So can you share that canister part number you got at Lowes? I know a lot of people are looking for replacements.

I had that too. But nothing a jackknife couldn't clear out. And I'm happy to have lots of insulation and crack sealant! Once that was cleared a bit, I was able to remove full filter canisters twice without spilling a drop. Just use two hands, lower straight down and take straight out. The location under the bed is very not optimal but apparently that's where it had to be...

Here are some pictures of the filter I use. I have a new one installed and have 5 spares I carry in the basement. I will change filters after I get home from 3+ months in FL.

Installed a bypass on my 2011 Sunseeker 2300. Horrible job because the idiots at Forest River did not leave sufficient space to the left of the water pump for the bypass valve. It's bad enough to deal with a cheapskate company that won't provide a bypass, but having to redo the piping is adding insult to injury. Had to cut pipe and shift water pump to the right. Took the opportunity to remove the water filter. Another horrible project due to lack of clearance above top screws.
