Also welcome to LeeAnna & Ed. Traveling Tuckers & Tales of the Big Dogs. I'm not really sure when they joined up, but I just noticed so thought it's about time I welcome them! They have a motorhome & travel with two Boxer dogs. I hope to follow some adventures of theirs soon!
Now for the easy water filter.
Many, many of us use this one.
The Camco "Taste Pure" RV Water filter in the blue tube. Where I am, the water isn't really all that great, it has a lot of calcium in it, which causes that white chalky residue on things. With this filter, it really cuts down on that issue. Plus when traveling, I want my water to be purer than it is coming from just a straight potable source.
Even if I were tent camping, I think I'd still pack one along for water usage. Although you'd have to be sure it's in a leakproof container as it will hold water in it after use, which drains out of it, but will stay moist enough to get things wet. I keep mine propped up in one side of my double kitchen sink behind the dish drainer I have in there.
I found this video on youtube, which from watching it, I realized I was hooking mine up wrong. In my case, it probably didn't matter all that much since I only fill my water tank rather than keep it hooked up on the city inlet.
I am in no way affiliated with this product other than the fact that I use one. I just find it important to find some kind of filtration system for your RV's water usage.
And this product is made in the USA! Yay! I don't know if the discarded ones can be recycled though? I'll have to ask at the recycling center next time I pay them a visit. I just bought a new one to replace the one I bought last year.
BTW, I saw in an email the other day where someone referred to an RV being only the motorized kind. Well, that's not true! That would be a motorhome rather than to simplify into an RV. RV's come in all different kinds of shapes, sizes & types! As we all know already anyhow....
~As always, be kind to your pets, clean up after them on your travels & respect your neighbor~
