2015 Flagstaff 27RLWS WATER FILTER REMOVAL

Atempting to remove our water filter from our TT. Have heard way too many leaks occuring from them, so we have purchased an inline type that attaches to hose outside. What is best way to remove the original filter?
Thank you

I would leave it in and check for leaks before removing it.

Mine didn't leak but was so hard to change the element or remove for winterizing that I removed it and mount it on the outside (all this on last tt - new tt didn't have one so just attach filter to water hose)

Ours never leaked, but, I had to raise it to enable getting the tool on it to remove the filter housing, still works fine.
