My filter in the 31FK is in a similar compartment but at least it is near the access panel and not way back inside the compartment. To make it easier to get to, I replaced the screws with Velcro and added grab handles.

The filter housing was also wrapped with flexible electrical conduit making it nigh on impossible to unscrew. Our dealer relocated that wiring as a warranty fix which I much appreciated.

And Jayco also left several large holes for piping, wiring and hoses throughout my Greyhawk. Open the wooden panel beneath your bed and look into the electrical component compartment. I expect you'll see the ground through the holes. I filled all I could find with spray foam insulation to stop drafts and keep out mice.

Thanks NCR... That area is actually the under bed compartment on the ME so it seems Jayco is fairly consistent in thier lack of effort in that area. That was one of three holes in that space, none of them were properly filled but that was the biggest of them. I dumped almost an entire can of rodent resistant expanding foam into the holes to fill them up. I had to build the big hole up one layer at a time to fill it.

Here is what was under my bed in the corner you can see the white wire with exposed wiring. I was pissed when i took the cover off and saw that. Luckily it was only a extra ground wire. But it is a complete mess under their. Anyway back to the filter i winterized mine by blowing the lines out with compressed air then adding antifreeze. It was seasy to do and that way you dont have to worry about water in the filter housing.

Additional smoke detector

Given all the electrical devices and wiring in the compartment beneath our bed, I installed a battery powered smoke detector in there. If something did smolder while sleeping, you could be in serious trouble long before the smoke alarm in the forward kitchen in our FK sounded off.

When I un-winterize the Greyhawk, I also change the smoke detector battery to prevent those 3 AM low-battery chirps.

Replaced the under galley sink impossible to reach without 4' arms water filter with the bypass hose. We only use the blue camco filter attached to campground faucet. So easy to replace!

I'd love to know where this mystical bypass hose is. I don't have one (unless its hidden away somewhere I've yet to look). I wonder if its IN the canister that houses the filter .....

My bypass hose came in a bucket with other stuff. I wondered what it was for until I went to winterize just last December. Couldn't reach it so filled it with pink antifreeze. Then in Spring removed the bank of drawers and spent an hour on my back, cussing Jayco, but got it done, for good.

Fortunately the filter in the MV is under the lav sink. I winterize with air so it's just a matter of removing the canister and emptying the water out. It's a bit more of a bother getting to the water pump filter to empty it.
