Good Life RV: RV water hookups tips and tricks

From the bloggers at Good Life RV.

You can only live three days without it. All living things need it. And it’s one of the many luxuries that sets RV camping apart from tent camping. That’s right, we’re talking about running water. Here is our guide that provides you everything you need to know about getting the water flowing in your rig.

Quality matters

When you’re traveling from campsite to campsite, the quality of water will change depending on your location. To ensure your water quality, we recommend taking a few steps to filter your water so that it is always at the same high quality. You can easily install Brita filters on the kitchen sink, or buy a pourable filter that fits in your RVs fridge. On top of these filters, it’s always a good idea to use a carbon filter on the hose hookup to the city water.

Get it flowing

Many campgrounds have fresh water hookups at each site. To prevent RV pipes from bursting, it’s a good idea to use a pressure regulator to control the water pressure coming out of the ground. Then, simply take your hose and plug it into the city water hookup on your RV. Always use a certified potable water hose. You can easily keep your hoses organized by noting that the certified water hose is white in color. A simple garden hose will not work when you are hooking up to water.
