Water Filter Replacement cartridge

I've never had a water filter before (in the RV or home) so I would like some help on selecting the correct replacement water filter cartridge (C-Series) for our Sabre 32RCTS.

What type cartridge do most people use?

Remember if you get one that stops 99.9 of the particles it will reduce your water pressure. What I suggest is get the exact micron filter if possible or just buy the cheap $5 ones at the plumbing stoes.
All you want to stop is the large particles and the faucet het will reduce the rest.
Sometime cheaper is better.

Yea, ditto. Or remove it completely and use a throw away the hooks to the hose bib. You can use the spot where it was located to install an expansion tank to have water pressure without running the pump in the middle of the night when on battery.

Thanks all for the cartridge selection help.

Herk...I was thinking about adding a Shurflo Accumulator Tank which I see in your pics but I also see the Water Works tank. Are you using both??

Very true! I tried a big box store filter and it wouldn`t flow very well if at all. I went to the RV shop and bought an RV specific filter and it worked like my original. however we only use a filter when we use water out of the fresh water tank, which has been this year and last year. before and after that we don`t put a filter in the housing, (it doesn`t need a filter to work). we use an inline filter on the freshwater hose into the trailer.

Tried the Shurflo for a year and removed it to put the 2 gallon tank in its place.
The pint sized Shurflo worked great but we only got a "#1" flush before the pump came on. Now we can use the hopper several times before the pump runs.

I kinda figured that's what you did. We probably will start with the smaller Shurfo tank since I've got a good spot for it

Thanks for the info.
