In-Line Water Filter

Am thinking about installing an Exterior In-Line Water Filter on my TT. Anybody else use one. Your thoughts and suggestions.

I've been using the Camco ones since I bought my trailer.

Make sure whatever you buy you get a pressure regulator. Some parks have a lot of pressure and others not enough. They're not very expensive and a good insurance policy against a blow out. My 5th came with a filter but I also use a camco filter before my water regulator

We've used both the RV canister units and the "built-in ones" that came in our 3 class A mh's. We, after 50 years of RV'in in 10 different units, prefer the RV canisters. All the water connections are outside the RV in case of a connection leak and changing filters/filter elements is easy with no chance of water spilling in the cabinet or bay in which the filter resides.

Walmart sells some inexpensive ones - just get one of those and use it. I have been using the blue ones from Camco for years and have had zero issues.

X2 - I test water pressure with a gauge before hooking up, and decide whether to use the pressure reg or not. At a recent stay it was only 22 lbs. I attach the Camco filter right at the mast. If anything blows, it's 30 feet away from my trailer. Water flow to the shower is still fine.

Anytime you can move water filters/connections outside of your TT....you have won! Impossible to predict when a leak will began. Put your filter outside.

Pretty new to this, you would use the external filter between the source and your regulator? Then regulator to RV? Thanks!

The Camco filter I use attaches to my city water inlet on the side of my trailer with a spring reinforced piece of hose so the weight of the filter doesn't kink the hose. The pressure regulator connects to the other end where you connect the hose at the source.

Regulator goes upstream of anything you want to protect. I put mine at the spigot thereby protecting all my equipment.

I use Camco filter and it works great, but my TT also has a filter, so the water in my camper is awesome.

Me too, but I also have a Brita pitcher for water we drink. The water is excellent wherever we camp.

Is that a off the shelf unit and is it for use externally? I like the idea of keeping it outside and since it is permanent it would be one less thing I have to mess with when setting up.
