Water filter replacement.

Where are you buying the replacement filter cartridge for the water filter in the sabre's. I thought about just deleting it all together. What do you think.

We bypassed it because installing the new filter was a pain. I use a blue torpedo type filter at the campground spigot and a pitcher filter in the fridge so in essence we are double filtering.

I think I am going to delete it to. It's more of a pain then it's worth. We always take drinking water with us. So all we use the campground water for is showers, washing dishes and flushing the toilet.

I never installed the filter. It's too restricting and as mentioned, use the blue torpedo shaped filter. It filters a lot of chemicals, too.

I also use the blue torpedo type water filter but in conjunction with the stock water filter system. I am thinking of changing the stock water filter for a GE smart water systems filter...Cartridges are much cheaper and can be bought almost anywhere (Home Depot, Walmart and Lowes). Also, it has the added bonus of having a 3 position lever... Bypass, Off and through the filter modes. I put one on my prvious TT and it was a lot easier to winterize because the clear housing didn't have to be filled with "pink" fluid.

Just saw this on TV:

Products:¬*Basic Whole House Quick-Change System, Large Capacity

Not sure how you'd bypass it to winterize, though.

Additiona information

Below is a link that will provide insight as to why many eliminate the FR filtration system that have been installed since 2012. Pretty good money make for them, selling a $5.00 filter for $29.95 plus shipping = $39.95.

Deleting the filter is going to be one of my first mods on my new sabre.
I have and will be using the blue inline (on the water hose ) water filter. Much easier to use and winterize.
We also use bottled water to drink.
