Often while watching sports on television, I'll also cruise the Internet and copy things that get my interest or may help me later on when using our trailer. In my files on sanitizing I have these words: Sodium Dichloro-s-Triazinetricone or Sodium Dichlor for short. I'm like you and have allergies and reactions to lots of things, it may pay to Google them as there was likely something RV related.

If your going to be traveling your going to run into all types of water and a lot of it will be heavily chlorinated. A good charcoal block filter for the whole house is probably your best recourse, it will remove chlorine for a reasonable price.

We haven't looked into the whole house filters but have seen other campers use them in the past. Is there some good ones out there or ones we should stay away from?

Mine came with one, which was junk, so I replaced it with a GE household water filter I got at Lowes. The filter assembly was $20 and a two pack of filters was $11. You can get all sorts of filters, from the basic replacement filters I prefer to specific filters for all manner of things. It's mounted where all water entering the system, either from my water tank or from a city water supply, gets filtered down to five microns.

The filter housing I have. If you have to custom mount it try to find somewhere easily accessible and water damage is minimized in case of failure.

My filter element, filters debris and chemicals to include chlorine down to five microns.

I bought one at Home Depot it's a ge, most important to me was availability of replacement cartridges. With your wife's allergies you may want to use two filters you can get a filter that connects to a garden hose at most camping supply stores even walmart carries them for less than twenty dollars. I wouldn't want to take any chances with something that serious, along with ruining travel plans.
Happy travels with your new rig.

I have never drank the water from my rv, not even when connected to city or park water. I only use it to wash dishes and take showers, flush....

I always have a regulator and a filter on the city connector.

we bring gallons of water from home and some we buy that is used for cooking and coffee.

I do flush and sterilize the fresh tank every spring....
