Dasani.

Are you filtering it?
Did you sanitize the water tank and lines after dewinterizing?
Are you sure you opened all the low point drains and water faucets and all the A/F has been flushed out?
Could it just be the water you are using?

A new hose will/can give a smell and taste. I don't use the white hose that is supposed to be okay. Always leak after a couple of hook ups.

If all knew stuff( camper & hose). Just buy gallon waster for a while. And most obvious the water itself might be that way. Especially well water.

We have one filter for at the outlet, the white hose, another interior filter & then a Brita pitcher for all drinking water, including coffee & dogs... Overkill I know but I drink a lot of water to balance all the beer ;-)

West Marine sells a product that is called sweet water. It will take all taste out and clean your lines at the sametime. It might help to get rid of the rubber hose taste for sure....

We have had water taste issues in the past. We now only use bottled water to drink or make coffee. Good Luck
