Water Filter

Sorry if this has been posted already but I didn't see a specific answer. I want to replace the water filter under the Bed in my 2013 Solera 24S. When I winterized it, I pulled the filter out but the brand/specs are not listed on there. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks...

I've never used the supplied onboard filter. I prefer to use the inline filter that can be connected to the outside water inlet. That gives me a better indication of the condition of the filter itself, requires no special tool, and doesn't require doing all sort of contortions to check/change the onboard filter. Also filters water before going into the fresh water tank, removing any spores etc., that may be in the campground water, and can grow inside the FW tank.

Got ours at Lowes just took the old one with me and compared them. For the most part they are all the same size and it just depends on what you want it to do. At the beginning of the season I flush everything out, before putting the filter in. I then put some clorox and water in the water tank and flush all the lines again. Most campgrounds have chlorinated water and if they don't they have to be checked to make sure that the water supply isn't contaminated. More than likely if you get something in your water supply it will be from your hose. Make sure and drain them good doesn't hurt to put a little clorox through the hose and work it through till you smell it coming out the other end.

What inline filter are you using? That sound like a good idea over getting into the filter canister under the bed.

Henry: Darned if I can tell you right now. I threw away the boxes! Best I recall, I bought a couple of them online on sale and I can't remember where! Here's one available on Amazon.com that looks identical.

Mark is right. If you use the inline filter I mentioned, be sure and connect it between the hose and your coach. (Hoses have been known to get cruddy!) I fashioned a short (1' long) hose to make the connection between filter and coach).

One of the first things I did on our 2014 24R was remove the filter. It is prone to breaking and flooding the MH if you forget to dump it and the weather turns cold. I replaced it with a 6" 1/2" brass pipe nipple. I filter the water at the inlet if necessary.
