Question Water filters

Just wounder what everyone is using? As I want to always have spares of everything with me, just in case.
Mine from the factory came with a CMax #maxetw-975

Or I am also looking into a Culligan SCWH-5

Thanks for your feedback.

rynosback, I have an external dual filter setup on our trailer and buy the filter replacements at Lowes (Home Depot also carries them). They come in a two pack so I always have spares. These are 10" filters and I bought the filter setup from The RV Water Filter Store. Also bought our Watts pressure regulator from them. Hope this helps.

Shop Whirlpool Whole House Replacement Filter at Lowes.com

Internal coach filter has been a 5 micron carbon block filter. I've bought at Home Depot, Lowe's and Amazon.

Now using an external triple filter system from Water Filter Store that has a sediment filter, a carbon block filter and a BIRM filter for heavy iron in the water in Michigan. These filters are .5 micron and 1 micron filters and adversely effect water pressure so I'll probably go back to 5 micron filters on re-order.

I know what you mean. I even used to like bills in hand. But going full time has turned me into a digital man.
