    I can't directly answer your question but, over on the right is a link to the Nature Pure ones and there are detailed install instructions and frankly it looks pretty easy realy and one thing I like is they are American, so RV fitting looks straight forward. Apprently they are at Malvern so we are planning to go and see them as like you we fancy fitting one, just for piece of mind.

    If you search on youtube there is a Yank video of an RV install too.

    Nature Pure are the best. Took me 10 mins to fit mine and that included drilling the hole for the tap. Should have bought one years ago, drinks taste much better.:thumb:

    very easy to fit and as you have an RV you wont need the pipe adaptors.

    simply decide where where the tap going to be, drill a suitable hole and fit the tap, make sure theres room for the filter canister close by, and cut the cold feed to the mixer tap.
    connect the T piece (push fit if i remember correctly) in the cut pipe and connect all other pipes.

    turn on pump, bleed water through the tap and check for leaks with the tap off.

    be sure to find an easily accessible place for the canister....the top part can be very stiff/difficult to remove to access the filter element.

    edit....the T piece is a barbed nylon fitting which pushs INSIDE the water pipe and isnt suitable for hard plastic pipe so you will need an american sized hep2o type T piece....ie. pushs OVER the pipe.
