Been there, done that with the flooding

I didn't have any leak issues with the factory filter in our 2014 Roo 25RS but I replaced it with a similar type filter from Lowe's that used better, cheaper filters. Wasn't long before I had a major leak with that one and have since gone with the exterior / inline hose type filter to get away from anymore potential floods inside the trailer. To connect the two ends of pex left by the removed filter I used a flexible section of hose that was made to bridge a residential toilet tank to the wall, so far no more issues. It's a little long but just coils out of the way under the bottom bunk.

Ditto on what Turbs said.
I got mine at Lowes and they are very easy to use/install.

I went to lowes. Bought 1ft of plastic tubing. 1/2 inside diameter ,5/8 outside diameter. Then got a 1/2 coupler "push lock". It costed a whole 8 buck when I was done. 8 dollars to save my 20k camper from flooding well worth it. I posted pics. The first pic shows how I jammed the filter wrench in the cabinet to keep it from unscrewing. Second pic is with filter removed.

Heading to the Depot tonight to get my Forest River feature option enhancement kit (sharkbites). I'm thinking of rerouting the houses so I can expand the cubby since the filter will be removed. You know its one thing if these were new to me/us trailers, but they are brand new!!

Good idea on expanding the storage. Good luck with the removal of the filter. It's pretty straight forward. I am so happy I removed mine

It appears the bracket that holds the housing in was installed before they finished construction. The floor leading to the rear bunk is installed over the bracket.
