RC 1700 Caravan drinking water hose reel

Caravanning and holidays go together. Setting up the Van and preparing to go are the two less enjoyable times when on your trip. The water hose connection can sure have its challenges and who likes coiling up the hose before you leave. Messy, tangles and somehow it always leaks.
Garden hoses are a big NO NO due to the composition of the hose line. Especially when the hose is exposed to the sun with water sitting in it.
Lay flat hoses take up less space but have to be completely unwound to use. Even if all you need is 2 metres of hose line.
The answer for many Australian Caravan enthusiasts is the RC1700 Drinking water hose reel from AK Reels. The Australian made and owned hose reel company that pioneered this innovation.
Most caravan owners chose to carry the reel in their boot and then mount it on the tow bar using an adaptor when they arrive at their site. Others chose to have the RC 1700 fitted into the boot area. Many satisfied customers have their van constructed to specification and then the reel can be completely built into the van itself with access via the portal accessory..
The reel holds 15 metres of food grade drinking water hose and operates easily through the locking mechanism to any desired length. When you are ready to go just a short tug on the hose to release the locking mechanism and the hose can be guided back into the housing ready to go.
