Justbwondering if someone can help

I purchased a 2013 Sandpiper 355RE , and need some advice since the manual is only good for fire starter,does anyone know where to buy a full manual for this unit ?

I have been having terrible trouble trying to remove the water filter, seems it will only turn about an 1/8 of an inch, can't remove it completely to change it, any advice ?
Also the small 12 volt light above the kitchen sink just burnt out , how does one remove it too change it ?
The globe is so small can't get my hand inside the globe to remove the small bulb, or does one have too remove the globe to change the light?
Anyone can help this new owner ?
Thank you

Your right the manual they give you is junk. As for a full blown manual Good luck I have never seen one. As for your water filter relieve all your water pressure first and try it. When you reinstall it try some Vaseline on the oring. Hopefully someone can help you on the light situation.

And congrats on your Sandpiper

there is no such thing as a full manual.
most RV manufacturers only provide a generic RV manual.
no such thing as a model-specific manual, not even RV-type specific manual.

you may have inserts for specific things in your trailer, such as instructions for the awning, along with manuals for specific items.

Still working on the "Full Manual" for my camper. It has since become known, affectionately, as the "Herkbrary." Approaching 5 gigabytes of "stuff."

To anyone that has a hard to remove 12volt lightbulb, I took a piece of 1 inch tubing , slide it over the lightbulb, and it came out easy

Some of those hard to reach places makes this so easy to reach

I was tryingbtomget my fingers up there to grt itvout and could not. Aboutvto call DW when i just stuck my thumb up and was able to flick it out by catching the base of the bulb with my thumb.

By the way, the dealer was two dollars cheaper then Lowes for a replacement
