You may be right about that, Tom. I honestly cannot remember if I tried a standard with my current trailer. Anyone want to buy one and check it out?

this is the first time i've heard of it being a special filter built just for FR.
This has happened in the last 2 or 3 years as I understand it. My cartridge has a nipple at the top with an o-ring on it. It is not flat on each end like a normal cartridge. I have the new canister on the way to change it out.

That is exactly the cartridges that I bought 2 years ago to use in my 233S. Worked just fine.
