I have a 2306. The water filter location is different if you have a Murphy Bed or not. Do you have a Murphy Bed?

Remember mine is a 2015. Yes, I have the Murphy Bed and we added a 3" memory foam topper that still allows it to close easily.
Feel free to ask me any more questions.

We didn't have one in our 2011. Perhaps they added one in 2012.

Our 2306 is a 2014 built in March of 2013. It has the Murphy bed and the internal water filter is exactly as KeepTravelin describes. Take out the flimsy wall in the back of the storage compartment on left back. The water filter is right behind the water heater. I bypassed mine too. I picked up the fitting at Lowes Hardware. 4 bucks or so.

Now, 2 very slight down sides to using an external filter.

The first is that according to some research read somewhere on this forum the blue external filter most people buy does not filter to the level as the internal one. It gets the crude out but doesn't filter for taste. We always bring a couple of gallons of drinking water so we wouldn't know. I don't think that is a deal breaker and if you want you can get better outside filters than the common one everyone gets.

The other point is that the external filter does not filter the water you use in the fresh water tank. So it's a good idea when you fill the fresh water tank to fill it using the new external water filter you just put in when you eliminated the internal one. Get it?

This one has a Murphy bed. We will bring gallon jugs of water for drinking and road flushes if needed! Figured it wont hurt to filter the water some before it gets to the pump and water heater. Sounds like they put the filters in real easy access places! ha ha

I now buy the $10 filter at Walmart instead of a $40 filter from camping world. plus it just serves as a anti-freeze reservoir in the spring it's hard to get the anti freeze out of there. I just cut it out and bridged with blue pex.
