Yeh, it sure was a pain, but, us rvers can look back with a sense of humor and hope it never happens again. I had to keep laughing to keep my sanity.

He held onto the top of the canister then pulled on the pipe for leverage and off it came. Wow ! Could not believe it was over. We made sure we lubricated it before it was put back on after taking out the filter. Now, hoping none of you ever have this problem, but if you do, keep a pipe handy, just be sure and hold the canister for stability so no damage is done. Thanks for everyone's help and advice. Now on to finishing the winterizing tomorrow after a good nights rest.

Hey guys just remember that's plastic and it will break quicker when it's cold.

That's what I'm "afeared" of...... It was sunny last week, now the fog has rolled in. I think my window of opportunity is gone to try to get my water filter thing off.......

Fog shouldn't bother it, but temperature sure will. You can always use your hair dryer to warm it a little.
