fresh water

Every now and then, for reasons that boggle the mind, water is turned off at a CG. Rarely is there any advance notice. This time, here in Tucson, we were told a day in advance of an overnight shutdown. That is one reason I always have at least 1/3 tank of fresh water at all times. This almost falls in the thread about what we carry but hope we never need!

If a campground is on well water they need to periodically change the filters in the pumphouse, shouldn't take more than 10 minutes. IMHO mid week would be the best time to do this. Advance notice would be nice so nobody is in the shower just about to rinse off and the water quits.

If I am staying more than overnight, I typically fill the fresh tank to 1/2 or so. Have been on the receiving end of "bad water" more than once.

The last time was in Tampa 2 years ago when the entire cities water supply was poisoned by a chemical spill for several days. Luckily I had filled my tank since we were there for 6 weeks. The campground had shut off the water to prevent "uninformed" (not so bright) folks from drinking it.

In this case, it was turned off at 11 PM-5AM. Very convenient.
