I Should Have Looked More Closely...

At the model on the lot.
If I had, I would have told them to not install the in house water filter. It had to have been installed prior to the cabinets being installed. It's at the back of one of the base cabinets in a corner...
GRRRRRRRRRRRRR...

Now I'm hoping that by using an external filter the house filter will last longer and I won't have to change it but once a year - or less.

One more thing on the winterizing checklist!

If you use external filter remove internal one.

I can't without removing the cabinets which is the whole kitchen or the rear outer panel of the trailer.

What I meant was just the filter not the housing.

Really?!? Wow! Thanks. I was thinking that the filter itself had to be in there...
I gotta check that out!

I see what ya mean!
Take the filter out. Rv places such as camping world makes
A block off plate that you put in the top of the canister
then no water goes in it. Then just use your external filter.

Does the filter not last long? The fact that it had a filter was a selling point for us ... I hope we're not disappointed!!

The filters are usually good for a full year.

^True.
I don't like the location - it's a great opportunity for drips, leaks and spills when changing.
Am I a whiner?
