Our Salem 5th wheel owner's manual states our camper came with a water filter, but we cannot find it under the kitchen sink or back by the bathroom. So where is it? Thanks.

Probably in the basement somewhere behind a removable panel.
Usually inside, somewhat near where the city water connection is on the outside.

Water Filtration Systems

Anyone who drinks (or brushes their teeth) with water from a questionable source, unknown well or stream, needs a quality water filter/purifier.

Luckily, inexpensive ones are available and should be in everyone's hurricane kit (in addition to their boondocking supplies).

Life Straws are great for hiking: http://www.amazon.com/LifeStraw-LSPH...r+purification

I ALWAYS carry a "go bottle" in the car: http://www.amazon.com/LifeStraw-Bott...8TH51ZKPAGCDEW

They also make a 1 liter at a time size: http://www.amazon.com/LifeStraw-Fami...90GNHPQ813QJ9A

Or a "whole camp" size: Amazon.com : LifeStraw Mission High-Volume Gravity-Fed Water Purifier, 12 L : Sports & Outdoors

For a bad well, you could also use one of these at home:

These whole house water filters are to protect the PLUMBING from sediment and dirt (while marginally improving "taste"); not you from bad water. Only a purifier can kill or remove bacteria and viruses in questionable water.
