This is a photo from a recent advertisement for the new Designer 5th wheel high end line. They are highlighting it having whole house water filtering. One of my gripes from my 2014 is that they installed the water filter behind the wall (harder to get at every year to replace) and they install it over the 12v water pump. So what happens every time you change the filter. It's wet and has some residual water in it. Where does it end up? Yup right on the pump and wiring. Sometimes they can weep and if not perfectly sealed they or the ring is starting to go or unseat, they slow leak, yup right on the 12v pump.

They should relocate this to the water control panel, or at least away from the pump and wiring. Just a suggestion for continual improvement!!

I just put a towel over the pump. Problem solved. I have never had a filter leak/seep in all the years I have been using them.

There is nothing under my filter and I never spill a drop but that one is certainly not in a convenient location.

Takes less than 5 min to change, at least on the PINNACLE.

Not the best picture, but this is where I have my 2 stage water filter system. It works well and is easy to remove to replace the filters. There is approx a 1 inch gap between the door when closed and where the hoses pass from the filter assembly to the trailer input fitting and also from shore water. I have said I was going to mount this filter assembly to the wall, but it rides nicely where it is and I just haven't bothered to do it.

Sorry for the rotated picture.
