During your PDI make sure
you have the tech show youwhere your water filter is (in a lot of Rockwoods, it is behind a screwed shut
First mod I did was remove that special hinge and put in a "normal" door closure! now I can access that area of the RV easily (WHY they lock this door down is beyond me, it is also the access point to our HWT bypass valves!)
Anyway, there is also a special trick that our PDI tech showed us when you change filters. First that goofy looking piece of plactic that you will have in your owner's bag? Well THAT is the filter wrench and if you do not use it you will have similar woes as mentioed above.
Trick is to screw on the new filter hand tight, put the filter wrench on the filter, push UP from the bottem of the filter and tighten with the wrench. You will hear a click-pop - that is the sound of the filter seating securely.
Oh, and a little (really a LITTLE
) vasaline on the ring seal was another tip passed on to us by the PDI Tech.
Hope this helps!
OH and download the PDI checklist from the forums before you go pick up your unit tomorrow!!
