My Outback wasn't like that. I could carry a full load.

Maybe they improved over the years, IDK. Maybe Keystone Tail Gator was a shitty brand, IDK. I can tell you it was one of the first things I checked on our current camper & was glad to see it had actual angle iron supports. Also, not sure how much you guys know about water. I learned quite a bit while in the US Army & in my lifetime. Water filters are NOT water purifiers. 2 totally different things. 99% of Water filters do not filter out bacteria & virus's (which is what makes you sick). Most just filter out sediment, minerals & bad taste. 20-25 microns is the norm for particle size filters. I use a 5 micron sediment & a carbon filter for taste in my whole house water filters. It does affect water pressure. It helps keep the washing machine, dishwasher, shower head, faucets & ice maker from plugging up when they flush the hydrants & keeps the chlorine taste from being bad. To get to remove bacteria & virus's, you really need a 0.2 micron filter. Not practical at all in a whole house or camper system. Water pressure would be almost nil.

The Pro's: They are portable, work on gravity, work with tap water, work with pond water, work with river water. They are purifiers.

The con's are: they take up counter space, cost more initially.....yet are cheaper long term. IMHO, the cross contamination issue addressed in the vid can be solved with a clean garbage bag & some vacuum line caps on the filter discharge nipples, like these https://www.summitracing.com/parts/trd- ... gJ9CfD_BwE .

Just putting this stuff out there for everyone to know. No one wants to get sick while enjoying the great outdoors. Algae & bacteria can also grow inside fresh water tanks & pipes of RV 's. We never drink the water from the camper, just do dishes with it. I also sanitize the system every spring with plain old bleach. No scents or dyes or concentrated formulas. Plain old bleach & water.

:cheers:

Yup! We got a Outdoors RV 27bhs. The finance guy is actually a member on here and has a 06 PW. I added on board air, Airlift 5000s and daystar cradles.

He didn't give me the details. Now that I think of it he may have had an 05. It was darker silver.
