Bulkhead wash down fitting

Has anyone used the Hose Coil fixture for a wash down connection to attach a hose?

I inherited the Jabsco on the previous boat, and it was difficult to get the male piece to seat properly within the female fitting.

I want to use plastic, or SS. Any other fitting recommendations?

Image attached showing both.

I have the Jabsco turn and push fittings shown in your pdf for my anchor washdown, having used them for maybe 5 years and I like them. But you are right, they take considerable force to lock them together. As in, I have to get down on my knees and push hard, especially the last 1/4 turn or so. Still, I'd recommend them.

I have one of the bulkhead fittings but it is installed in the deck. Works fine but it is hard to turn. I put a bit of silicone grease on the hose end fitting and that made it a bit easier to lock in.

I have two of these on the bow for anchor wash down (fresh and salt) and another freshwater one in the cockpit. Use coil hoses on all of them and they work pretty well.
