Both of my filters are rated at 3-4 gpm, but the filters are not the only thing to consider in flow. Most inexpensive pressure regulators are low flow and mine is a Watts 263A which is rated at 4-4.5 gpm. Don't forget your hose, I use a 5/8" hose not a 1/2", and then there are the connectors you might use getting to your water hookup on your rig. Make sure you get a full flow one of these also, most of the cheapies you see at Wal-Mart, etc are low flow also.


I had someone tell me one time that a 5 micron filter wouldn't need changing as often. True, but then no filter would never need to be changed, but I like my water as clean as I can reasonable get. We all have different levels of comfort here.

I, also, use the Camco blue in-line filter which I change about every 3 months. I've found the combination of pressure regulator and filter do restrict my shower pressure, so normally I just rely on the filter to regulate my pressure. At campgrounds without water at the campsite, I attach it to my FW fill hose before filling my FW tank. I store it in the refer between fill-ups.
There are a couple of state parks where I camp/host that have either rust or sediment that makes my coffee pretty "cloudy". At those spots, I buy the 2.5 gal. drinking water jugs from Walmart or Meijer, and use that for drinking & coffee. This has worked well for me.

At Walmart you can also buy the hand pump that makes it real easy to use and they fit in the 2.5 gal. jugs.

Like others I use the blue Camco in-line before the trailer. I have no issues with pressure.

I purchased a house filter with a replaceable cartridge, installed hose adapter fittings in each end. I then made a simple base for it that allows me to just set the filter on the ground. Works great.

Don
+1 We do the same. Camco blue filter connected to 'city water' inlet.
The water down the Cape taste lousy to me, so even with the filter, we drink bottled water.

How are you connecting home water filters to the water hose? Is there a standard adapter available somewhere?

This is my 1 micron sediment filter for water inlet. Carbon filters become saturated much quicker than most would believe.

I use a 5 stage reverse osmosis system in the kitchen for cooking and drinking.
