We have a very deep well and very good water at home. We fill up our water tank before we leave and I use it for everything but drinking. I don't know why but our water coming from the RV tank gets a change in taste that I do not like, it is kind of plastic-y. Most likely it is psychological because the RV is not even a year old so the tank is in good condition and clean. Either way my husband I swear we can taste a difference.

We use the onboard tank or CG source for everything. There is a whole RV filter between the tank and pump, and I have a hose filter that is used for all the water we fill the tank with or get from a CG faucet. We usually keep the MH ready to travel, so some water stays in the tank at all times. If we have an extended time between trips, I might add a few tablespoons of Clorox before I complete the fill.

An added point came to light a few days ago...We foster and adopt special needs kids. During our most recent training session the agency we work through said any family with special needs kids needs to keep a 3-day emergency kit including clothing, first aid, food, and water...among other things. Our stocked MH contains everything on their list. If we have to "bug out" (a term frequently used on M.A.S.H. 4077) we have almost everything we need ready to go. Where practical we have duplicate medical equipment on board, but need to load medicines. We might need to stock some perishables, but non-perishable food, clothing, first aid supplies, and water are pretty much already on board, and at least some level of gas is in the tank.

Tank water of course.
What is safer, the produce you buy from an unkonwn source (meaning grocery store) or the water from a frequently tested and highly regulated source. The fresh water tank is everybody's own responsibility.

Flushed out the tanks the other day and started the Fridge/freezer to be sure it still worked after the l o n g winter. filled the ice trays and the next morning I had ice cubes that I used in my soda that afternoon and I found it very good I could not taste any thing but water.
