Need Pics of Outside Mount for Water Filter

I know lots of members have moved their water filter outside for various reasons. I'm considering doing the same due to the contortions required to replace the filter in the factory location.

If you have mounted yours outside, can you please post pics of your setup.

My city water inlet is on the rear corner behind the ladder, so I'm thinking about a mount to hang on or under the bumper.

You could also eliminate or bypass your current filter setup and use an inline filter at the city water connection. It's what I did.

That's an option but the blue Camco inline filter doesn't offer the same filtration level as the OEM. I just ordered a couple F1Pb filters from RV Water Filter Store: Standard Filter Canisters for Whole RV that I want to use in the OEM filter housing.

The stock filter housing is in the bottom of an outside corner cabinet, behind the toilet, so it's pretty difficult to change the filter. I'd like to relocate the housing outside.

X2 on the blue torpedo in-line filter for city water connection. If not I flush the freshwater tank every two weeks...

I don't have a picture, but I measured and drilled two holes in my bumper. Put long bolts thru with double nuts and then used a wing nut to secure my filter plate. Just remove wing nuts to mount or remove plate. Screw in filter canister, hook up water line from post with quick connect(which has my regulator inline) and you are ready to go. I have a short permanently attached line from the filter "out" that goes to the city water "in".

If someone really needs a picture, I'll go take one later, just ask.
