FR1 Pricing Past Ridiculous.

Just went to RV Dealer to pick up First Aid Kit for broken blind string. No stock. Thought I would pick up a new FR1 filter. Looked at price, $79.95 Canadian. At 25 cents a bottle that would be 320 500ml bottles of water. Are they nuts!? I've never had an issue with filter casing but the cartridge will be removed this year.

Remove the whole thing before it breaks on you. Lots of threads here from people with flooded RV's due to cracked FR1/KW1's.

Here's one of many:

Water filter cracked open

A 69 cent 1/2" coupler will save you a lot of heartache.

Another reason to go to the international rally at Goshen. Those filters are sold there in a three pack
