That is weird. Never seen anything like that. 
 

I work with a PF trolley from a car. I left a coil of PU hose on top of my car once for about an hour, came back and something had chewed clean through it with razor sharp teeth. Made a right mess of it. Think it may have been a squirrel.

That’s strange we use that hose regularly with 80 degrees water and the hose lasts at least two/ three years .

My earlier van was a dark blue Citroen Relay. That used to get extremely hot in the back near the roof. I've never seen that before but then it looks like ordinary pole hose.

We have had Exceed's orange and red hose for years and this has never happened.

The current van is white and it remains pretty cool in the hot sun compared to the blue one which is still on my drive.

I have had the hose probably 3 years, the hotter water has certainly swollen the size of the hose.  Thankfully just had to chop off about 3m of hose.  I do have a fair bit of pole hose on reel n it grinds of hd reel name plate when fully wound in, so could be weakening the structure of hose.

We have 30 meters of pole hose on all our reels , I find the exceed blue stretches when you pull it tight the Gardiners green Pu is very good it’s tough stuff once I have used up all the exceed hose I will be going over to that , I buy 4x 100 meter rolls at a time so still have a bit of stock  by me 😂😂😂

We lined inside the roof of the van with double sided foil wrapped bubble wrap. It's easy to do. It's glued on with aerosol carpet adhesive. This helps keep the van warm in the winter and cooler in the summer. We have downpipes bracketed on the roof crossmembers with short self tapper screws. These hold Harris Poles and spare wfp poles and they help to keep the insulation from falling. The whole cargo area of the van is insulated to some degree, especially under, over and around the tank.

Fitted 30 metres of PU hose to my top reel today and decided to cut some of my thermal hose off. Forgot it was under pressure and got soaked again but I eventually got there. Don't know why I didn't do it sooner? 🤔

We have 100 meters if microbore on the reels then add 30 meters of pole hose

With the sun beating down all day on the roofs of vans then they become like frying pans. You don't realise till you put your hand on them.

Does microbore quickly release the heat from the pure? That's the reason I have stuck with the thermal hose.

I have one reel with normal yellow microbore on it the other has hydro heat hose the hydro heat hose does keep the heat in a bit more but it’s a lot heavier and seams to swell internally over time compared to the yellow .
