Help removing water pur filter cap from silverback

We are new to full timing and chose to do it at the worst time of year. It's freezing here and our silverback 33RL is holding up good except the white cap that holds the water filter housing is cracked. We want to remove it and replace with a new part or maybe even try to repair the piece we have until the new part comes in. We got the filter off and the clear housing for the filter but can't get the white cap off. Any clues for us?

On my Silverback it looks as though you only need to disconnect the water supply and then remove the screws holding the white cap to the bracket.

Thank you for responding so quickly. Also, the picture is very helpful. I think we must have another model year since our filter system looks a little different. We have clamps that are holding the tubes onto the filter cap. We are having trouble removing those clamps. I'll see if my husband can snap a photo for me to post since I'm not there.
Thank you!
