Do those cartridges you posted the link to sit inside the filter housing for the whole coach water filter?
And...can you post a link to the UV filter or the mod you did to make that clean ice?
Nope, not a dumb question! On both our our CC's, the filter cartridge slipped into the 10" housing canister. And in both coaches, this filtered water both coming in from the shore hose bib, or out of the tank if boon docking or traveling down the road. So all of the water coming inside for consumption, is filtered. (Depending upon where we are, we will sometimes still use one of the hose bit blue Camco filters, to catch any larger contaminates. We buy them in the two pack, and in areas with hard water and or potential for 'other then just water' - the Camco will catch the large stuff. This keeps the more expensive whole house filter from needing to be replaced more frequently. On that line, another tip is to purchase a good quality water hose, as some parks water pressure are so high, they can rupture a hose. The CC usually has a good whole house pressure regulator, which protects inside of the coach piping. A more robust water hose, can save you from needing to buy a hose bib regulator. Though many of us, we do, have a hose bib regulator for those parks that very clearly warn of extremely high water pressure
For the UV light, I've included a link to their site. As all of our incoming water is filtered thru the Whole House, we really did not need to include the inline filter that comes with their product, but went ahead and did so because it came with the kit. (Only negative, is needing to replace that smaller filter too
!). Due to this being for drinking/cooking/coffee pot duty, we went with the 1L Per Minute unit.
Depending upon where your kitchen sink is in relation to your refrigerator. Many do the math on the cost of labor of running a 1/4" tube over from the kitchen sink to the ice maker. Sometimes it's just easier/less costs to install a second Acuva dedicated to the fridge
! (And note. Acuva is just one of the UV products available. We've been pleased with the quality of our unit, and faucet too.)
Best of luck to you,
