As a result of a recent heath department inspection, all water hoses that connect a RV unit to the campground water system must be rated for potable water use only. Such a hose can be purchases from most hardware stores. In order to facilitate the changing out of the existing hoses we have, in our supply shop, approved hoses. Check with Tom, the campground manager, if you want us to take care of this item for you. We will, at no charge, change out any garden hose with an approved hose for you RV connection to the campground water system. I know that this might seem as a needless requirement and that as a kid you drank from a garden hose many times. Better be safe than sorry, so go with it.
