Am thinking about installing an Exterior In-Line Water Filter on my TT. Anybody else use one. Your thoughts and suggestions.
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.
We use a whole house filter mounted (Outside) it has a Clear housing so you can see what is running thru it! With this type of filter (You) can (Select) what (Element) you want to place (Inside)! The (Element) types can Vary from filtering (Small dogs to Microorganisms that they are still trying to give a Name)! The (Price$$) will vary by (What You want to filter OUT). The price of a (Element comparable to the Blue Filter) is cheaper than F/R stock type or Ole Blue! Youroo!!
Pretty new to this, you would use the external filter between the source and your regulator? Then regulator to RV? Thanks!
