I'm old fashioned, when running supply lines to toilets and faucets I always use solid tubing, nothing to weaken over time due to temperature exposure or pressure, once they are tightened at each end and are not leaking you're finished.
Off topic, but interesting comment. My sister and a friend of our have both had their homes flood when solid tubing failed for their toilets. My sister said her insurance person and a plumber have both said they see solid tubing fail far more often.
The bidet we have came with wire braided hose which is becoming more common from what I see in the plumbing department. I have some that has been in place for over fifteen years with no sign of leaks. Two of the new faucets I installed within the last few months have wire braided suppliy lines.
I always use a towel even when at home.
We do too. Towels are a lot easier wash than furniture. We keep plenty of towels handy for guests however most are here to enjoy the pool deck and they bring their own beach towels. If we are the guests, we bring our own. To us, it is just common courtesy.
We'd gone on a trip with our circle of non nudist friends to Hawaii, just after my last post a few years ago. We checked into a Sheraton Hotel and as my wife was checking in, I went to use the lobby restroom. First thing I noticed was the warmed seat and then a remote on the wall. I did my business and decided to try it. After that first use, I was hooked and sold on these bidet toilet seats.
We have 2.5 baths in this house and now, all three toilets have a bidet seat. Not everyone uses them as intended but they do love the warm seats. My wife was not so much a fan but has grown to like it more and more over the past couple of years. Even though we ensure complete cleanliness, we still used towels on all seats, even at home. It's something we've done since we first found out it was nudist/naturist etiquette.
So I believe I understand about using towels in public settings like beaches and resorts including the reason behind the rule. I am curious about in "private" social setting such as visiting a friends house or being invited to another naturists house for dinner/swim/etc. Would you take a towel to sit on? For that matter do you use one around your house? I have read comments about people getting visitors and after telling them about being nudist proceed to get comfortable in some cases with the visitor choosing to join this unplanned for state of "dress". Does sitting on towels come into play here too? I very interested in what the experienced long time nudists have done/do or experienced when visiting (not to discourage comments by newer nudists I welcome your opinions too just wanting to be clear I want experiences not just opinions).
Definitely towel in all situations its the hygienic and courteous thing to dont want to accidentally leave an scat tracks behind.

Interesting, I would have to talk to my plumber friend and call my insurance.
But again, a solid supply line from your shut off to the bottom of the toilet tank is solid brass. I have seen solid brass p-traps corrode at the bottom of the trap because of all the grey waste that goes down a kitchen and bathroom sink and as it sits in there would eat into the brass, so I always use PVC there, but a supply line to a toilet is only seeing fresh water so again the only place they would leak is if not tightened enough upon installation, which gets corrected right away. Once done that's it. If these cases were due to an amateur installing it incorrectly and not done by a professional plumber I could see that here could be the possibility of them leaking and if that's the case the insurance might not cover damage due to a repair that was not done correctly and by a licensed professional.
As someone that has done RV holding tank cleaning and clearing, flushable wipes don't dissolve. They frequently cause expensive cleaning cost. Things to never put in an RV toilet include: flushable wipes, condoms, diapers, any kind of plastic or any type of cloth. Also never pour any type of grease that solidifies as it cools.
