Rubber taste

Has anyone found a surefire way to get rid of the rubber taste that the water gets from the fresh water hose? We can fill a plastic water jug at the same faucet the hose is connected to without the bad taste. I use the white hose sold at all the RV shops and they all make the water taste bad at every park.

Fill your hose with a bleach/water mix. Let it sit for an hour or so, rinse until the bleach smell disappears.

I use vodka in the water. After drinking 2 -3 full glasses of it the taste doesn't seem to bother me anymore.

I use a whole house carbon filter and install it just before the hose connects to the rv. This works for me.

I use a water filter that screws onto the hose for my city water and for filling the FWT available from Walmart. Make sure to run the water a bit to clear out the charcoal from the filter before filling your tanks.

This is what I have done. I have also done what radams has done which works for me too. LOL
