A basic water filter system will at least make your water safe from the various bacteria’s and other microscopic living creatures found in most water supplies.

The Reverse Osmosis System needs to be installed under the kitchen sink or in a compartment with a dedicated faucet installed at the kitchen sink. The RO System will produce clean water for drinking and cooking, it might be the best solution.
A Water Softener has its advantages because it services the entire RV and not just one faucet. It will keep the entire plumbing system free from minerals that cause damage and eliminate hard water and the problems it creates. Your showers will feel better and if you have a washing machine your clothes will be cleaner.
