Palomino Solaire 317BHSK

Does anyone know where the Water filter is located on the 317BHSK to see if it has been installed? I received a wrench with the owners manual, but I cannot seem to locate the filter.

It'll be right next to your water pump if you have an idea where it is.

I appreciate that insight....Our PDI was less than helpful...I knew more about the TT by reading on the forum from the last few weeks than our tech did. One thing that I did not find on here was the location of the water filter. I do have a hidden access point outside the shower that it might be located in, but have yet to start taking it apart to look for it.

Normally the water pump is right behind where your city water and fw fill station is but inside camper.
May be behind a hidden panel or in a cubby.

On my 269 it's located behind a panel where the park water connection is.

I don't use built in filter, it stays bypassed. I use a inline filter on my hose. It's to easy vs removing items in storage, unscrewing panel, wedge myself inside to change built in filter.

I've said this before but you have to be very careful when buying inline filters as there micron ratings tend to be in the 30+ RANGE which isn't filtering much at all.
I have a chart in the library that shows micron ratings and what they filter.
