I used a Uv light in the boating word, it would not hurt to use one. We mused them to primarily worry about sewage in the salt water.

UV light

UV lights have a useable life span of about a year which would be fine for an RV but I am not sure how they will stand up to vibration and a lot of on off cycles. I personally will be installing a ozone generator in my water tank when I find a appropriate one. The generator will oxidize any pathogens in the system and precipitate some of the minerals that create hardness in water then a cartridge filter will remove the unwanted particles. I have used ozone generators in surface wells with excellent results.

The best would be a 12 volt corona discharge ozone generator. They are often used in aquariums and sometime restaurants. I will do a search and see what I find. Could take a while I am at camp Monaco and they have poor wifi.

They hold up fine. The RV Water filter store resells 12V versions of the Sterilight: Sterilight Silver Series UV Systems - FreshWaterSystems.com

You just have to make sure you buy a UV system that matches your incoming water flow. If it's too fast, the UV light won't do its job.

After reading all the material I could find, I think I'm going to go with a dual cartridge system. One for sediment and the other a charcoal filter. I'm also going to sanitize the fresh water tank a couple times a year with the peroxide.

Ozone generators range from 100 to 500 dollars The cheaper ones do not have a compressor, injector or pump so you have to add them. Some models are ; Prozone PZ1, PZ3-X and PZ5 [$366 @ amerimer.com] also Del Ozone DEL CLEAR, DELCDS-16, DELMCD-50.
I could not find a good quality 12 volt so I will be using a PZ5 110 Volt model and install the air line in my tank and run it when I fill my tank for 10 minutes. If you want you could use a venturi type of injector and use the cheaper models to also do your city water supply.

You might want to go beyond page one when you do your Google "research".

Same goes for your suggestion to a poster to do a search on "Danger of Reverse Osmosis Water" -- from what pops up, find us a credible source (i.e., where actual science is involved) that shows RO dangers.
Right on. The best and most coast effective method of water purification is a RO system. And by the way, RO water is not "soft water". There is no ion exchange. Also, it will not damage any kind of water piping, in fact it will be beneficial. There are places in the US and other countries that RO water is their only source of potable water.

Sorry guys have had no internet for a few days. In Canada any Health food store should carry hydrogen peroxide. In the us I cannot see why Walgrens could not get it for you. Also here is the company I deal with. Make sure you get mixing instructions.

Amazon has it online. I found the ratings and comments helpful.
