Well, I'm not one for buying these gimmicks. However there was a review on our local news on the green expandable pocket hose " the hose that grows". They gave it a thumbs up last year. While at ACE hardware they had a sale for $15. Yep bought it. If it works as it's claims it'll be handy around the MH for quick cleanups or washes.

So what "as seen in TV " things worked out for you??

I bought a "Side Socket" and love it.

Can you find the particular brand you bought on Amazon and post its link? I thought the idea was interesting but the one brand I checked on Amazon had NO 4 or 5 star reviews; everyone hated it.

There must be different "grades" of those hoses. I bought one at Walgreen, don't remember the price, and it was junk. Tore apart in just a few uses. Oh well.

I have one of those hoses and its convenient that it is lightweight and takes up very little space. I use if for filling my fresh water tank.

Have the Pocket Hose for over a year and works great. Bought the ceramic knife a couple years ago but quit using them after breaking three plates curring on them with knife.

Not sure if it was a "as seen on TV" but we use our Vidalia onion chopper all the time.

Comfort Control Harness for my dogs. Works better than any other harness we have purchased.

I have also been seeing a new commercial for an expandable hose. They claim its supposed to be much better than the original.

I bought two of those pocket hoses. Both blew up on me second time I used them. The interior is like a prophalactic, the outside is crummy cotton.

Are the new ones okay for drinking water? I knew the old ones said not to use for potable water.
