good, have terrible pressure in my 2014 2860DS. And, hate spending 600% markup. Someone was saying (I think) there was a small bump on the housing , wondering if the FR housing can be modified to take all the 10" filters

Keep what you have and move it outside.

That was tried without success by one owner, don't recall if filter or canister were the issue. I would be leary as they already have leak issues.

This was in response to modifying the F1

Pentek system and bracket, which fits in the same holes the F1/KW1 for those that have already been installed.

I built this portable system, identical to my F1/KW1 replacement, for use in a Class C, out of pocket less than $30.00.

Not sure, but was under the impression most existing whole house RV water filter systems were 1/2, my Trilogy fifth wheel (F1/KW1) was 1/2.

I used the Pentek 1/2 for both and for portable below, two brass fittings from Lowes for water hoses. Don't forget 7-10 wraps of good quality teflon tape.

I realize this is an older thread, but it's applicable to my situation. I agree with @lgray and am in the process of swapping out the FR1/KW1 filter on my Flagstaff. The one question that hasn't been answered is what type of filter should be used in an RV? Carbon filter? Sediment filter? Combo filter? One of the earlier posts indicated that they used these:

https://www.filtersfast.com/P-DuPont...bon-Filter.asp

But, the claim in that post was that these were 5 micron filters, but the description for this filter indicates they are 20 micron filters. Still better than the KW1, but I'm curious on what other people are using in their RV. Thanks!

We ordered 6 of these 5 Micron, Sediment Filters when ordering our canisters.
https://www.filtersfast.com/P-Hydronix-SPC-25-1005-Water-Filter.asp
Because our refrigerator is filtered, we opted for a good Sediment over carbon.
I replaced mine on our seasonal; this past weekend, estimating that is was used 30-60 days of camping…see pictures.
After replacing, we noticed improved drinking water through the fridge and will likely go 5 micron carbon next time around.
