Water-Pur Filtration

I need some help... Trailer has low water pressure...I suspect the water filter system. I remember a good post on how to drain the system w/a small trash can but can not find it . Any help or recommendations would be great!

Put small container under filter housing and unscrew
Replace filter.

The filter that comes with the system is a deluxe filter good also for chlorine and myself also found out out that the water pressure was quite low with this type of filter. Try a regular one that filter just the debries. You will see the difference in the pressure.

I found that an external inline filter was more effective.

I removed the whole house filter and replaced it with a pressure tank.

The in line filter goes on the water tap and the pressure reducer goes right at the entrance to the camper.

I use an adjustable pressure reducer so I can maintain a steady pressure in the camper as the external filter blocks up.

Changing the filter is as simple as swapping it out with a new one.

Question water filter

We bought a new 2011 GreyWolf and for the life of us we can not find the water filter anywhere......We looked near the hot water heater, under the bath sink, under the kitchen sink but can not find it anywhere....where can we find it?

I don't own a greywolf, but the way they are normally plumbed there is a T fitting that connects the pump output and city water pipes and outputs to the water filter.

Ours was located behind a panel in the "basement."

That looks an awful lot like an accumulator...

Good news, I think , found where the lines come into the trailer, behind the toilet, the pump is in the "dining room" under the entertainment center behind a panel but NO filter. Have an email into the dealer to let them know that the filter is not there.
