What is this?

This came with my new TT but I don't know what it is or what it's for, anybody know? I looked thru the 1000 pages of documentation that came with the TT but I didn't see it.

Looks like a water filter canister wrench.

It is to remove the bowl of the water filter in your unit, be sure to hang on to the top of the housing to break the bowl loose.

I could be wrong.. (let's face it... probably am) but that might be your water filter removal tool.

I also have one that I can now throw away. I removed the inside water filter and canister and now use an inline filter on the water hose OUTSIDE THE RV.

Why did you do that? Does the inside filter not filter all the water? I have a filter that I used outside on my old trailer.

I was concerned about the canister coming open under pressure and flooding. Why have a canister that can be opened "inside" the trailer?

I just did not want to take a chance.......

There has been some threads about the bowl coming unscrewed by it's self.

Others have reported the bowl or the housing cracking.

No matter the reason the end results has been a unit full of water.

Removing the filter from inside is the better option.

Just keep in mind by removing the inside filter on a lot of units you will no longer be filtering your tank water.

Those that have the wrench can also position it on the canister so that the canister cannot turn and leave it there which is the best solution. Not hard to do with a little imagination.
