I would remove it while sterilizing.

While de-winterizing and sterilizing, my factory filter started doing the dreaded self-unscrewing. I had always been amazed at past posts about these unscrewing themselves until I witnessed it myself twice. I removed the filter and replaced it with a push-fit hose on the pex so I can always easily remove and replace with another filter system onboard if I wish. Instead, I bought Whirlpools' inline exterior hose mount filter to filter the water as it is being pumped into the tank or in the city water hose instead of taking chances with flooding the camper.


I had bought a spare filter for the camper when we picked it up new, and would be glad to sell it, as the factory filter housing is already at the dump. PM me if interested.

In the last two RVs I have removed the filter system and hooked the lines back up. Think about it. Do you want a stagnate water pocket sitting in you camper
with old water that might stay there for a couple of weeks or more before you
use the camper again? And time to winterize, it fills up with antifreeze that must be flushed out, maybe? I do not worry about filtering water when camping. I have more fun things to do. IMO, If you are worried about filtered water, use a portable filter on your water hookup.

Earlier in this thread I was excited about installing it and using it. But then had it unscrew in our first trip and flood the camper. Removing it is our next mod.
