Water Filter for 2015 Windjammer

Just wondering what type & model/item # for a my water filter?? Also where do they sell them Home Depot/Lowes or only RV stores? I looked thru my paperwork and don't see anything on the water filter. Thanks, Cyndi

What does it says on your water filter enclosure: manufacturer and model #

I just priced one for my Windjammer at the rv dealer, they wanted $40.00,which I thought was a little expensive.I did not have the maker or model number, but I have the filter I took out last yr. I looked at walmart with no luck. Mine looks clean with only a few trips on it. Let me know if you locate one. Thanks

I bet you have the same FR1 water filter housing as I do. I actually talked to a guy from WaterPur. He claims the problems people are having with these filter housings (leaking and un-screwing) is caused by thinking they found a replacement filter at one of the Big Box stores. If the filter is just a shade longer the tabs won't catch and lock. He also said to use a silicone plumbers grease on the o-ring. Shop Danco Silicone Grease at Lowes.com (NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH SILICONE CAULKING)

Also, make sure the red arrow on the clear housing lines up the with pointer looking arrow on the top part of the white housing while screwing it on. It just happens that the red arrow on my the clear housing lines up with the pointer that's on the back of the housing when properly tightened. If that's your case, don't try to make another full revolution to get the red arrow on the front side. There are pointers on the front and back.

If you keep your FR1 filter system use only filters for the FR1. They are pricey compared to other whole house filters out there, but don't substitute and take a chance.

here's a picture of mine it shows that the label on housing with the red arrow is not on the front. It's on the back side which also has a pointer arrow showing that its lined up properly

The proper filter cartridge (KW1) is not expensive when compared to Home Despot, walbob, lows, etc. FR1 are about $30 on their web sight, and are good for 10,000 gallons and flow 2.5 gallons per minute. Kampin world filters sell for about the same money and only flow only .5 gallon per minute (try to take a shower in that). I am quite careful with my money, but all my research says that the original is our best choice for the $.

100% agree, they just seem pricey compared to $8.00 for a two pack for my whole house filter in my home.
