Water filter

My 22j came with a Flow-Pur water filter, horrible location and something I don’t want to change again. Does anyone use them or do you use the portable ones? I’m guessing I can just take the filter out and screw the canister back on. Anything I’m missing? Thanks

Some people take them due to location out and use portable. We are lucky on our Class C 31DS we open a panel on hinges in the big through rear storage and it’s right there along with water pump and back side of water controls.

Not so lucky with the 22J. I think I can just put the canister back and use a hose filter ��*♂️

Rather than leaving the empty canister in, many of us have removed it and put a 6" PVC riser in in its place (6" PVC pipe with 1/2" threads on each end, available at Home Depot for less than a dollar).

Iím not sure where it goes once you remove the canister. Is there a problem with leaving it on?

X2, Better choice, that housing would hold a lot of water which could dilute anti freeze when winterizing.

You just remove the wood screws that hold the canister to the RV, unscrew the plastic connector on each side of the canister, and the entire canister comes out. Then, you put the riser where the canister was and screw on the connector on each end. Easy peasy.

Thanks. If you use a filter on the hose, the interior filter makes no sense.

I guess it depends on what you bought and how you look at it. Those $25 Blue Camco hose filters are 20 micron, if I recall. A bit better than straining your water thru pantyhose. A bit...

In the filter in our RV, I run a 5 micron filter.

If the potable water is new to me, unknown or give me pause, then I'll run both. Let the Camco catch the "boulders" and the interior filter strain out the "pebbles".

We use this on the hose. One micron, good enough for me.

Good thing you did, that pipe is not made for drinking water. Clearly marked "For irrigation use only"....

26M filter location

My inlaws just got a Redhawk 26M. Anyone know the location of the water filter? Just thought I'd ask before I start taking panels out.

Thanks,
Randy

inline filter storage between uses

Slightly off topic but what do you all do with the hose filter between camping trips? Just let it dry, blow it out, add a little bleach, cap the ends or ??? I just bought a camco unit and am wondering what to do with it when I disconnect it. We typically go for a week or so at a time with a couple weeks in between. Sometimes just filling the tank and others with fresh water hookup.

We just shake the water out and cap it until the next trip. It gets replaced every year, but we only get out for 4 or 5 week-long trips.

Remember to hook it to a hose and flush it out before useing it. A good amount of black charcoal dust will flush out of it the first time.
