Our outhouse is inhouse also. In the house with the wheels on it.

I know too much about bottled water. Often it is no better than what comes out the tap.. i use park water, filtered via an activated charcoal filter I made myself. then filtered agian via a Brita filter for drinking. (not for other use)

So far I've not been bothered by 'Revenge" (one of it's names) since doing that. Actually.. What comes out the Brita is often better than bottled quality.

I can't see either paying for water or filling up land-fills with bottles. If you are going to buy bottled please consider a cooler and 5 gallon jugs.

In the last 7 years of travel in 340 campsites in 49 states and 5 Provinces, we have used nothing but the CG water. Neither of us have ever had one second of problems. The BW did have a dose of the stomach flu from a casino in Laughlin a few years back but I haven't suffered a minute of discomfort.

The water supply hooked to the coach is filtered through one sediment/carbon filter, then a water softener and finally into the coach. I have an additional Culligan Ice Maker filter on my ice maker water supply line. We don't use much ice so the little bit that gets consumed does not concern me. Most of the time the ice maker is off anyway and if we happen to be at what I think is a really bad water supply location, I shut the ice maker water supply totally off.

More on topic, when we do get any minor bowel infection or need to prep for a colonoscopy, thank goodness, our "outhouse" is only a few steps away.

For the water debate you may want to read:
Bottled water - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bottled water in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Water supply and sanitation in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

For us we bought the fully contained MH to use completely which means the bathroom, kitchen, bedroom etc completely. We bought and paid for it, we will use it.

The friend I bought my coach from is, along with his lovely wife, the most exuberant Columbian-born gentleman you could ever meet. He really does remind me of Ricky Ricardo, of the I Love Lucy TV series.

To celebrate their new citizenship, he and the wife toured the USA, visiting all the iconic sites (many of which this native has never seen), amassing 15K miles on the pristine Fleetwood.

I asked about bottled water, filtration, chlorinating and he laughed. "It's no problem!" Indeed, they'd never put a drop of chlorine into the tanks, but had installed a filter to take out particulates.

Recently, I pulled the tanks and overhauled the plumbing hookups along with cleaning up the bay and installing a floor drain. Those tank interiors were perfect, not a sign of algae. Go figure.

Still, I use bleach, per your recommendations here at iRV2.

I insist that if we are in a cg with a bathroom that number 2 should never be done in the MH. It smells and at least in the past has been crappy to empty so to speak.
Wife says she would rather use the MH bathroom.
Most RVers I have met agree with me.
What are your opinions?
Thanks
X2 we never use the rv for that we always use the parks facilities be it National or private campgrounds..And no toilet paper in the black tank either.... Im sure that statement is really going to chase the cat out of the cracker barrel

Why did you get an RV?

I'm always amazed at people who get something and then are afraid to use it. Of course that would involve learning how to use it, so that might be the problem.

I use all the faciities in my rv. In fact I traded my old rv on this one for the human sized bathroom!

I get the revenge often, i always thought it was from my loove of food mexican. And no, I don't consider it a problem.

This Month's TrailBlazer (Thousand Trails Brag Mag) has an article on tanks, and the use of bleach.. They recommend a NON Chlorie bleach alternative,, IE: Chlorx 2 (If I have spelled it right).

Since we do not have a washer/dryer in the RV, opted for storage instead (And glad we did) kind of moot here.
