In order to be supplied with enough water, we have two tanks. Inside the car we have a 40-litre fresh water tank, from which a Shurflo water pump transports the water to the sink. This water is first filtered by a carbon filter and then sterilised by using a ceramic filter. In addition, we have installed a water plug where we can connect a hose, so there is fresh water available outside the car. The filtered water we drink, we use for cooking or for brushing our teeth. The sewage leads directly outside the car to the ground. The front bumper simultaneously is the second water tank. Another 40 litres can be transported in it. However, this water does not flow through a filter, why we only need it for showering, washing dishes or briefly cleaning our hands.
P.S. We don't have warm water or a toilet installed by the way.
