Has anyone changed out the whole filter body and top?? Do you have much hose to work with ? My hose seems fairly short coming out of the walled compartment. Wondering if there is some extra hose length within the compartment, as in behind the wall. The Unit is Columbus 365rl 2014
Other than this piece of junk filter system, the trailer has been great, just love it.
If you ask any dealer for the most part they will only sell you what it came with from the factory, and the factory filter element is a extra fine filter, and if you go to home depot those filters run into the hundreds of dollars, but you can use any whole house water filter from any brand in the housing.
There is nothing wrong with what you have you just need to do some shopping and see what items cost, so just go to any big box store and get a hole house filter that meets your needs and install it and go camping you will be fine.
Now if you want more than what the factory installed yes you can get crazy with filters and water softeners and much more but if you just need a new filter you have all you will ever need without changing any filter housings.
So go enjoy your coach and Happy Camping
