  1. Ok, will do. Thank you for the suggestions!
  2. I might look into the whole house filter. I am planning to go by Camping World this weekend. Thanks!
  3. Oh that's easy enough. I can do that Thanks for the instructions!
  4. I definitely learned my lesson. I will start pouring water out, put some water in a cup to visually inspect it before putting anything in my tank again!
  5. It is supposed to be potable water. I did call the campground and let them know.
  6. I read online that 1/4 cup of bleach per 15 gallon of water is sufficient and my tank is 30, so I put a little more than a half cup earlier today. I am going to let it sit until tomorrow. Hopefully that's enough bleach.
  7. It was Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground, site #48. I did call them (didn't have time to speak in person before I left), and they said they were going to look at it and fix the problem.
  8. 1) My set up is: Facet --> pressure regulator (where worms were) --> hose --> Walmart filter --> tank I guess I need to disinfect or buy a new hose too? It's brand new so I would like to keep it, but I don't know what the best way (least messy way) to do that. The pressure regulator is very small that I can just soak it in bleach water. 2) No, I do not have a whole house filter. I just use the Walmart filter. I'm currently traveling east on I-40 and am in the middle of nowhere in Texas. I work online in the afternoon, so I can't travel long distance except for the weekends. I think I can be in Oklahoma City tomorrow, though. I may stay in a city RV park for a night or two there. I personally like more rustic campgrounds outside of cities (thus this water problem!). I think there is Camping World in Oklahoma City too. After this incident, I will definitely invest in a better water filter even though I don't drink out of the tank. If I connect the water directly to the city water hookup, will it be safe to use while I'm disinfecting the tank? It bypasses the tank completely, correct? Thanks again!
  9. Hello, this is my 2nd week of owning an RV (I bought it in AZ and am on my way back to the east coast). I might have made a big mistake this morning and contaminated my water tank. I filled up my water tank at a campground in Santa Fe this morning. I use a basic water filter I bought at Walmart (blue one that attaches to the hose). I ran the water for a few seconds and filled it up. When I removed the hose from the faucet, there were bunch of small worms on the mesh filter of the pressure regulator. They looked like tiny earthworms (but probably not). Gross! The worms were big enough that they were caught in the mesh filter. Since the water is also filtered, I hope that none of them are actually in the tank. But how about parasites, small eggs and such? I was in a hurry and wasn't at a full hookup site, so I am traveling with the water right now. I don't drink the water from the tank but I wash dishes with it. But I am boiling water to do my dishes for now. Has anyone run into something like this before? I read posts about disinfecting the tank with chlorine but many campsites say that they are on septic system and ask not to pour chemicals in their sewer. So what should I do? Thank you!
  10. Yes I bought a 2017 Pleasure Way Lexor, but not the one I was asking about. I ended up buying one in AZ.
  11. I am happy to report that I had wonderful experience with Best Time RV in Las Vegas. I rented a RoadTrek Zion from them for 2 weeks. Traveling in the camper van was exactly how I imagined it would be and the size was perfect for me. I knew I was ready to buy a camper van after the first night. And I am now a proud owner of a Pleasure Way Lexor! Thanks everyone for great advices. I'm sure I'll be posting more questions!
  12. Al, thank you for the detailed instructions! (And I'm sorry I didn't reply sooner)
  13. Thanks for the suggestions, SWharton and Kirk!
  14. Thanks all for the great suggestions! In the end, I did make a reservation with Best Time RV in Las Vegas. I'll be in the Las Vegas area for 2 weeks. Now I need a recommendation on which campsite I should go to experience my first night in an RV I will report back the renting experience with the company next week.
