PREPPERS - Filtering water from a stream

I have a 155 gallon fresh water tank in my skoolie. I have several filters -
  • iSpring WSP-50
  • iSpring WSP-100
  • Twinkle Star Sediment Filter with 100 Mesh and 40 Mesh Screen
  • Clearsource Premier RV Water Filter System - Protects Against Contaminants & Bacteria
  • HQUA-OWS-12 Ultraviolet Water Purifier Sterilizer Filter12GPM

If I were just using city water I would put the ]Twinkle Star Sediment Filter before the fresh water tank and the other filters & UV light after the tank (and before the pump).

If I want to be able to live totally off the grid/SHTF plan I would like to be able to replenish water from a running stream, etc. Should I use this same filter configuration or move the UV filter to the inlet side of the tank?

i would use a UV filter before and after the tank and extra different micron filters on both sides.

I have a spin down that goes to a three stage which then goes through a big UV and into the tank. I also have a secondary UV at the drinking water faucet .
