Photos are blank?

Just checked. They are there, small but there. The shape of them is really the thing I was pointing out. The one on the left is the CC1-C10 type.

I will look tomorrow not sure which one I have but maybe next spring I will switch to a Camco exterior canister filter, I already use a Camco online filter that I put on the Water Pressure Regulator.

Mine came with the KW-1. The filter housing on mine has a label denoting the type.
My old 2008 Shamrock 183 came with the CC-1 filter and never had a problem in 7 years of use. Replacement filters were very cheap. But, the CC-1 housing was made of much thicker material than the KW-1.
Undecided about what to do for 2016.

Any tips on replacing filter ? Do you need to soak/submerge it overnight?

No. It can be put in the housing dry. Make sure you turn off the water supply and open a tap to release the pressure in the water lines before trying to remove the canister.

Well guess what, there was a crack in the housing when I put in the new filter and it leaked water - not sure if it was there before or as a result of loading a filter. It's near the screw on location. I took the filter out and it don't leak anymore.

I have bought a number of camco products - you think they're superior?
