There is an ongoing problem of contamination of drinking water at RV parks. This is a problem that can happen at good and bad parks.
According to RV Life:
You wouldn’t take a sip out of your RV sewer hose, but connecting to some campground water supply lines could be just as disgusting – and dangerous to your health. Recent news headlines show that contaminated campground water is an ongoing problem around North America. Unfortunately you can’t smell it or taste one of the most frequent contaminants, E-coli bacteria. Campers lacking RV water filtration systems are playing Russian Roulette each time they connect to a water supply.
Generally speaking, I use my water filter when filling the fresh water tank and when hooked to a campground's fresh water spigot. I mainly use that water for washing and for toilet flushing. I bring along bottled water for drinking and coffee.
The photo above shows the water filter attached directly to the motorhome's intake. I have since started hooking it up directly to the spigot.
