how to change the water filter in 2010 8314BSS?

We just purchased a 2010 8314 BSS Rockwood TT. We need to change the water filter and of course, no instructions ( that we can find). Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions on how to change it? Thanks.

First thing, make sure the water is off. I have a 2006 8314ss and the water filter is located under the entertainment center. To remove the clear cannister, place a small bucket under the cannister then with the cannister wrench that is supplied turn the cannister counterclockwise, once the cannister is loose then turn it with your hand until it comes off. The reason for the bucket is so it will catch any water that may spill from the cannister, Place the cannister in the bucket this makes it easier to handle from it's location to the sink.

Chevy02, in addition to the bucket I do place a bath towel on the floor just in case. With laying on my side and part way in the cabinet, handling can get a little weird and sloppy.

I've also heard of relieving any water pressure in the lines also helps when removing the canister or else the whole frame may twist and bend.
