True they fail,but the OP didnt know how to gain access to the Filter assy, thus NOT "Draining/Knowing" if the canister had "Water/Diluted A/F" which leads to Failure also! Some/Lots of Members don't even know "If/Where" their Water Filters are! Youroo!!

We got a new filter housing

I guess I missed the part when we picked it up about the filter housing retaining all it's water so it must have frozen and cracked. We bought a new one for our next trip and I won't forget to empty/remove it this winter! Cost was $51. I like the idea of bypassing it, since it needs to be serviced with a filter and emptied once a year you woud think the cover plate would have a snap design rather than screws. I may took at a modification for that as well.

Thanks for all your help. Everything works well now and we're ready!

Suggest you bypass it and use an external filter. If for no other reason than peace of mind.

2016 Plumbing Schematic

I have attached a schematic I drew up for the 2016 Rockwood Pop-up we have.
We have a water heater, sink and outdoor shower. I have not included the capped lines I assume are for a bathroom.

As far as the water problem: Both filters hold water even after the lines are drained, so these need to be emptied or removed for winter storage.

I hope this is helpful to others

X2 on ditching the house filter and go with the external. And don't forget the pressure reg.

All they installed on the 228 was the small particle filter with a metal (or aluminum) element attached to the pump's inlet.
However, the pump instructions do say to remove the element filter prior to winterizing with anti-freeze. However, the small particle filter with a metal element can remain.
