RO in a Gemini

Anyone have experience finding a reverse osmosis unit that will work in a Gemini/Compass?
Seems one would take care of some of the nasty tasting water in some campgrounds.

Look at the nine stage units on ebay and Amazon.
They have their own water pressure booster pump, uv lamp, and remineralizer.
You can run the cast-off water right back into your freshwater tank.

We love ours.
I don't think model of rv has a thing to do with ro or not.

Since Bob brought up the subject, and since no one cares to help the OP past what's already been offered, a slightly related hijack is in order.

Those silly looking breathing egg looking things you pour wine through to aerate it?
Try it on scotch.
I don't know that it exactly enhances the flavor but it sure changes it.
Its a fun party trick.

How this relates:
I have often wondered about running scotch through an ro unit....

The aeration allows the alcohol to get to the party quicker...
Back during the years that I was serving out my Collegiate Sentence: we used to sprint back to the dorms (from the Pub), and chug a beer...
The results were pretty typical of what stupid College Kids would do...

Do you have a whole house filter on your camper? You can install one if not. Also, they make portable, screw on filters you can use right at the spigot. I use both the portable and the house unit. I'm very careful about hooking to water sources I don't know. I travel with a near full tank and never hook up to a CG that has a well. If it's municipal water...OK...but still, we don't drink it...we drink and cook with bottled water. I will wash dishes and rinse with it but it's already been through the water heater at that point. Always smell and taste a little of the water before you hook up.

Iíve not thought about the subject before so I googled it and found this link, among others.

If you follow through with the project, please post back how you did it and your experience.

I carry mine in a tote and simply fill the fresh water tank putting the reject on the ground if grass is present or down the sewer

Do not put the reject/concentrate in your fresh water tank unless you want to scale up your water system
