Maybe the filter housing has been changed after model year 2012 but I have replaced my elements with standard 10 inch filters I got at Lowes and Walmart. I hit some places with bad water last season and needed to replace a couple times.
You just have to be careful and not get too fine (low micron size) a filter or the pressure drop though it will lower the water pressure in the coach. I think the original was 25 or 50 micron which is a bit on the high side but doesn't restrict flow as much as a 10-15 micron.
