2012 2306 mini lite

we are picking up our used 2306 next week from a dealer. I am not sure if there is a water filter built in to the 2012 year of the 2306? does anyone know and where would it be? I don't remember seeing one.

I'm pretty sure there is. My 2012 Roo 19 had one.

Trying to find it is the trick. Sometimes they hide them very well. It could very well be behind one of those thin panels they like to put in to "hide" stuff.

On the other hand, since the unit is used, the previous owner may have removed it. Lots of threads on the forum here about the filters breaking and flooding the camper, so many folks have removed them.

good to know. I will look for it when we go over the camper. They said they take 1 1/2- 2 hrs going over the camper. I think I may by pass it if it is there and use a outside filter.

if you dont have one consider yourself lucky....new elements are expensive [$40] plus it adds extra work winterizing.....walmart rv section has filters that fit between fill up hose and camper....about $15.

Usually located near the water pump. Just listen for the pump and it'll probably be there.

It's located in the front pass thru storage compartment, on the drivers side. You have to stick your head in and look up from the water pump.

Ordered a replacement water filter (WaterPur KW1) yesterday for $30 and free shipping. Used the search feature. Hanna Trailer Supply, I believe.

Look inside, the compartment door near the Hot Water heater, mine is on the left rear. To access, the thin,wall panel must be removed, maybe 3 screws ( note mine uses those square drive type). Once removed, you can access the water filter,( mine came with a big,white plastic removal tool) and the bypass valves for winterizing. Mine also has the water pump( also has a small glass screw off filter to trap maybe sand etc before entering the pump) on the floor next to the hot water heater, behind the same panel. I decided to leave my panel out and gained a little extra storage space. There is a 2 socket receptacle in there, one for the hot water heater and the other you could use as wanted.
Happy Camping !

Do you have to put a cartridge in the water filter?

If you want to use the cartridge filter it is about 9 1/2 " long.Water Pur KW1. I rinsed mine out and let dry then put it in a ziplock til after winter. Looks brand new and really did not use but about 30 days of camping. You could use an external type instead?
Not sure how or if you can compare these but I bet someone in this group can chime in?
