I am glad this thread was started. I am going to remove and bypass mine next. I see it as a fail point as well. And I always filter before it enters the RV so it isn't needed. Will make winterizing easier too!

Mine is under the sink in the bathroom, and at this point I see no reason to remove it. It is pretty easy to service it.

People are going to do what they are going to do, but this is only partially true. Under this method, the water coming out of the FW tank is not filtered. It's only filtered going into the tank. If the tank is pristine clean, it's not an issue. But if any organisms or other impurities are in the tank, they will not filter out. Some people say it doesn't matter to them because they don't drink it (which also means don't feed to pets, or use for cooking unless fully boiled).

I was always so sick from food or water every times I went to southeast Asia. My wife said I'm too clean (filter this and filter that). May be germs would do some good for me? I'm not a doctor just having fun

Good point about coming from the tank. We only use our tank for showers and flushing. We keep water for cooking and coffee separate. So that works for us.
