2016 29 RE Water Filter

I just picked up my new 29 RE ordered back in January. I have been following the CC section of this forum daily and read about a few not so happy owners having problems with the canister style water filters. I was going to install a by pass as others had done but found on this unit there is no such filter. (unless it's hidden).

The filter is most likely behind a panel, given that you have a new 2016 it may not be in the same place as the others you have read about so you will need to hunt for it.

I would start with the curb side basement to your right side if that is where your water hook up is.

You will likely need a #2 Robertson square drive bit.

What does your owners manual say about a water filter? I had notice on the newer models 2015 at the RV show in Feb of 2016 that I attended the water filters were not on the models on display. I did not know about this issue until I was on the site after we ordered a CC34RL.

I did not read the manuel yet with the holiday. The tech did say if it was not on the docking station I don't have one. If I find any other info I'll post it.

I thought they no longer put the water filters in new CC units. If so, you are lucky. I just took mine out and filled the gap with two Sharkbite 90 degree fittings and a 5" piece of Pex.

Where was the filter before you removed it?

It might help the OP.

I see, based on the colour coding.

Quote:
Currently, there are five different Robertson screwdrivers available, with suitable screw size indicated by the color. Orange drivers (#00) are appropriate for use with screw types 1 and 2. The recess size range (the size of the corresponding square imprint on the screw) is from 1.77-1.80 mm. Yellow drivers (#0) work with screw types 3 and 4 and feature a recess size range of 2.29 to 2.31 mm. Green drivers (#1) operate with screw types 5, 6, and 7, with a recess size range of 2.82 to 2.86 mm. Red drivers function with screw types 8, 9, and 10 and have a recess size range of 3.34 to 3.38 mm. Black drivers work with the largest screws, types 12 and higher, and have a recess range of 4.81 to 4.85 mm.
Thanks for the lesson....

Ya I had to look it up....
