Drinking Water
#11
Someone, somewhere, warned against using the water at dump sites because (I think) it was really supposed to be used for flushing the tanks or something. I would hope that if they do provide drinking water, that it is clearly marked either way.

I've also seen drinking fountains at rest areas with a tap down low that you could screw a hose to.

Oh! I almost forgot, for people who didn't realize... Do you remember as a kid that we all drank out of the hose when we were thirsty? But now they warn not the do that. I had to put a new nozzle on a garden hose, and discovered the reason why: the hoses are now lined with fabric. Fabric to get moldy, fabric to absorb bug pee, etc. You can still have to pay $40 for a halfway decent garden hose, but it's still a coil of garbage. I am assuming that the RV hoses for water tanks aren't like this. Think? I've never cut one open to see.

Yup, it's amazing how many things we survived through just fine, that are supposedly soooo.... bad.

Guess us old folks were hardier than the young-uns these days...  hehe

Have you noticed how much of the 'information' passed out now is based on fear?

And how many "You've been doing it all wrong" ones?

By the time I arrived at La Posa, I was purchasing the kiosk water. When I first arrived in Quartzsite I stayed in an RV campground behind Silly Al's, until I could have the awnings installed and my brakes repaired. That water was very salty and the blue filtration canister didn't change the taste much. Good to know La Posa has free drinking water that isn't salty. I'll try it this year when I arrive.

The La Posa water is not that good for drinking. I would not even give it to the pets. 

The hose found at dump stations is usually non potable water. Drink at your own risk of getting dead. Potable water sources are marked. This is reality. Read the signs and believe.

HandyDan, stop giving out bad advice.

Humm...I thought Cammula said she filtered it...Well thank you for clearing that misconception up. lol I'm still interested in one of the Zero H2O water filters.

The campground video is now public. Again thank you and Cammula for inviting and allowing me to stay.

We did filter the water, but bought drinking water as well.
