My internal water filter decided it wanted to unscrew it self and leak all over my new floor. So.... I cut it out and replaced it with some straight tube. I will now use external filter. Works great. Glad I did it!!!!
That is just crazy. I read to many of these stories on here! That is why the first thing I did to my brand new 2016 was cut the pex at both sides of the filter and use a sharkbite coupling to couple the lines together. I had enough slack in the pex that I didn't need to add any tubing.
Ya I should have removed it soon as I got it but I had no idea about some of this stuff. That is cool u didn't have to add any tubing. I only had to add about 8 inches. Sounds like they need to add better filter systems with the new campers. Owell, external filter and I am happy camper again
Isn't it nice to pay for the "optional filter" only to have it flood your camper and have to remove it and throw it away. There should be a recall and additional warrantee time due to the flooded floors. During my PDI they couldn't even show me where it was to install the filter, probably didn't want to disturb it and get me out of there before it fell off.
It's amazing how they take ur money and they know it's a crap design. The more I think about it the happier I am now it is removed. I will never flood again due to a stupid filter. I usually bring bottled water with for drinking and cooking so we didn't really need it any way. But I did pick up an external filter just to be on safe side.
