I live in CA and am considering buying a water softener for our RV. Trying to keep the hard water spots off of everything inside and hope that it will keep mineral deposits from forming in the plumbing.

Does anybody have any experience with them? The units that I've seen seem kinda' bulky.

If they are like ones in homes then they would take up a lot of space. Do you have that much trouble with hard water? We have only found this in couple places in west side of Wyoming. Some parks in Wyoming have salt and all types of minerals in water. Minerals runs from 0 to 3.5 on the hardness scale. We check water or ask about this problem in bad places and if water is not to good we run off our tank and move on next day.

"Trouble" may not be the right word. I just know what it does to our home fixtures after time. That's copper piping and not the pvc that's in the MH.

But yeah. The water here in So. Cal. is very hard.

I've seen them at Camping World.

They're not too bad size-wise. About the size of a large fire extinguisher.
