Question Milky looking water

Hi all,
Ok here is the problem.
2019 3021RL.
All was good until I got here to Camp in Montana.
I started getting air in the cold and hot water lines..
When you flush the toilet in the morning
looks like milk. If you fill a glass jar with water from kitchen sink
or Bathroom its a bit cloudy. It turns clear in a few seconds.
Driving me nuts.
Any ideas?
Steve

I'd guess its air
If you fill a clear glass with water does it clear pretty quick? Like bubbles?
Do you have a leak where the pump is pulling air into the system?

At the toilet; that will typically foam a bit (like air); but the faucets shouldn't.

I had a cheap water hose that would do that. If water sat in it for a period of time, it came out milky, then cleared up. And a little foamy. I got rid of that thing. Just a thought.

Are you using fresh water from your tank or hooked up to external water?

Likely air or ozone infused in the water since it clears rapidly. Sometimes happens if they have been working on the public water lines and will clear after lines have flushed well.

Ok
It is tiny air bubbles. I am hooked up to well water here in Montana.
I have no leakes. Pressurized system and left over night with water pump on.
I will investigate possible permitted water hose. Going to switch to expandable 50 footer.
its baffling
never a dull moment.
