THANKS KyDan. BillyBass for your comeback....and JohnF for the photo....I copied it to my computer. That way I can print it and use it as a template in the Spring, when I attempt to do the "water filter removal" myself.

Well, misery truly does love company and I feel better knowing I am not alone. I took lots of pics and kept the part. I also immediately notified the service manager at my dealer and texted him pics. Hopefully no damage occurred. One good thing about the cold, windy, unseasonable weather we have had is fast dry time.

Mine looks like Youroo's, except that my filter is up even with the water inlet with just a short hose. I plumbed it like KyDan under the sink area where it was.

Had the same water filter issue with our new Rockwood 8289ws. Bought our rig in Shipshewana and had to stop on our way home at a Forest River dealer in Rapid City when the canister unscrewed itself. Instead of going through the warranty process just paid to have it removed. Poor location and bad filter product.

This may sound like a stupid question, but given how easy these things are to break, I want to be sure. Looking down at the filter bowl, which way do these things un-screw? Mine is so tight it can’t be correct. There is a bit of play in either direction but it just stops turning after about 1/8” of play. I just want to avoid breaking it even though I’m taking it out all together. Thanks for the help...

I have found that on mine I have to relive all water pressure first by opening the faucets at kitchen sink and turn to the left mine comes off fairly easy but your "O" ring might be dry and sticking you might have to turn harder I try to grab mine at the bottom to prevent the bowl from locking. On reinstalling I put a dab of sanitary "O" ring lube on it don't use any with petroleum in it as will damage the plastic housing.

Not so stupid. Set your wrench, hold filter base with other hand. Turn firmly to the left without jerking, and keep base from twisting and breaking.

Filter down .
Turn clear housing from right to left.

As said relieve water pressure.
