Water Filtration?

Do you use a filter when filling the clean water tank? Do you have one on the hose or under the sink or both? If so, what kinds?
I'm trying to purchase some items now so I don't have a huge amount of things to purchase when i pick up the trailer.
Thanks in advance for your help

I use a Camco 40043-X TastePURE RV Water Filter with Flexible Hose Protector on the hose when connected or filling the tank anywhere outside of my house.

The accessories tab on the ETI website was useful to determine items that we may need to purchase.

Laurah, We do the same, and per this forum, we put the filter on the faucet side of the white hose to keep it clean too

I also use a Culligan water filter at the faucet to purify my drinking water. Culligan FM-15A Level 3 Faucet Filter

We use water from the tap for washing. Carry bottled water for all drinking or cooking.

I guess it depends where you camp, but we found throughout Oregon on our last trip, the water they supplied in the various campgrounds we were in was quite good. We do bring along a couple gallon jugs with filtered water from home, mostly for coffee and drinking straight up, then refill these jugs with water from camp if it is good, in case the next stop isn't.

I have heard lots of stories of not so good tasting drinking water, and imagine a filter would work good. We are considering using one when needed.
