We drink bottled water and use a Camco filter for everything else.

I always use a 2 stage external filter when ever hooked up to a campgrounds water supply.

I use a sediment filter in the 1st canister (i.e., closest to water supply) and then a carbon taste & order filter in the 2nd canister, which outputs to the trailer's water intake.

I change the filters based on number of day's camping.

Wow. As with most RV questions I tend to ask, the answer becomes more than I expected and often more costly as well !!!

And don't forget, adds weight and reduces overall Cargo Capacity.

Why the 2 filters ? I may be wrong, but doesn't the carbon filter have a smaller opening size, meaning that it would catch all the stuff that the first filter is catching ? Seems like a waste of a filter. I could understand if there was really heavy sediment, but for RV use seems like real overkill.

... and you probably noticed the wide variety of answers from members of the JOF with one thing in common.... all are alive to post their opinion.

My point is there are lots of us with differing opinions, but lots of times there is no right/wrong answer! Just pick the 'solution' that most agrees with YOUR thinking and your budget.

If you use a quality sediment filter, you will be removing 99% of the larger particles. Carbon is better for those elements that dissolve in water like chlorides, nitrates, nitrites, potassium, sulfates, ammonia, floride, and many heavy metals.

So no, the carbon filter will not be clogged if you use a fine sediment filter first.
