Potable water questions
My wife & I purchased a 1977 Overlander in 2018. We are very happy withit, we have done some restoration (mostly cosmetic, it is in quite good condition).
We used it frequently last year, but we always "glamped" with full hook up sites.
We have just joined WBCCI and we will be attending our 1st Airstream Rally in May. We will be dry-camping for the very first time. I have studied the manual closely. I was just examining the potable water system and I found that the potable water filter cannister under the sink is missing! The mount & filter head is there, the valve is in the off position, the water pump is operational.
We only use bottled water when we cook of make coffee. We only use "city water" for bathing & washing dishes. We plan to do the same with the potable water supply. From what I could see, the potable water filter line only supplies the drinking water faucet at the kitchen sink. I have two questions:
1) If the valve to the water filter is in the off position, will the water pump still be able to supply the needed water to the bathroom & kitchen? (I think so).
2) If The filter is absolutely necessary, where could I obtain a replacement cannister?
Thank you for your help!
