Best Standard Canister Water Filter refills

Reaching out to those with experience.

Having purchased our new Greyhawk 29MV coach, it came from the Jayco factory already winterized. The water filter was removed, so I have no idea what it should look like.

I can only imagine the dealer left it winterized because there was still a potential for freezing temps back in the first week of February.

What is the best replacement water filter for what looks to be a standard water filter canister....???

There should be a new one somewhere in your coach.

Here is great source for water filters and good spec information on each.

Personally, I'd recommend an external water filter that you can hook up the the hose. You can use the filter to fill you tank if boondocking or through your city water connection.

You can use the Camco rv filter, or you can go to a hardware store buy a small whole house filter, and buy the type replacement filter you want. If you go that option you can buy filter cartridges fairly cheaply and in any town. You do have to buy adaptors from pipe to hose fittings. You initial cost may be a bit greater.

That water filtration canister looks a lot like the one under the lavatory in the bathroom of my 29MV coach, but then, they probably all have some resemblance.

This is the one I bought. Standard 10 inch with a 1 micron sediment filter. Will be using a reverse osmosis system for drinking and cooking water.

The filter is industrial grade and can be reused after flushing.

Jayco has moved to the "whole house" type canister from the inline of previous years. Mine has this new type as well. You just need to get the right length 10" media to fit the canister and select the level of purity you want. Big box or HW stores will have them too.

Think I put the wrong link up this AM. Here is where I bought my pressure regulator.

I put an F1pb in my unit last year.

Besides the trailer's whole hose filter I also use a 2 stage external water filter.

I get my water filters from Walmart - sediment and task & Oder filters.
