Anybody have a picture of said filter?...........On my 2014 2516G..........I had to take the whole filter housing out to insert the filter and then install it back real room to wrench it off with filter wrench and the amount of torque I had to use to seal the clear base back to the housing would have ripped it out of the mounting bracket.

I have the same problem that few days ago. Here is a tip that I found on the forum.

Before installing the canister, dry off all of the threads on the canister and inside the housing. Then tighten as much as you can. Seems the wet threads can't hold very well.

On my 2014 26 RLS, no problem so far but can't get an answer as to what brand or part number the filter element is. Bill R

I removed our filter tonight...brand new trailer, and decided I wanted it out before we even take our first trip...just joined the lines together afterwards using the Sea Tech connections....seeing as we are still getting nights around freezing mark and a couple degrees colder than freezing, I havent charged the system yet to make sure my connections are good...will have to wait about another week for that...fingers are crossed...heard many good things about the Sea Tech connections.

Experienced same nightmare

Purchased 2014 Solaire 7 about two months ago. Have gone on two trips with no problems. About 5 this morning I hear water but think it is rain and dozed back to sleep (bad, bad, bad idea!). Woke up again and I hear the water again but this time I look out the window and see the sun shining. Shake my hubby awake, swing my feet off the bed and step into an inch of water and now scream at my still half awake husband that something is wrong! ran out of the trailer and shut off the water still not knowing exactly what's wrong. Have to turn on the water again to find out it was coming from the storage area. Open it up, removed the wall around the water filter and their was the filter and casing lying
Ion the floor. The water was throughout the trailer and after spending a couple of hours cleaning up, we put the filter back on no problem. Thinking it was operator error we ran out to do some errands and come back to a wet floor and carpet AGAIN! look in the compartment and someone had seen it happening again and shut the water off. Again we reattached the filter, turned on the water and watched the thing unscrew itself. We did this a couple of times and it kept happening. So now we have a enclosed underbelly full of water (how the heck do we fix that?!?) and a trailer that is drying out in 90+ degree weather with the fans on, hoping it will dry out, and no water for the remainder of the trip. Does anyone know if this is covered by warranty? Not sure why it wouldn't be.
