Location of waterpur filter on 8287ss

My new 8287ss fifth wheel had been winterized when delivered in December. We are planning a trip in the next few weeks and I want to flush the water system and instal the water filter. Unfortunately, the dealer didn't show me where the filter holder was and I can't find it without taking off some panels. Before I do that does anyone know where I can find the filter receptical. Also, should I take off the panel in front of the water heater to get to the bypass values?

Water filter holder(canister) should be very near the water pump, where ever that may be.

I removed the false panel in front of the water heater the day I brought my TT home. Allows for more storage room.

Mine is under the closet and behind the toilet in the restroom and almost impossible to get to. I have to remove the drawer just to see it.

Thanks for the tips. I will check the panel under the bathroom sink. I know that is where the water pump is. Milzat, I assume it isn't a problem to place items next to the water heater once the panels are removed. I know that on our last trailer the water heater was not covered and we stored things right beside it. Are the panels just for looks on these trailers?

Gpsagent,
I feel the false walls(panels) are mostly for looks. I try to remove, or at least move-back the panels as much as I can. This allows for more storage space/access.
I've have no issues with storing things next to the Water Heater.

I have a rockwood 8314SS model, my water filter is located under the tv and behind what looks like a cabinet door. This cabinet door has 3 hinges, two on one side and one in the middle but no door knob. You can open this door by removing the center hings. You may have a couple cabinets like this.

Have you seen that the posts you're answering to were made last January?
