Hi. Newby here. Just bought a used, new condition, Surveyor SP-186. While searching to find the water filter (don't think there is one altho there was a brochure) I did discover that water heater bypass valves are installed (good!) and there is another valve to allow suction of antifreeze from the bottle (good again!) BUT I also found that the city water inlet line was about a foot too long, and therefore 100% kinked right inside the trailer. Guess the prior owners didn't use it much! Pulled it out, cut it off, and recaulked the fitting- now it should work!

TYhe filter might be hidden.
ine was in the cabinet under the bathroom sink, but you had to unscrew an access panel to get to it. I have since removed the filter.

The filter in my trailer is also hidden, needed to remove an access panel under the pantry.
