Was planning only to use it this first year only and go back to the camco external.

I love the Camco inline filters Amazon sells a 4 pack for less than $10 each

I assume you can use the inline filters when filling up the fresh water holding tank, too? Flow is good enough that you won't be sitting there filling for an hour?

No water goes into my RV without going through my filter and I can fill the fresh tank with filter about as fast as you can from the garden hose at my house but filter prevents crap from getting into my tanks.

We use the same Camco inline filter. Works great and there is enough constant water pressure for showering in the camper.

Do you ever boondocks or dry camp and carry water in separate tanks? If so, how do you filter?

I carry filtered 5 Gallon Jugs plus my 40 Gallon Freshwater tank. Use 40 gal for RV only and 5Gallon jugs for drinking but everything is filtered. I also have a 100Gallon Portable Tank that I can lay flat in the pickup bed of my truck for more water if needed and a small little pump you operate off a drill to pull water from the 100 gallon and move it to the RV. I bought these for my boat years ago and they work perfectly but rarely take the 100Gallon tank with us. Amazon sells the pump and tanks can be found anywhere.
