I could have sworn that I seen someone explain how they did this in a post, but I can't seem to find it now. I actually considered just moving the water filter location to just inside the access panel under the rear bunk, but I'm not sure that changes the problem a lot. I also want to know if I have to use compression fittings on the new hoses to do this or can I just use regular hose clamps?
That was me after mine exploded and started gushing water into our 233S. We replaced it with a whole house canister in the same location but you can easily move it to the outside.
Cut out the lines that are in there on either side of the current filter. I personally used shark bite connectors with a piece of pvc. Very simple to do.
a friend of our loves the filter that he bought one as well and connected it to the exterior of his and setup the filter with gardena quick connects.
Any questions let me know.
