OMG! I'm sure it has not been changed in 28y!

How's a good way to move this? Add a 90 and some more lines...?

It was that one kid who was afraid to drink water out of a garden hose and is still scared of their RV tank.
Yes that person exists.

You might want to ask who put the polybutylene supply lines here. That's some bad stuff and 28 years ago was the "pipe of the future" until it wasn't. Hope it was not used with high chlorine concentrations for extended periods of time.

Being that you are not the orig owner, it might serve you best to use bottled water for drinking. At least start your trip that way and refill your water bottles from a safe source as you go.

I'd be willing to bet that the manufacturer "put those lines there".[emoticon]

Still can't understand why people are afraid of drinking water from their RV, regardless of what type of piping material was used. My last 2 RVs used the grey lines; we purchased the rigs used, flushed the system once when we bought, and then used them for 10-12 years each (yes, even "DRINKING" the water, OMG!). There is no danger from those grey lines other than they could become brittle over time depending on the water quality and develop leaks.

The undersink filter that is there, on the other hand, I would remove since you have no idea of how long it's been there.

I guess people have different sensitivity to certain bacteria’s than others.
My daughter is a food microbiologist and dw is a nurse , both bacteria minded and know more about this stuff than me. They were explaining the whole thing to me and were making me sick just listening to them.
Two against one. Easier not to argue. Even easier to crack open a Poland Spring and make the coffee. Makes my fishing experience less stressful.

Sometimes a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

You would think that a microbiologist and nurse would understand that boiling water for coffee will kill pretty much all the bacteria...it might be worth using bottled water to keep the peace but there is no scientific basis.

I believe most of the sensitivity is a reverse placebo effect. They believe it's harmful, so their body reacts as if it is harmful.

To the original question: Change the filter or eliminate it and move on. If it really makes you feel better treat the water system with some diluted chlorine bleach.
