In Line Water Filter

Good Day All,

I finally have my rig home from the dealer for a few days... They are still waiting on a new kitchen counter for me

I am trying to find my way around and cannot for the life of me find the in line water filter. Does anyone know where it is on the 29ME, The manuals are horrible for this.

My plan is to bypass the filter as we bring bottle water for drinking and I don't want to end up filling a 1/2 gallion container full of pink stuff when I winterize.

Thanks in advance!

Have you looked under the kitchen sink and in the utility compartment. On the Seneca it is located same compartment as the water/ sewer connections.

Carpeted over???

I have kind of found it... I took a panel off in my back storage compartment and I can see it. But it is too far in for me to reach. It looks like from inside the storage compartment that there is an access panel under my bed.. But in the bedroom that area is covered with carpet.... Is it possible they carpeted over the access panel???

My 2015 29 MV has the whole house filter under the lav sink. Sounds like yours is in a different place.

What a nightmare

There was noo access panel... I had to pull out all of the walls inside the storage compartment to reach it... And you need a freaking engineering degree to understand all this piping.

There are shutoffs on either side of the filter... I assume they are just for the purpose of changing the filter without allowing large air bubbles into the pipe... The maunal claims the rig comes with a pipe for bypassing the filter... I did not get that

Considering this item needs regular maintenance... What a nightmare!!!

my dealer pulled the back panel off and showed me where the filter was then advised against installing the filter for two reasons 1 being it is a pia to change and 2 nobody drinks campground water anyway. So we left ours out and havent had any problems. I dont think the dealer installed a bypass kit im pretty sure they just left it out.

Your dealer was right

GH01... Your dealer was bang on. I will not be using filter.... My only concern now is winterizing and having to flush that container full of pink stuff every spring. That and the way it is set up I will never be able to flush all the water so it will not be 100% antifreeze.

I have attached a couple of photos... One is the compartment opened up from the passenger side. The second is the reason I am happy I did it... Check out the 12" by 6" hole that Jayco never bothered to fill...That is some of the shoddiest trailer construction I have ever seen... I would have had an entire colony of mice in there next spring. There is no possible excuse for such crumby workmanship!

Yowza, is that inconvenient or what! Glad my MV has it in a convenient location because I use it. I put a filter in that takes care of bad tasting campground water. If I wasn't able to replace the filter with a good one I would have put an undersink filter in just like my last rig. I've been to quite a few different campgrounds across the US this year and the filter took care of any bad flavors.

I haven't used mine yet. I still hang a blue Camco filter off the side of the coach.
