yes travel with full tanks. as water quality will be different everywhere you go.

but if "this" trip will be well over say 1 K miles and you know you can get good water there, then yes to less in the tank.
but then i also carry bottled water, for my drinking needs.
and even at home run water into your rv through a higher grade filter.

Saw the tank insulation at national rally and they are well built and certainly well installed. Most of us were surprised what the tanks looked like. Good surprise. I carry 1/3 unless I'm going boondocking then it's full.

We boondock exclusively - we haul empty until we get as close as we can to where we are going to camp, and get potable water. Our current trailer (not a Monty) holds 174 gallons of fresh water, we don't haul that any farther than we have to!!

WOW, that's a lot of water. We can go 9 or so days on 66 gallon. You must have a toy hauler?
