If the RV is parked in a campground that has chlorinated city water, and the RV has a bacteriostatic cartridge in the line, and the RV is left for a month with the water on but not in use, does the cartridge have to be replaced upon returning? Will algae/mold or whatever grow in the water lines or in the cartridge? Should the system be purified with clorox each time I return?
In my personal opinion I would suggest that you disconnect the RV from city water completely if you plan to be gone more than a couple of days. It does not take that long to disconnect and connect the city water to an RV and that way you do not have to worry about anything that might happen to the city water connection or the water it provides while you are gone.
I hope this helps.
