Forest River developed their own filter, KW1, that can only be purchased through FR and possibly the actual manufaturer. There was talk about other companies begining to carry it. Either way, the replacement filters are about $29.95 plus shipping, several times the cost of a normal quality filter...shameless. Many have spent the $29.95 for a new cannister and filter, allowing them to buy replacement filters for between $5.00 to $7.00 each.
Here is a post that explains the issue on replacements:
