If you noticed in my picture the 1 x 3 board that the filter bracket is attached to has (2) steel "T" supports braces. The first time I went to remove my filter to winterize the 1 x 3 board came completely off. The way the factory stapled this board in to attach the filter house to wasn't structural sound enough to hold anything. I got another 1 x 3 board (a inch or so long to overlap another stud) glued and screwed it to the back of the existing board and put (2) steel "T" support braces on it, Solid as a rock now.

Might also mention, the factory guy on the filters said I didn't have to replace the filter every year if it looked good and wasn't used a whole bunch that season. Just remove it when winterizing, let it air dry and re-use next season.

I wouldn't try to re-use a water filter.
Think about bacteria growth in there after a complete season on the shelf !!
No thanks, not for me !

Can I ask. Where is that filter located? I just purchased a 2015 Rockwood 8286ws fifth wheel and it came with a water filter in the draw. But I can't find the housing anywhere. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks

Look in the garage on the street side, there is probably a short panel held on with 4 screws, remove the panel and you will probably find the water pump and the filter.

No. No panels like that. I does make sense to be near the pump. I have to be missing something.

Sometimes it is underneath entertainment/TV center behind a door that has multiple hinges and one set needs to be removed, that is where mine is. Subwoofer could be there also.

Try RV Water Filter Store: Standard Filter Canisters for Whole RV. We have bought from them for years, We have a 2013 Windjammer and use their CBC-10 filter. If you have questions about fit they are very helpful and can get you to the correct filter. Don't panic about their shipping cost; when they ship they will adjust the cost down to actual cost.
I tried to give the actual site for The Water Filter Store and it was changed to the above. I guess I am not allowed to post an actual site. Oh well. Just google the above/
