2017 Sunseeker MBS water filter model

We ordered a 2017 Sunseeker MBS 2400R and should be picking it up in early October. Does anyone know what on-board water filter model is coming with the new units? Our Flagstaff had the infamous FR1 which has been known to blow off the canister when you least expect it. If it is the same, I will have the dealer remove it and just use the outside the rv filter that I have now.

We live in Connecticut but are picking it up in Ohio and are taking all of our camping gear with us to leave from there for our "shake down" cruise. We will be camping near the dealer until all of the bugs are out of the new unit. (I am hoping that there won't be too many.) I don't want to carry the filter equipment with us if I won't need it. We have enough stuff to pack without taking extra.

Regardless what "Type/MFG" filter it is I would use your "Outside Setup" Location from the Factory is a "Real Pain/Mess"! Youroo!!

I removed mind from MBS 2401R. It would be so messy for servicing this filter.

Raptor, I agree and will probably use my outside filter also. Do you remember what model filter it was? Inquiring minds want to know.

Thanks

Raptor, That's great, thank you very much. I was hoping for that model.

I will probably still remove it eventually, it's in a lousy location, but at least I don't have to worry about it blowing off on my first trip. There are enough problems with a new unit to think about.

We've used it for over 7000 mi. and 29 nights on the road and never an issue. The location isn't the most convenient but never had any trouble getting it in or out either for winter and spring chores.
