Water Filter

We just got back from W.Md. on our first trip of the year, everything worked fine and there were no issues with the camper.
I forgot to buy a new water filter for the camper(A122) from the local Camping World store, so I went to WalMart and purchased a Camco (blue) RV filter that hooks up to the fresh water hose. I left the interior filter housing empty of a filter and just used the Camco one. The water pressure was much better and I think I will just go this route from now on, it`s a lot easier to replace and less chance of a leak inside.

That's exactly what we do on our Sabre. You are using a water pressure regulator aren't you?

This post made me realize that I never re-installed a water filter at all for this trip!

Worst water pressure we've dealt with. I almost wonder if my Watts regulator got bumped/jostled to lower its pressure. My guess it's the park and it just has low water pressure.

Yup, I have used one on all of my campers. Replacing water lines on a camper is not fun.

I noticed a drip from my filter today. I need to go and get a few O-rings from my friendly FR dealer.

We removed our interior filter as well because of poor water pressure.

I am trying to become a first time A-Frame owner this week. So I am looking for all the little things a newbee needs to know. Where is the interior water filter on these models?

If it has one it will be right near the water pump.
