Happy new owners of a Jay Flight 28BHBE

Hi everyone! We are excited about our new 2014 Jay Flight 28BHBE. However, we are wondering about the water filter, can anyone provide info on how to change it? Thanks!

Welcome to the forum. Sorry, no info on the water filter as our trailer does not have one.

Nice trailer. If I was to buy a Jay Flight today it would be the 28BHBE - 2 years ago I got the 25BHS which is very similar but has single bunks. It's still perfect for our small family!

Did you get the 28BHBE with the bike rack? How do you like it so far?

Ditto!

I have the same trailer and I love it! But now I'm gonna have to go look for a filter... Though I can't think of where it might be that would be accessible enough? But as I'm typing this, I I think I remember TWO access panels in the bottom bunk on the outside of the shower wall. One in the middle that would coincide with the back of the shower valve (very common). But I recall another panel very close to the corner between the outside of the shower wall and the rear wall. I was in there not long ago and I saw the panel and wondered what it might be for, but then got distracted...

If there is an access panel there, I think this would be the most likely location for a filter. It would be just on the inside of the city water connection.

The trailer happens to be in the driveway for a couple days, so I will try to check this evening to see if my memory was correct...

So there was another panel in the lower bunk. I opened it up and there was nothing. Just a hole. I ran my fingers around behind the panel and didn't feel anything. I'm thinking it may have been used to access something else during assembly, but there was certainly no filter back there. I didn't bother opening up the other panel because I'm relatively certain it is just access to the back of the shower water valves.

So that got me to thinking... where else could a filter go? It would have to be somewhat easily accessible so you could change it. So I opened up the storage under the bottom bunk and peered in as far as I could see. I saw that the city water passes through down there, along with the black tank flush and the outside shower, I could see the back of all of those items; no filter. So I went inside and looked all around under the sink near the water pump; no filter.

If there is a filter on this unit, I can't find it... There are a few other places I will try next time I pull it from storage: under the pantry, outside under the kitchen near the junctions of all the water hoses and the fresh tanks, under the sink...

If it had one and its not easy to get to I would take it out. It's simply eaiser to use an inline carbon filter on the hose connection outside the unit. Just buy one every now and then for $14 at Wal-Mart and you are done. Our previous trailer had one that was inside a screwed on panel under the sterio. You had to lay on your side and get as much of yourself inside that space as possible before you could unscrew the clear cover and spill the water.. So the solution was screw on the cover to seal it and forget the filter is even there and go with an outside filter. But it sounds like you don't have one and what I am saying here is: that's a good thing.

The only filter I seen on mine was a strainer that was attached to the end of the fresh water pump, it's the same as the one that eldermike mentioned
