Swift 20T water filter

How do you access the water filter? This picture taken from the access hatch under the driver side bed. The filter is about 4 feet away from where the camera was in this picture.

I believe there is two screws holding down the board that adjustable bed rest is on.
Should be easy to get to after removing that.

I'll have to look closer.

I'll have to give that a closer look. I explored that possibility but didn't see anything obvious. Even if that's not the case now, I'll probably modify it to work as you noted. We're in central Texas and camp year-round. It's not atypical for us to winterize and de-winterize numerous times. I'll need to get that canister emptied a number of times through the winter months and it will need to be fairly easy to get to.

My dealer removed the 4 screws that hold the filter to its mount. That should allow you to get a grip on it to remove the housing and get to the cartridge.

The panel that holds has the adjustable head rest can be removed. I believe the cover does have 2 screws but my dealer removed them and never put them back. Just like they never remounted the filter to its housing.

Swift LI water filter

Anyone sanitize their Swift water system.
Manual directions refer to valves that I donít have. Also directs you to remove the water filter. Sounds like a heck of mess in a cabinet with a lot of electronics and wiring.
I imagine placing the filter in a bucket to capture the water might work.
Anybody do this yet?

Found the screws, not easy to find, but not bad once you know

As noted eariler, two screws. Just not easily seen.

One wood screw on the aisle side about mid way (front to back) on the section that holds the reclining part of the bed. Another sheet metal type screw directly across from it. Hopefully the pictures help. There's a lot of unused space under that bed (and it also gets pretty warm with the Truma under there).

To sanitize the water system need to close the inlet valve and the outlet valve from the Truma heater. Not supposed to run sanitizer thru it. The Truma is sanitized separately by running it on "Hot" setting for a short period. When i changed out water filter last winter i lost the rubber washer inside one of the hose fittings. Reconnected it with a standard
"O" washer....not good...water leak when the pump turned on. If you need to replace the washer it must be a conical washer.

Driver's side bed. Head end. Lift up the headed panel. Inside the right side of compartment. Mounted on the floor. Valve. You'll have to move the mound of spaghetti (wiring).
Plus open the low point drain.
That's all I know. The dealer doesn't seem to want to tell me anything else about draining it. There is a process that is not in the manual and the dealer had to figure out themselves. They just won't tell me.

No Truma heater in my rig. I have a Timberline heater which has a heat exchanger. No water passes through the heater. (Just learned this from Timberline).
So, it looks like all I have to do is remove the water filter and follow the process in the manual.
