The pos rubber hose I got from ace the black color comes off when you roll it up if it's wet outside.

My red hose doesn't do it, just the black... Have you used this brand/style before?

I have the black rubber hose on my van. I don't like it. It's too grabby and leaves my hand or towels black when I roll it up on the reel. I'm thinking about replacing it with something slippery.

air compressor hose is the best for a carpet cleaning truck, 100ft is like less than 5lbs and fits on a smaller live reel

surprisingly the orange one from harbor freight is my favorite, still using the same one from 5yrs ago.

let us know how it holds up, Nick
the hose should be fine...that type FM fitting though.....isn't one I've found to be tremendously durable with regular daily use
I got fooled by the beefy looking fittings on a Goodyear hose once before. Aluminum anodized to look like brass.

I bought three supposedly heavy duty rubber hoses at HD and returned them after two weeks. The counter person said she didn't know why they sold them, as they were the most returned product she'd seen.

Turned out they were listed as rubber on the shelf, but the package (like yours) said 'rubber formulation', and a form of plastic, not rubber.

Hope yours are the real thing, or returnable.
