I installed the Hydro-Life Undercounter Filter Kit on my X23B last night. This was clearly something I should have had done as a condition of sale. It was a totally uncomfortable experience to remove the original NPT hose and to install the quick connects.
However, once you get past the initial unpleasantness, the quick connect aspect of this system makes it easy to install the filter and to replace for winterization. Once we tasted the water, we knew it was worth the trouble.
We had been set up with just an external inline filter; but, we wanted to add the undercounter filter to filter any unpleasant odors or tastes from the plumbing which we do annually sanitize.
I am still thinking about velcroing a spacer between the wall and the filter for the install of the filter bracket to keep the assembly stable in place.

After looking at the pics, it would have been nice if Jayco had made the cut out for the access to the short pipe bigger or the supply pipe from the bottom longer to make the process less complicated considering how contorted one's body will be when tackling this project.
Well, it is no more bottled water for us and the Sodastream soda tastes even better now.
