Where is the water filter located?

I just purchased a 2105 Rockwood ultra lite 8286ws. I know it's supposed to come with a water filter. There was even a filter in the kitchen draw when it was delivered. I searched everywhere but can't find the filter housing anywhere. Anyone have any ideas?

Spot your water heater from outside, then look inside for a removable panel where the backside of the water heater is.

Look in there.

If it is please consider removing it all together and put it outside.

Look in the garage on the street side, there is probably a short panel held on with 4 screws, remove the panel and you will probably find the water pump and the filter.

Sometimes it is underneath entertainment/TV center behind a door that has multiple hinges and one set needs to be removed, that is where mine is. Subwoofer could be there also.

Ohh. You know that's where I thought it would be because of the city water connection. there is a speaker in there. But I cant get that darn cover off. It has one hinge on the outside and looks like another on the inside. How does it come off ?

No I didn't take a look yet. I will tomorrow after work. It's supposed to be a bit warmer tomorrow. I'll let you know what I find. Thanks.
