I use an outside filter. Forest River located my filter housing inside the front storage compartment at about the center of the camper, so you have to crawl in on your back to get access to it.....what the heck were they thinking? ....oops forgot, its Forest River, they don't think.

Well mine is just inside the basement storage door, very easy to reach. I just put an empty folgers plastic coffee can (large one) beneath it. Then I un-screw the clear plastic bowl and all the water drains into the coffee can no mess and hardly spill any.....

I never thought of that. I'll give that a try the next time I swap filters.

I have the Rockwood 8280 SS 5'er. The filter, pump water heater and bypass are behind a panel near the floor in the kitchen. Not too bad to reach, use a big plastic bowl to catch the spill in.

The first mod I made to the rig was to remove the 3rd hinge from that panel and put a magnetic cabinet catch on there. Never put a knob on it, but now I don't need a screwdriver to get in there.

Filling the empty canister with "pink stuff" is what tipped the scales for me...now I blow the lines out with air pressure. I do remove the filter for winterization.
