What caught my eye here was a Doulton water filter for the RV. I was quite psyched!!!! These are high quality ceramic inserts, and at least the ones I use on my countertop (in addition to the Nikken Watefall to add good stuff back in), contain silver embedded within the ceramic piece. The ceramic makes it so it's cleanable with a regular scrubby, or other methods. The silver kills any little buggies, or critters, which are alive in the water (great when traveling where water quality is questionable).
So, picked up a whole kit set of components, even some things which makes life immensely easier when cleaning the filter (quick disconnects). The complete parts list:
- Standard housing
- Doulton filter element
- Standard filter element (bought at a different place)
- 2 sets of quick disconnects
- teflon tape (already had)
- 2 hoses (already had)
- Filter wrench (to remove housing, which can't find right now)

Items noticed with filtered water
Long story short, much much better!
Have noticed some positive benefits so far, though fairly early to identify them all.
The water heater, electric add-on I put in, more on that later, seems to heat up water about twice as fast. Am sure there will also be much less mineral buildup now.
Shower, when using on board water pump, has excellent pressure!
The water seems to be clearer now.
Easy to get water pressure back by cleaning filter (shown above).
No residue when washing dishes. Yes, even I have to wash them, pooey
@ 7 pm there is some sort of game. One night is Bingo, one night is something else scheduled, then the other 5 nights are whatever people want to play.
Am looking forward to going back there. On a bonus note, can barely get Sprint service there, 3G, but still decent. Only thing is have to get the puck above roof for best coverage. Am happy I brought a cane as tape it to there and hoist up somehow.
