I added a kitchen sink filter, and have used the water for drinking, ice, cooking etc with perfect taste and no issues so far. I use a good quality filter and change at the beginning of the season. The fresh water tank should be sanitized yearly too.

Water purification

I pour bleach into the fresh water hose every time we get to a campground before hooking it to the spigot. But we still carry a few cases of water bottles to drink. We only use campground water to shower, wash cooking utensils and for the toilet. And we use a whole camper filter but still use the water as stated...

We treat the tank at beginning of season, only run filtered water in, including State Parks, but carry a brita filtered pitcher. We fill this from our tank and put in frig.

Making something artful from all those dog owners who don't pick up after their pet.

I full time and I sanitize my fresh tank once a year and filter all water that comes in with a two stage filter. The first stage is a particulate filter and the second is a charcoal. Both filters are 1 micron. The particulate filter usually lasts 6 months on my home base site and two weeks in the state park where I am now. The charcoal filter usually lasts 9-10 months, but both filters virtually plugged up this past week at the same time. The park had a water main leak and when they turned the water back on some crud obviously hit my filters. I turned on the water hose I use for car washing, etc. and ran it on the ground for 45 minutes or so. Changed both filters and everything was good again.

I didn't know the leak was being repaired or that they had turned off the water until after the filter plugging. I was out of the park, but I'm sure glad I had the filters in place.

I do not use bottled water at all. I feel both 1 micron filters work well and the water always tastes good to me.

We are sailors and own a X213. We just completed a five year cruise where we lived aboard a boat that has two fresh water tanks. We do not drink bottled water. We kept the tanks clean and sanitary using a small amount of bleach each time we filled the tanks and also used hydrogen peroxide in the water. Never had a odor or taste issue. Just make sure the water you take on is clean and potable.
