This is on the Accessories tab for the 21'. I'm betting it's on the other size trailer lists too:

water filter

On my 21 and I believe on my 19 I cut the cold water line under the kitchen sink and installed a filter from Ace Hardware. That gives a better glass of water and a better cup of coffee.
Now, this morning it's time to start flushing the fresh system to flush out all of the clorox taste and smell. I didn't flush the system well enough years ago and Nancy did not enjoy the smell after her shower and washing her hair, it was just a party we were going to attend.

We use those for any water going into the freshwater tank and then a Pur pitcher/filter for drinking water. Water is very clean tasting then.

Lindy and I are low brow. We just use the 90 day water filter and drink whatever the locals drink We also drink the water straight from the fresh water tank. So far, we haven't had any problems or ever gotten ill.

I did get a couple of rubber caps for the fresh water hose at Camping World. Just to keep dirt etc. out of the hose end. But think of all the times I drank from the end of a garden hose when I was a kid!

Helps to screw the two ends of the hose together for storage.

at the time I got them, I was more worried about the mud at the campgrounds when we un-couple. but you are right, we could just screw them together and I hadn't thought of that.
