This post includes some water tank products that are good quality, highly rated, and highly recommended to buy for Airstream’ers and RV’ers alike. Specifically, some of these items will help you complete some pretty nasty tank tasks and the other items will help you get clean water into your water tank and keep it all fresh.
An Unnecessary Necessity
We saw the exterior shower on Amazon a few weeks earlier and thought it was a cool idea so we added it to our Airstream’n Wishlist, thinking that it was something we might buy much later if we thought we would use it. A week later Nick brought it up and explained that it would be much more difficult to add the exterior shower in at a later date, specifically after the walls went back in as plumbing to the fresh water tank and cutting out a spot on the outside would be a huge task. It is much easier to change the plumbing and cutout now while everything was taken apart and open to work on and place correctly.
So we went for it and picked the black as it matches the other add-ons we’ve picked up. Maybe not a necessity but we see its usefulness and the upfront cost is not a huge hit financially.
I researched many products and decided to go with the Camco Drinking Water Hose and the Camco Taste Pure Water Filter. Yes, you are pumping clean water into your fresh water tank but adding a simple filter at the intake point is always a good idea. We are also going to be further filtering our drinking water at the output (kitchen faucet or a separate little dispenser mounted next to the sink). We’ll post more on that later when we’ve figured out the best course of action on that topic.
Sewer Kit +
This is an obvious necessity but from all my research on the pumping and cleaning process, the sewer hose kit, sidewinder support, and bio-pack water tank deodorizer drop-ins are a great team of products to get the nasty job done in a snap. Another funny little item to get that we had gifted to us as a going away gift is this cool Sewiepig.
