You threw the first age hit back at #24 and his was intended as humorous "haha" it says. Let's all lighten up and get back to RVing? 😩😅

Whoever gave that tip about "turn on the water pump" and run water to drain it out of the filter cannister, IT WORKED!

I got my water filter cannister off EASY! THANK YOU!

Personally, I don't use any O-ring lube. Keep the ring clean and make sure the cartridge is perfectly aligned with the down tube and screw it on until it makes contact. Go slow, take your time. Once it's on, give a gentle twist to tighten and Voila! The cartridge should be leak free.
Better to use just a little Danco Silicone lube on the O ring. If nothing is used on the O ring, they seem to like to stick to the surfaces they touch. VOE!

Am I the only one here that has put a bypass kit on their water filter canister? It's the same kit as a hot water tank bypass and all you have to do is turn the lever remove canister dump water and winterize. No antifreeze gets to the canister and then in the spring, put the filter back in and turn the lever and you are back in business.

I just don't see a need to do that. All you are doing is saving about a quart of anti-freeze. The stuff isn't that expensive to worry about a quart.

Funny that you'd throw your hat into this ring. Welcome, Mr. Kettle.

I believe this is the simple secret that will cure all of the problems people have with the canisters blowing off.
