Karen, I posted these pics to show where our filter is. I agree that someone did it just to be mean
It could have been placed right at the front since it has to be dealt with.

It's the craziest set up! make it even more fun, there is something electrical under there..might be something for the slide.

I should get pics!
Good grief what a pain, loose that rascal! But in the mean time...
I like the bag idea and wonder if the pump off/open faucet suction might possibly help.

Put a big towel underneath. I usually splash a bit, but not a lot.

We love our G'town but the location of the water filter is a ROYAL PITA. It's tucked into a small opening UNDER the corner of the bed.

Of course, the filter is full of water and there is NO way to unscrew it and dump it without spillage.

I'd love to know the rationale behind the location. Surely, there would be a better place. I think the genius that decided to put it there did it just to be mean.
I agree its a bad location and when I got my A194HW I installed the water filter and it leaked until I got it tighten down and Instead of replacing it I bought a hose and portable water filter and Always use it to fill my tank and I hope to really not have to replace the inside filter since the water is pre-filtered! So, unless the filter container breaks I am good with No changes.

If your water lines to the filter are PEX, cut lines a little shorter and use Pex Shark-Bite push on 90 degree fittings and buy an external type filter for a house from HD or Lowes

A Zip lock bag under then around the filter housing will catch any spillage when removing it.

Now that is a GREAT idea.. Wish I'd have thought of that!

If you are not going to reuse the filter remove one of the brass fittings and use the fitting to attach the pipes together. Do not forget to use the rubber washers that are on the end of the brass fittings.
