I took the filter out of my TT and threaded the two 1/2" PEX male thread adapters that went into each side of the filter into each side of a 1/2" brass ball valve so if for some reason I need or want to shut off the water to the camper plumbing fixtures I can without having to go out to the hydrant (my filter was located in an easy to get to cabinet). Would still have water press. up to that point but the rest of the camper would not.

Here's my mod.
Works great. After disconnecting from the water supply, the pump will pull most of the water out of the canister.
I maybe could have used a longer hose, but I didn't want to restrict any water flow

If you put a glad kitchen catcher garbage bag around the filter housing before taking it off, no mess the little bit of water goes in the bag. We like the filter and for the 20 or 30 bux a year for a new carbon filter, it is worth it.

One of the ball valves I bought does not work. Does it matter which way it is mounted?

I broke the housing for my filter once while on a camping trip. I just disconnected the water lines from the filter and it turns out one side is male ant the other is female and they connected together. At least that is the way it worked on our 2008 rockwood PUP
