Nice job on those quality installed water pipes. It looks like the Amish guy was off that day and the crackhead did the work on the water pipe.

I to had to bypass my Water Filter on my 27RLWS. Never could get it to stay on after dewinterizing. The filter housing has little teeth that grips the bottom half and if they get damaged the lease little bit it want stay on. I would have probably taken if off any way for more pressure. I took the one off my old Flagstaff and had more pressure.

Do y'all travel with the wardrobe loaded or unloaded? I was concerned about the over hung weight.

Another leak point is inside of the compartment where the PEX tubing is attached to the water inlet; when you tighten the fitting to the hose on the outside you can cause the fitting on the inside to turn and loosen, it then drips water that will run into the bedroom.

Thanks for that tip Danny. I'm guessing there are a few little things to keep an eye on here as there. It's good to know we are all sharing our fixes so we can head off a major flood. By the time we get this one completely overhauled it will b time for a new one (lol).

My filter housing has not leaked, but after reading about it, I wrapped it with duct tape to the housing so it can't unscrew on its own until I remove it completly

These trailers can be tongue light based on my weights on the scales so loading up front should not be an issue and will only improve towability.

Same here - no leaks so far and I intend to keep it installed and enjoy double or triple filtered water. That said I will make a point of checking on it periodically for tightness. Also, the housing type is such that there are several similar designs out there and one choice could be to change out the unit for one that is better designed and resistant to becoming undone.

Same to you ... campsite looks great! Wish I was camping but I prefer not to go out on holiday weekends due to the crowds. But that could change ... Trailer is still in the shop and hopefully should get out on Saturday. Already booked a small trip for weekend after next.
