We used to sleep in our moho, but now we worry about the water tank leaking and we could drown, so we just use the moho to carry the tent we sleep in outside. And did you say cook in the RV?? Are you crazy?? Have you felt how hot the flames get on the stove?????

We drink whatever's available, if there's a hookup we use it, if not it's water from the tank. Dogs, however, get double filtered UV treated RO water from glass lined storage carboys.....
You guys made me smile this morning.

You are exactly right. I for one never go more than 25 miles from home, that way I can cover the trailer before going back home to sleep. Don't you know that most mattresses in RV's are horrible. I don't want to take a chance on a night of unrest. Cooking is out of the question, do you really want to clean up the back splash from cooking bacon when you can do it at home, only 25 miles away. Of course the real deal breaker is that if you use the bathroom and have to empty the black tank then won't your neighbors know for sure that you used your own bathroom? I prefer to stop at a gas station on the way home or just grin and bare it until I'm in the safety of my own home. As far as drinking from the fresh water tank I'm sure most would agree with me that if you use it once then you have that very difficult task of sanitizing the tank once or twice a year. That is out of the question. Maybe I'll delegate that task to my servant who usually does those types of tasks.
My question is should we really be towing our travel trailers or driving our motor homes when every mile that passes brings us closer to having to grease our wheel bearings?
I'll have to contemplate all this over a drink at home before I go back to my TT. It sure is clean tho!

We fill ours up with fresh Rocky Mountain water (2/3 or so) before we leave. Then we know we will have good water anyplace we go. We've had some pretty bad tasting water at hookups. So yes, we drink, clean and cook with it.

Interesting thread. Does anyone sleep, cook or use the water in their MH. Why would you not? Aren't these some of the reasons we bought one? Saying good by to tent camping or roughing it.

Yes we drink the water, yes we sleep in it even when at the s/b, and yes we cook in it. I recently made lasagna, baked cookies and a double layer cake, roasted chicken in apple sauce and much more. Being a chef I find it hard not to cook and bake anywhere we are.

So you wouldn't drink water from a plastic water tank, but you will drink from a plastic bottle. I would think you would leach more chemicals from a freshly made bottle, than from an aged water tank.

Yea, but doesn't that water come from the on-board water tank? Besides, if I'm following your logic, the next time you are sick you are going to drink your water out of the ........ I just can't say it, I just can't.
