Water filter By-pass

For those still waiting to pick up their new 29ME... Check the location of the water filter. On the 2015 it is in such a horrendous location there is no chance I would ever use it and when you winterize it holds over a litre of anti-freeze. It is behind a false wall buried deep inside the basement. You have to remove eight screws and crawl inside the cupboard to access it.

According to the owners manual your rig should ship with a by-pass hose... Mine did not so the dealer made one for me. Have them install it before you take possession so that you never have to look at it again!!!

We had our dealer permanently remove ours and we will use a stand-alone filter outside the rig

My setup has valves that you can fiddle with to bypass the filter. No hose required.

We also added a bead of silicone around the bottom of this because we noticed any leaks would travel into the back compartment

This is on the back side of the cable connection in the power cord compartment , if not careful it'll bite you and will probably work on the cord to overtime

Scratch that. They aren't bypass valves in my rig. Learned that the hard way trying to dewinterize and couldn't get water running for 40 minutes. The dealership was wrong.

I wondered about that.... Mine had shut off valves but not bypass.... Thought maybe yours had come off the line later then mine with some improved features... If you look in the manual you will see a bypass hose was supposed to be included, so have them either get you one or make it for you.

Happy To Be Here!

Just got my 2016 29 ME and couldn't be happier. I believe I made a great choice! Seems like a very friendly group here. I'm sure I'll have lot's of questions as I am new to RV'ing. 20+ years on the water!

Welcome to the Show 0and2... With that beautiful looking rig you by-passes the minor leagues and came straight to the Majors!

Thanks Griswald! I've logged a few innings in my career!! And after a pretty exhaustive search for our first RV, I too felt that the Jayco took us straight to the "Bigs"!!
