Question Water filter system

This my first post.
We just purchased a new to us 2006 Sunseeker 2860ds.
My question is does this water filter, filter the water while you are using "city water" or only filling your holding tank?
The only reference I have to the water filter was when the RV dealer did a walk through and said he said "you don't have to worry about the water filter for a year, we just put in a new one".
Any help would be wonderful.
Many thanks.

The filter housing is threaded onto the top plate. You should have a white, plastic wrench which fits over the outside of the filter housing to help with the removal. Careful with the o ring seal on the top of the housing. A replacement filter can be purchased at any hardware store. Take the old with you and find one that's the same dimensions with the same seal arrangement.

Use cartridge numbers
d-10
d-20
d-30
Or d-40

They all have different micron ratings some say use the
finer micron (better filtering) some say use the course micron (less filtering) .


Example a 5 micron will filter more than a 20 micron
Most bacteria is .2 to 2 micron wide by 100 micron long.

I use the smallest micron I can fine. Some will tell you that
Will plug up with well water. But I've never had a pressure drop or plugged filter in 10 years with changing my filter once a year.
Btw they normally come in a two pack

Use your judgement.

As Dave said, look for a white plastic filter wrench that would fit on the outside of the water filter housing. Before attempting to remove the filter be sure to turn the water off at the source and then open a faucet to relieve the pressure in the lines. Relieving the pressure in the lines will make it easier to unscrew the housing.

As an update

Filter length is 9 3/4"
Filter width is 2 1/4"
Filter center hole is 1"
Approximately!


The culligan pt number for a 30 micron is cw-mf
this is a basic filter of course sediment particles
For AVERAGE use of 12,000 gallons in 3 months.
