Look under the bed that picks up. The canister unscrews.

Don't forget to relieve the system pressure before trying to open the filter housing. Don't ask me how I know!

Water Filter

Once you find it under the bed, I would start making plans to bypass and remove it. We were camped at Ft Wilderness at Disney World when mine blew apart. The clear canister separated at the top of the threads. We got back to our '06 255GTS with water coming out of every orfice. Opened the door to a wave of water. This was about 10p. Guess what we did until dawn... I now use an exterior water filter!

On our Lexi 283ts the filter was located in the same cubby hole under the bed, right next to (I mean 6" away) the fuse/breaker panel, and above all the electrical wiring feeding into the panel.
First thing I did, day after we got it, was to completely remove the filter and housing. Bridged the gap with pex and sharkbite fittings. Could just imagine what kind of damage/shorting out/fire would have occured had the housing cracked or leaked.

Hats off to Forrest River for there engineering design and safe layout of critical components. Their design team should be applauded for their excellant use of stupidity in creating these things.

Airbags

I do not see where I can post a question on this forum so the best I can do is try the reply forum. I have a 2013 forest river Lexington I am trying to determine what the proper air pressure is for the airbag system located in the rear of the RV. Model is a 283TS. Would also appreciate info on where I can post a question on this forum. Any help appreciated.

Go to any sub-forum you wish to post on, and at the top of the threads you will see a tab New Thread.
Hit it and it will open a place to post your topic and thread.
In answer to your airbag question, a minimum of 20 lbs pressure should be kept in the bags, and a maximum of 100 lbs is the most.
Most of us, myself run 60-80 lbs, depending on the weight your carrying.
I have found that for my 283ts if I keep it at around 75 lbs, it gives me the best, smoothest ride, along with my tire pressure which I also keep at around 75 lbs.
Your going to have to experment a bit to find what is best for your rig.
