It's sort of funny sometimes it can be a real pain trying to find something you need to service or use on a camper... In forethought when I bought the new tt I thought through all the mechanicals in advance and ask where everything was located before I left the dealership. A couple of the things I ask about none of the service people had the answer to. Thank goodness for forums with people that have gone through the search and found the answers.

Yes that is where mine is. Looks like it was the fastest place to put it but what a pain in the A*&.....

So is mine. What a joke. The piping and electrical was so wrapped around it It was almost imposable to use the supplied wrench. Had to move the electrical, and re-pipe some of the water lines to make it accessible. Some major PPE here. Not "Proper Preventative Maintenance, but definitely " Piss Poor Engineering".

I opened up that access panel (in the rear luggage area) yesterday and in the 2011 31DS it is not there. I found it up underneath the galley sink. Ours is a smaller in-line filter as opposed to a vertical cartridge style unit.

In our 2011 DS it's in the galley, under sink. We also connect a filter on our water connection, double filtered.

Jayco engineers/technical writers should be reprimanded for not blatantly displaying this location in the owners manual. My goodness I cant believe that owners have to rely on each others help on this blog to perform routine maintenance. The owners manuals are painfully generic, as much as you pay for these RV's they should provide comprehensive manuals, shame on them. Thank you folks for providing this great info, including the pictures.

The design is the way it is and that rear compartment requires you to use a left-handed upside down wrench just to get the darn thing out!

After taking a good look at the galley cabinet filter if I have to replace it I'll use just a piece of tubing and simply rely on my easy to replace in-line at the source filter. Dreading having to remove the galley filter a true pita.
