For hanging a water filter, I put a J hook under the trailer. A loop of nylon rope is tied onto the filter and I just hang it on the hook. I attach the pressure regulator to the filter, so it hangs with it.

NOT pretty but it does the job.
Got some Aluminum screen and blocked all holes where bugs/wasps and such could get in and start nesting. Thought I would do this sooner rather than later.

I full time, and that is supposed to reduce the bugs getting in there and making a home, but I still didn't take any chances. Many wasps build paper nests, and if one gets made where a flame will come on, that would be bad.

I attach all the pipes first and just slip the filter bracket over the bolts and just hand tighten the wing nuts.
White pipe from city water, to filter, pressure regulator, then a 4ft white pipe to the RV inlet.

Now ALL the water coming in is filtered clean and at the right pressure. And only my drinking water goes through another filter process again inside the RV. Probably reduces the pressure for that specific tap but I can't tell the difference from my residential RO system pressure at all.

This keeps the water filter clean and off the ground and doesn't look like a mess.

Also, this should keep the gunk out of the RV water heater and tanks etc.
Wow, that water filter deal is pretty slick. Why ain't I thought of that. And i would guess you could run that hose to fill your tank with clean water as well. Does it make a difference in your flow rate in the trailer? I ain't concerned with pressure but I could use more GPM flow in mine.

I'm sure that any filter woukd reduce the GPM but I've tries every Tao with it and I'm extremely happy with the flow rate. Even the shower.

The cool thing is as the filters are residential filters, I can just buy faster GPM filters. Don't forget I just want clean water in. I filter the water AGAIN for the drinking faucet at the kitchen sink (SEE POST #1) Seems to be working great so far. On ebay you can buy these filters so cheap rather than the Camco filters at extremely high prices

Two things here !

1. Do you remove the unit before you hit the road ? Hope so !

2. The gunk in the water heater is not from settlement in the water supply, it forms from the water that vaporizes around the heater element, the gunk is the mineral deposits that separate out,

Yeah, cos I don't have a long enough hose pipe!!! Lol
Seriously yes, it's just when we are actually camping etc.

And you are right that the mineral deposits separate and cause the gunk but that's what the water filter is for, to trap as much deposits as it can. Not 100% but a vast % be for either hits the RV pipes.

I have the stainless hardware mesh covers over the openings that lead to anyplace where flames happen, too. Took a long confusing route to get there, didn't we?

Matrix, your previous email on...
....I also added an Odroid c1+ to my TV as we never watch regular TV channels....

I'm not a computer geek, but are you saying with this device you can save TV shows from your laptop to the microSD card and watch them on the RV tv? Whoa! I need to know more. Can you enlighten me?
