Is This a Suspect Water Filter

Is this a filter that is not worth having under my bathroom sink? It has the course threads. Click image for larger version

I'm fixing to go to Home Depot and Lowes and look for fittings to bypass this and yank it out

That looks like the same filter my MH uses for the entire coach. Other than the cost of replacing a filter, is there another reason you are looking to remove it?
Are you sure that filter isn't for your entire camper? Looks like it might be.

It is for the entire camper. Lots of people on here say to get certain filters unhooked because they will eventually unscrew themselves. I'm wondering if this is one of them. Several have had water damage from filters messing up

I wasn't aware of that problem. Now I am. The day is not wasted

Mine is outside, but I will definitely keep an eye on it now.


Thanks !!

LOL good one! I like mine except for filter price. I think the people that have the problem are the ones that aren't tightening them all the way. I'll send you mine when I remove it, I'm going to replace mine with a different type that doesn't use $40 replacement filters.
