Look under the pup and see where the water line from the fresh tank goes and that should help in locating the pump. The filter should be close by. In a hw276 it's in the cabinet next to the fridge.

So I guess I should ask. We ran antifreeze through the line so the filter case is full of antifreeze. People talk about removing the filter during the winter, is it OK to leave the case intact with antifreeze in it or do I need to remove it all together?

water filter in Rockwood

We have a 2304s Rockwood TT. Monster filter under bathroom sink. We found water pressure poor especially for showering. Suspected water filter and we wondered why all water coming into trailer had to be filtered. Took it out completely as we do not drink tap water. If we wanted to filter drinking water we would put a small filter under kitchen sink which would filter just your drinking water. Water pressure much improved when we took out big filter. Also, when winterizing with big filter you have to fill it up with antifreeze before you get it all through lines. Love not having this ugly thing that took up so much space under bathroom sink.

You can leave the case as is full of antifreeze. The filter housing is very thin and if you do not put a pressure reducer on the incoming water it will likely crack/flood your camper eventually. I took mine out after it cracked :~(
They are just about useless as most campground water these days is fine right from the tap.....

I had the dealer winterize my hw276 last year and they filled the case with antifreeze and left it but I have heard the cases leak (not sure how) so like many others I just removed it and use a filter that I connect to my drinking hose outside.

I had to remove my electric fire under the cabinet. It was barely accesible either through there or the basement walls. Poor design. I had the dealer tke it out and bypassed it and use external filters. Far more convenient and efficent.

When I winterize mine I open the low point drain valves then remove the Water Filter, housing and remove both hoses from the mouting housing. I then replace it with a short hose and male fittings. Next I close the hot (red) & cold (blue) valves at the back of the water heater and open the one on the vertical line between the hot and cold lines. Now i open all of the faucets and use a johnny chock on the toilet and using my air compressor with a tire inflator and an adapter that screws int the City water connection and blow all the water out of the lines ( make sure that you set the psi no greater than 100 psi. Now close all faucets and remove the johnny chock. Next I close the low point drain vales, remove the hose at the water pump(from the fresh water tank) and with a hose about 30 inches long with a connector that fits to the water tank ( a 90 deg. + a small hose clamp)and the other end with no connector put into the RV antifreeze bottle. Now turn on the pump to draw the fluid into all of the lines (you will need to open all of the faucets one at a time to make sure that only pink comes out as there will always be a little water left int the lines). you will need about two gals. to do it. In the spring just reverse the process. the first few times it may take about an hour to do it. Myself I can do it in about 20 min.
