On a recent trip we had to use the on-board water a few times rather than city water. At the last stop we did this, the water came out cloudy with a white tinge. My husband (a newbie camper) refused to use the onboard water any more. I thought it might be calcium carbonate that had been stirred up by moving and/or by the action of the pump. The water did not have a bad smell, just this tinge.
Can anyone suggest other explanations and recommend some treatments? Also, do others put bleach or other antibacterials into the onboard tank when refilling it? How about extra filters, etc.? I saw a filter at Camping World for use between the city water supply and the rig connection. Is this a good, bad or indifferent idea?
