New to my Roo

Hello everyone. We just finished our first season of camping in our 19' Forest River Roo. While we've experienced a bit of condensation in the camper when running the furnace in cooler temperatures, we have really enjoyed our experiences so far.

When it came to winterizing the rig, I used the air method to clear out the lines. However the water filtration container still has water in it. My question is, how do I remove the water from this canister? It looks like the can screws open whereby I can then remove the canister, but it doesn't seem to want to budge. Is there a trick to remove this canister? Any help or advice is welcome. Thanks Chris Paterson

you should have gotten a filter wrench with the Roo.
it's white and goes around the clear bottom.
pretty standard thing that you can get at HD or Lowes.

Yes, you'll need the filter wrench and all water needs to be removed. It will shatter if it freezes...trust me.

Hi and to the FR Forums! Hopefully winter will pass quickly and you can get out in your Roo again. In the meantime just think about all the upcoming trips you can take.

What are the winds like over there? It's so windy in SE Michigan. My husband is getting on a plane in Chicago in a hour.

Not so bad yet. I'm on a flight tomorrow afternoon so who knows by then. I travel almost every week without a great amt of delay. But I don't go through Chicago.
