Installing inline water filter...

Hello all,

I got a new 5th wheel. Has a nice water control panel. Different than what I am used to. I have been using a household inline water filter in a bucket below the camper for years. Now I have the option to install it inside.

How in the world do you get those darn hose clamps off?! I recently helped my stepson fix a leak in his camper and the clamps were the same. I had to get very destructive to remove the clamp to replace a hose...

Those clamps are a one-time use crimp on type. A pair of wire cutters (aka dykes) will cut them off. Replace them with the correct size stainless steel hose clamps and youíll be fine.
