looking to replace the hoses - was thinking of Shields 135 but I have seen a lot clear of reinforced clear potable used . Thoughts Lee/Dave/Ron
I have used the reinforced clear hose for my genny as well as the potable system. With the genny I tried to make sure there were no short bends to impair the flow. Unlike the potable system that will not suck more than about 3 gallons per minute the genny will probably double that and I don't want a collapsed or partially collapsed hose limiting the supply. I think the supply for the genny is only 1/2" which makes a large radius bend easier to fit in the space. Supply for the engines will always be the wire reinforced hose.
Your right, the insurance is an issue . It looks like the clear hoses are not rated for below water line use . Just wondering if I was missing something as I have seen several units with the clear hose . Now thinking of Trident 130 ! rated for that use .
