    Our new 5th wheel had no water filtration system as some newer models do so I wanted to add one. I also wanted to enclose the open side of the wet bay.

    Here is what they look like when they come from the manufacturer.

    I found a filter on Amazon that had decent reviews. I was going to go for the Clearsource system Ray has reviewed and uses but the dimensions didn't work out for the space I had.

    I used some sheet aluminum that already had a nice white finish I found on Amazon Here

    Using aluminum angle from the hardware store for framing and some redwood to space the filter out to meet the water inlet on the Nautilus water system allowed a direct connection to the rv water hose inlet.

    The filter elements can be swapped easily in place. Overall I am pleased with the result. I may still add a better filter under the kitchen sink for drinking but this is a big upgrade to those blue inline Camco filters we have been using for years.

    Nice clean set up. Will you be adding a 90 degree fitting so the water hose will hang straight down?

    Thanks!

    Yes, here is the complete set up with 90, pressure reducer, water meter and dust plug. The door shuts with a small gap. We also mounted some hand sanitizer and a small bin to store disposable gloves after dumping.

    That completes it. The only thing extra I have on our setup is a hose grip. It makes it easier to hook up.

    That’s a great set up. Water neater is a good feature. I have one to know how much a put into the tanks when traveling. Next trip I may leave it on the city line to see how mush we use. I would like to build something like this but can’t put rioters in the wet bay. They will have to be in the main storage area. Thanks for the ideas. Happy Camping

    Thanks, I ordered a second meter that will attach to the black flush. This will let me fill the black tank without worrying I will overflow it while I am dumping.

    that is a great idea. I could have used that on our last trip. ( don’t ask). A blue tooth meter would be great.

    Found this on Amazon. May be a little over kill.

    That is certainly fancy and I won't ask about your episode :scream:

    The one on Rays amazon store is unavailable so I went with this which looks like the same thing and matches my fresh water meter. It looks like it may be hard to read up against the wall. I saw a post where someone added some fittings to turn it around. I will update with my results. It should be here soon.
