I was in the office with the dealer while he had Forest River on speaker phone and was talking with him directly.

My tech at my dealer said to drain all the antifreeze from the filter because he has seen them crack when full of antifreeze. Too late now, but maybe a tip for others. I used the antifreeze in the filter housing to pour down my P-traps and toilet.

We have heard others say their filter cracked after sitting full of
antifreeze. No idea why but this is not the 1st time I've heard of it.
MY theory is the filter was full of water and not enough antifreeze got in
there to completely flush out all the water.
I know I would not let mine sit full of anything- water OR antifreeze
all winter for this reason.
