Hello all! We are back in the RV Community after 15 years or so. Please consider us newbies. We just bought a 2018 K-Z Connect 251RK and are looking forward to our first trip!

Question: All the videos and articles I have seen say to hook my pressure regulator and water filter up at the supply. The pressure regulator is fine but it seems to me that it would be better to hook up the water filter at the camper. The water will at times sit in the hose for hours when it is not being used. Wouldn't you want to filter that water? Am I missing something? Thanks!

That water sitting in the hose would have already been filtered. If you are using a drinking water safe hose, the hose should not add anything that needs filtered out.
You could do a 2 filter system with a sediment filter pre-hose and a charcoal/taste filter after if that is what you are going for.

Anything the hose leaches into the water will not be caught in the filter anyway. Should have no issues with a potable water rated hose.

It's no different than the water sitting in all that PEX water line in your RV.

I put everything near the camper. That way I’m more likely to look at it occasionally. If using the non metered flow regulator, that might be placed on the supply faucet.

I rather not have the extra weight hanging off the TT. I put both on the campsite spigot. Along with a wye.

Thanks! I did buy the Zero G water hose, so I am sure it will be fine. I was thinking about drinking from a water hose when I was a kid and the plastic taste it had. Maybe that's why I have seemed to have lost a few brain cells!

I got the zero g last year and like it a lot. Put my old hose is in the camper in case i need extra length. The zero g is pretty nice, lightweight and so far is better for me, take up less space. I liked it so much a bought an expandable ( i know there diffrent) for the black tank clean out and to use around the campsite.

I want the weight of the water filter on the water faucet not on the plastic connector on the side of the RV.
