I just purchased a Watts regulator w/ 6-9 gpm flow and over sized cleanable filter @ 4-5 gpm. I plan on mounting it in the bay of the 5er. Keep the water outside and dry inside. hope so!!!

Don't know if you all use a "Y" valve or not, I'm sure I'm not the first. (real nice to have when you need to water the dog or clean something)

OBTW,don't go out and buy a $12.00 fancy brass one, the the cheap yellow plastic one from Walmart works just as good and is cheaper to replace if you forget it on the faucet when you leave camp. (dont ask how I know this)

I also have a "inline Camco" that I have never used.
I just bought a new Oxygenics shower head to install for this summer, anxious to see what thats like. jdadoug
I installed a Oxygenics shower head last year and it makes a big difference. Nothing like the Oxygenics shower head!

I still don't drink the water typically, but I like it filtered, and one thing I hate is when a filter restricts the flow ( low pressure in the shower) so I high flow would be nice.
Should I look at Home Depot for a residential style?

Any one out there please share with me. Thanks
The replaceable cartridges are also 20 bucks a year if you get the high flow RV rated ones. My camper came with a whole house filter that I removed and replaced with an expansion tank. I use the inline hose bib one for filtration.

I have not purchased yet, but the canister types at home depot are advertising larger flow rates, and the replacement canisters are usually 2 for $20 bucks. This is all hosehold grade. Remember, you stamp RV on the side of it and it doubles the price..
