I am just guessing that it takes the KW1 filter for the FR1 canister. If this is the one, you can only buy them from Forest River, or Water Pur. they are like 30.00 plus 6 bucks for shipping I think. They are starting to be sold at RV places, I know there is 1 place that has free shipping , I will try to find it if this is the filter that you need,

I believe I would swap mine to a Lowes hole house filter at that price.

I've got two of these.

Small pipe connecting them together. Filters are under $10.

I thought I'd use the factory filter for the first year of camping and then swap it out with a Culigan or GE whole house filter, but after our first outing I've changed my mind. I out the filter in the canister and tightened down. Put the panel back on to cover it. Got to our camp destination and setup. About two hours. Decided to go for a walk with the dw, 2dds, and the dog. Came back 1/2 hour later to find water pouring out from under the door. When I opened it a rush of water came flowing out. Good thing I was nose down. That much water would have flooded my wfco. When I checked on the filter the canister had unscrewed and both were sitting on the floor. I put the canister back on without the filter. About two hours later my wife heard water running. Sure enough, the canister was unscrewing and water was gushing out. This time I tightened the canister and left the wrench on it with the filter element jammed between the wrench and the wall. It still tried to back off. Crushed the filter element. So, I think I'll bypass the filter altogether and go back to hanging the camco off the trailer No worries of leaks or having to rush to remove the panel again.

Some people build stands for theirs.





I just use a cinder block. The containers fit perfectly inside it. Never have to worry about water leaking into the trailer if they aren't screwed on tight enough.
