Mine was made in April 2014. How can it be a 2015? (That's what the paperwork says)

Model years don't correspond with manufacture dates. My old 2006 Springdale was a 2007 model but sold and titled as a 2006.

Auto makers have in the past traditionally started selling the next years model in Sept of the current year as the next years model...did I put that correctly?.
And any company producing anything now can claim it as the next model year as soon as one second past midnight on January 1st. It's a sales gimmick.

At that concentration one can just barely detect the lemon juice, but it is there. I don't even notice it all now, but my dog sure does! Like I said before, the dog won't drink it. We usually carry gallon jugs of drinking water to drink and make coffee with anyway, but sometimes I drink right from the tap and have never had a funky water problem. I don't see any reason why one couldn't try less and then increase the amount until it is barely detectable. I started with 1 pint/40 gallons that my dealer recommended on my old camper and it was fine. :-)

LOL! Yeah, but it SEEMS like a lot. I'm used to seeing it in the little yellow bulbs at the grocery store, and those last me..... Well, I don't think I've ever finished one! I just find them in the back of my fridge, and since I can't remember when I bought it, I figure it's probably too old!

Seriously though, thanks for the pointer. We use a 5G water cooler jug, but it would be nice to just pour it from the tap on occasion...

Yeah, Sept for cars and Oct for boats. But to call a trailer made in April of 14 a 15 just seems odd to me.

I'm new to this and I didn't realize it was a bad idea to drink the water from. The campsite hose. The dealer just sort of mentioned it as a by the way as i was leaving.

I drink from mine. I am never going to pay for bottled water when it is right in my tap.

I use the campsite water for drinking. You should use a white drinking water hose, not a garden hose. Don't forget a pressure regulator. I also use my fresh water tank when needed for drinking as well. Key there is keep it properly maintained.
