Yeah lots of people drink trailer water. I use it for cooking, and coffee.
It's just that there are lots of ways for water to get contaminated, and then sit in a tank for days on end. A few fairgrounds that I go to have signs saying NOT to drink the water.
I saw a guy rubbing the end of the water supply hose on his head while he showered himself. I've seen people wash their hands then drop the hose on the ground where horses have been. And who knows what mold or mildew is in your tank a month into the camping season.
