Can you people with the filtering systems post some pictures of your set up? I'm thinking of puting something permanent in the water bay that I hook the fill hose to and filter what goes into the tank. Then a carbon filter under the sink for the drinking water. Would really be interested to see what some have come up with.

Use only bottled water for drinking and coffee.

We use the tank water, I drink it and so far I am suffering no ill affects. Coffee is also as I expect it to be so I suspect water threads are similar to tires and tv's and anything else that is in an RV. As RVM 21 I drink tank water, I am also immune to almost anything.

As RVM23, I have a high threshold for meds and haven't been sick in over 20+ years. I also don't contribute plastic bottle to the landfills.

We always drink from the FW tank. Just fill it with the garden hose and off we go. We have very good water here in town so no filter is required. No if we are at an unknown campground then that's different. The cold beer though is always safe to drink.

Ted, you have an hour to either edit or delete your posts unless somebody quotes you, then everyone can see it.

We ordered the whole house filter as on option on the MH. It's plumbed directly into the system and hangs from a bracket in the wet bay.
