2019 AS GT plastic Water Taste

We have a 2019 AS GT purchased new and after almost three years, many nights of camping and what I suspect is thousands of gallons of water, the fresh water still tastes like plastic. We have tried different hoses, different filters and sanitizing the water system many times. We currently only drink bottled water due to the taste. I am out of ideas, any suggestions?

Is this out of the tank or coming in from the outside connection?

If coming from the tank, try adding baking soda to the tank, allowing to stand overnight, then flush at least twice.

If from the outside connection, then it's likely the municipality, and short of filtering the water with a taste and odor cartridge, there's not a lot you can do.

We carry and use a Brita pitcher for this very reason. Found out the hard way that filtering the chlorine out of the incoming water can lead to 'stuff' growing in the pipes...
