The safest filtered water available is going to be from a reverse osmosis setup. I'd like to install one in our TT if I could find one that doesn't dump waste water in it's process
I was thinking of doing the same thing? I think the waste water can go back into the trailer potable water tank, so no lost water. The water in the trailer tank (potable) only gets cleaner as it's cycled thru the RO system. Might mean more frequent filter changes? The only drawback I can see is over filling the trailer tank if hooked up to a city water supply for a length of time and using lots of RO water.

I don't think rye freezes very easily, but liquid ice cubes are good, if you keep them away from water. That works with vodka to (I've heard)..

Look it up there is lots of info on this.
That just a frickin infomercial for the gal's products and AND with no scientific validity. Unless you go COMPLETELY away from all potentially harmful activities such as packaged foods, microwaves, cell phones, plastic latex gloves, outdoor sun, insect bites etc etc.

Just stay home, HEPA filter your air, close all the blinds, have raw food delivered to your house (rinsed in your own distiller water),

Reverse osmosis setups are all made from plastic so that is out to. All stainless distillers are available, so that might work except for the nickel in the alloy.

Really, seriously.

I've been a health scientist for almost 40 years, and the crap I have seen has made me a bit jaded. I could go on and on, but rather go work on my PDI Surge protector install.

Since I came down with beaver fever last summer, my better half will only drink bottled water and she will give it to the grand kids also. Next month when I bring the 5er home, I will sterilize the fresh water tank and the water lines and put a new filter in. Then I will drink the water from the tank. I didn't drink the water from the campground but brushed my teeth with it, and came down with a quick weight loss diet

That's why there is no one on planet Earth older than about 30 yrs old. All because they didn't have bottled water at the grocery store before then. Sure glad they came up with plastic bottles of water. It is/has saved the human race from extinction.


It did my granddad in just after he turned 98 in Sep 1976, he drank well water from a bucket with a porcelain covered dipper his entire life. He might have made it to 100 with bottled water.

We don't drink the water out of the camper faucet since I winterize with antifreeze, we have a 1.5 gallon and a 1 gallon water jug in the camper that we fill up either at home or from the campground tap. The 1 gallon goes in the fridge for drinking and the 1.5 sits on the counter for use with cooking. We do usually buy a case of water just to keep in the camper, one case will usually last us all camping season.

we almost always fill our FW tank with water from home.
i know it's good.

but we have no problems using city water the few times we've had hookups.
and have had to refill the FW tank from CG water and had no problems.

water out here is pretty good nearly everywhere.

i think the public has become brainwashed about bottled water.
many studies have found that most people can't tell the difference between bottled water and tap water.
if you really are that finicky about your drinking water, use something like a Brita and stop polluting our country with plastic bottles.

but i used to backpack a lot and used iodine tablets in my drinking water. so, i'm not as finicky about drinking water.

i know my grandparents would be turning in their graves if they were told that people PAY for drinking water, even though there's plenty of tap water available.

We usually take a full potable tank of Anacortes water when we set out. It's in the top 5 nationwide city systems for quality. Most trips, we find the CG water OK but if we're going to use it for beverages, we run it though a Brita jug.

Since we're ex-pat Brits, we don't drink much straight water, we use it for tea and coffee, so the drink actually tastes of something!
