The filter cartridge is a 10" but unlike most foam or paper media, these are very fine carbon molded cylinders. Rated for 5 micron particulate plus chemical removal they are a first class unit. Necessary for RV? you decide, but about $40.00 delivered, they aren't cheap.

A six inch pipe nipple (brass or quality plastic) with standard 1/2" pipe thread will simply replace the entire filter assembly. All you need to do is unthread the brass pipe adapters that connect to the filter assembly and substitute the pipe nipple. The use of Teflon tape or an appropriate pipe dope is best. Nothing to it.

Yes, a picture would be great. I can see from my 24R that the space is very cramped. That must have been a challenge to do.
