I don't think we have a water filter. I bought the one that goes on the outside of the RV and just ordered a little Culligan one that goes on the kitchen faucet itself.

We use a Zero Water machine in the house and it is probably the best on the market. We could bring that, but it takes up so much room and the cartridges are very expensive.

The d-10 level 1 filters are 5 micron!
Those wonky camco outside hose filters are 100 micron use decide which one filters better.

If your going to have a filter at-least get a micron rating down to 20

Certianly good advice. But I have no problems with campground water, other than the taste.

In regards to several prior posts, I disagree you can buy the "correct" filter at Lowes, etc. Their filters do not have the correct male extension on the filter top, which contains an O-ring! Trying to save a buck is not always a viable pursuit!

Actually, the filter housing holds the o'ring, the casing top or manifold is fitted with the boss squeezing the o'ring for the seal. I lost it briefly one time, I'll never forget how it doesn't work without it.

And the filter cardridge is 30+ from the maker, suspect the dealer is going to Walmart!

Some people never believe in others! I will post the exact cost of the filters when I pay for them. IF you are more comfortable buying filters, other than at the dealer, please do so. Your comments are not productive!

Speaking of "o" rings, have we heard back from the person who couldn't stop his water filter canister from leaking?

He posted last night.
