First RV (Cedar Creek) - new to us - but an '05 34RGTS

It's permanently parked in a campground on the lake. (though I'm thinking I'd like to take it out and on the road... but, maybe the next one... not sure)

Lots to learn, First item is how to replace the water filter (in storage compartment) - got a new filter, but do I have to relieve the pressure somehow before I unscrew the container? (it currently has no filter)

I've been watching RVGeeks and PetesRV on Youtube, (and my neighbor is Mr. Cormier from Petes) but haven't found anything specific to my PUR filter yet.

Thanks,
Garth and Theresa

Hi welcome to the forum.


OK; my unit is a 2016 Cedar Creek did not come with a water filter in the docking station. But to me the easiest way to relief pressure from your water lines is to turn your water off at the spigot. Crack the hose connection open and you will lose your water pressure. Then you can change your filter.


I do not know if the filter will filter holding tank water or not. But if I does turn the pump off and open a water faucet again the pressure is relieved.

not sure about yours specifically, but my Rockwood has a type check valve at the water inlet.. so simply unscrewing the water doesn't release the pressure inside the RV... but just opening the faucets.. lowest one, possibly the bathtub, would let more water out... but I would think you will still have a little residual water come out of the filter housing... sorry if I am incorrect though.. it's just like that on my unit.

Well, I popped in the filter this morning, basically shut off the main public water feed, relieved the pressure using the external shower nozzle, (right next to the filter but on the outside ) and popped it in. All seems to be good. Simple enough. Thanks for the help, and yeah, I'd love to go for a trip!
