Water Filter on FBRS

Hello again. My DH and I have found where to place the water filter but can't get the water container what ever it's called open. The manual says turn counterclockwise. We are having trouble getting it to come off. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated!

Do you have one of these?

or one of these?

Try opening a couple (3-4) water faucets to vent pressure.

If you do break the housing do not worry much.

Be sure to put a towel or two under it.

We have a new CC 36RE and are having the same problem. We have use the wrench without success and even had a plumbing friend try to get it open. He stopped trying as he was afraid of breaking it. We'll try turning on a couple of faucets and try again.

Very ....

Was it a wrench you had or a filter remover?

Glad you was able to get it right.

Great, be sure to keep it handy and when you sell the trailer leave it for the next owner.

I just remove my water filter as the container backed out after a day as literally while I was taking to some friends. It was tight as from the pressure, backed out and blew off. Water everywhere. My advise...don't put one in. If you want one, use an inline filter at the hose bib.
