Water Filter

I am curious as to if the group finds value in hooking up a water filter between the campground water source and the hose to the RV and if so, which ones you have found work well.

Have a dual in-line filter hooked up outside the rig, first is 5 ppm particle and 2nd is 5 ppm charcoal. Last for 3 months and about 7 or 8 bucks apiece. Takes 2 minutes to change.

Ya know, for years we camped not using any filter at all. Our 2000 Mallard had a separate drinking water spigot at the kitchen sink with a filter, but we never used it. We seem to have survived okay. When we bought this MircoLite, it had a filter in a pretty inaccessible place, so I removed it at the end of last season. This year, we are going to use the Campco filter, but we also have a Britta pitcher in the fridge that we use for drinking water, ice cubes and cooking.

We use the Campco filter at the CG faucet to keep the minerals from growing on all the fittings. But for drinking water we keep gallon jugs of filtered water from home or stuff we buy in the store for longer trips.

Love these and I buy them in bulk.

I removed the "whole RV" OEM filter and replaced it with a pressure tank.

Also running dual filters. In my case, the first is a 5 micron string filter, the second is a 0.5 micron rated for cysts. One set is good for a season.

We use the Campco (blue) filters to keep the minerals out of the system and we use bottled water for drinking and stuff like brushing teeth.

What does that buy you? You don't think the city water connection is adequate? Won't that put undue pressure on your plumbing fittings?

Pressure tank is invaluable when using a water pump. We camp without water hook-ups 90 % of the time.
