Water Pur Filter Location

I have a 2016 Cherokee 304BS. I was talking to a fellow camper this weekend that has a FR hybrid. He said all FR campers have a water filer somewhere inside. I always use a screw on outdoor one, not aware of any other one inside. Checked my owners manual and toward the back they mention a Water Pur brand filter. The way it was worded I couldn't tell if one was in there or they were simply suggesting one. I figured if it was in the trailer it would be by the pump. Checked out the compartment where the pump is and saw a shureflo pump and a little canister with a strainer in it. Canister is the size of a spool of sewing thread, pretty sure it's not a filter. Does anyone know if FR installs these filters, or where they would be if one is there?

Thanks.

My Coachmen did not come with one, I am glad for that.

Saved me the trouble of pulling it out and trashing it......

The other guy is misinformed. My unit did not come with a water filter.

Just returned from two weeks on the Blue Ridge Parkway and found about a jigger full of black sand in the PUR water filter. Can't believe we would have been drinking all that stuff if we hadn't had a filter. I have no clue which CG donated this stuff.

I never drink water from the camper, I use bottle water, cooking or drinking

I took my out because of many horror stories about leak and put one on my water hose.

I took out mine because it was one of the horror stories. It is an "option" package that most that most FR's have.

I checked top to bottom - I don't think i actually have one. I hope i'm right! I don't want one, I use the one that screws onto the hose. It's cheap, and easy to toss in the trash after the season. I called FR with my VIN #, and they don't even know if its there or where it would be. How is that possible. They don't know whats in their own trailers??? I had the same issue with the roof. Wanted to know if I have TPO or EPDM, they have no idea - truly amazing to me.

Besides some one who has your model chiming in...mine was hidden behind one of those screwed down panels in the rear compartment.
