WOW - Easy way to remove water filter

I"ve read several ways but this has got to be the easiest and cheapest way. A 1/2 inch threaded pvc coupler. That's all u need and it costs less than a $1.

So what do you do when you use the fw tank?

Removing the the "In Camper" filter is a popular debate on the forum. Here's some reasons why -

1. The filters are expensive
2. The bowel design is flawed and several have reported it coming off and flooding their camper

The alternative that I plan on using is a inline hose filter that can be bought at Walmart. You could also use this on the hose when you fill your fw tank

Turn the pump on??

The water filter has no affect on using the tank

I went 20 years w/o one of these filters. I'm pretty sure that they're just another reason to charge me more for a TT.

The Water Pur filters are pricey - a good carbon filter runs about $10.

How so? Our bowl has been off/on numerous times and we're not detecting any issues that would be prompting us to remove the assy.

Indeed, but with the OP's new arrangement, water coming from the FW tank is no longer filtered.

I agree with Rockfordroo. Been camping since 1970, 10 tt's and only one had a filter. I am not overly paranoid about not having one. If one is there, that's nice.
