I sanitize the tank as prescribed but I take along a portable water distiller for drinking water.

You can buy test kits on Amazon for evaluating the purity of RV fresh water. The kit contains test tubes filled with a red nutrient solution. Put 1ml of RV water in the test tube and wait a few days. If the nutrient solution turns yellow, you have colliform or eccoli or some other bacteria in the water. Using this process you will know when the water is ok. Also, if you shock your fresh water system (including water lines), make sure all the chlorine is gone before testing otherwise you may get false negatives because residual chlorine is still strong enough to kill the bacteria.
