With limited space on the counter, I was looking for another option, but if need be, I can just use the Zero Water in the RV too.
Your coach should already have an internal filter on it does it not?

Possibly not being from 1991.

Ron, it pains me to say this - but you're right:
>> "it's a 31 foot 1999 Coachmen Leprechaun"

So, Tonks Mom... if you have a water filter alread, it may be mounted and look something like this in a water cabinet somewhere:


My filter inside looks like this:

I am totally happy using the Camco filter even at 100 microns. I sanitize my tanks on a regular basis and the campgrounds that I stay at are not located in third world countries. I have no problems with drinking the water.

This is an example of an outside filter.


Camco in-line water filter

I don't know if there is one installed already. I will have to check around. I don't recall seeing one though, so my guess is there is not.

It would be very close to your water pump if it did.

Okay. It is under the bed, so will check when I go to the storage lot. Thank you so much.

I removed my WaterPur filter.

I removed our water filter this weekend (and I am going with an external filter). The removal was simple and required only an adjustable wrench, screwdriver, and a small amount of teflon tape.

Benefits - Immediate increase in water pressure! Outside shower actually sprays now! (No. I probably won't use it as a shower, but it will allow us to wash dishes outside on occasion.)

We found a missing kitchen knife that we had received as a gift that had fallen behind the filter through a hole in the shelf. (The hole is temporarily covered.)

During the filter replacement process, I always seem to spill water inside the cabinet no matter how careful I am.


Potential problems - The removed WaterPur filter seems well made with a very durable filter. I like the clear filter chamber. Also, the filter was in surprising good shape even after using it for nearly a year.

We are no longer filtering water from the "white water" tank. I know that if I clean and sanitize the system, we should be OK (The water should be potable.). However, It was nice having the extra protection.

I am not a "filtered" water "freak". However, I am not alway's sure of the water quality as some of the campgrounds that we stay at and feel that it is better safe than sorry! I hope that I can trust the external filters.
