Are you sure as in positive that it came with a water filter as standard equipment?

We just assumed that it did. Looking at paperwork and not seeing a pamphlet for one

Not having a factory installed filter is my choice to be honest. I simply use one of the in line filters that hooks up to the water hose feeding the RV. They can be picked up at Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes, or any hardware store not to mention Amazon.com.

Adding a filter is kind of a piece of mind item. When we go out we usually stick to bottled water for drinking and use the RV park water for dishes, showers and such.

An inline filter will cost anywhere from $14 to $20 if you choose to go this route.

Happy Camping,
Jon

And Oh Yea, Congratulations on your new Wildcat. The more time you spend in it, the more you will be impressed.

We had a 2007 Jayco travel trailer and wanted to upgrade to a 5th wheel and after doing doing extensive research we ordered a Wildcat 327CK in early April and took delivery in late May. The Forest River forum was a wealth of information that contributed to our decision. Wildcat Chris also contributed to our decision with his helpful nature and quick replies to forum members.

We went on a shakedown trip for 4 days and with the exception of a unlevel slideout the unit met our expectations. There is more storage area than we (there are two of us) will ever need. The layout is great, the shower is large and with 55-60-psi water pressure has a good spray.

We use the trailer approximitely 4 months a year. We are from NE Pennsylvania and are presently in western South Dakota. We pull with 2012 F250 4x4 Lariat super cab equipped with 4:30 gears. Our hitch is a B&W Companion. Being new to pulling a 5th wheel, I was very pleased with the experience. MPG though Pa, Ohio, Ind, Ill and the eastern part if Iowa was in the low 9's. From central Iowa to Rapid City, Sd the MPG was in the low 8's.

We would suggest the following convenience changes to the 327CK...A bathroom wall switch for the exhaust fan and a switch for the electric option of the water heater inside the rv.

Forgot to say the truck is equipped with a 6.2 gas engine.
