we had the filter problem, it turned out to be a faulty pressure regulator and high campground pressure.

Same here. 3006WK. I did not install the filter. I use a pressure regulator and an inline Camco filter on my drinking water hose connected to the city water hookup. I put the filter at the camper inlet after the hose. Some people put the filter at the campground water spigot before the hose to the camper. IMHO, those filters do a good job. I typically use two per season and have never (knock on wood) had problems.

The comco regulators that have a blue sleeve contain lead make sure you get a orange one . The regulator and water filter should be placed before the hose going to the RV . This way your hose is protected from to much pressure and contaminants.

Don't freak out too much about the lead. It's not an issue, except for the lawyers! The amount of lead in those regulators is so small if you ate all of it it wouldn't hurt you, let alone the infinitesimal amount that MAY dissolve into the water.

I talked at great lengths with the Filter supplier to Forest River at the store at Goshen. 80% of the problem is the filter is not seated correctly. The filter needs to be be pushed into the top part firmly before screwing the housing on. I have had 2 trailers and not issues with the filter. Not to mention tightening the housing with the supplied wrench.
