On a 2011 it should take just a cheap filter from Lowe's or HD. You can choose the mic size I think I have 5 micron but the filters are a standard filter. The new Berkshire have a more expensive filter and are harder to find.

If that's the one you have, & it's cheap, then you are lucky, my Forested takes a CCI-10-CA, normally $32. I have found them as cheap as $28.😥

The filter in the canister is two weeks old. We have lots of iron in the water. I use two filters. One before the water softener and the one for the whole house coach. I'm very happy with the setup and don't know why they went to that expensive filter setup.

It depends on your water fiter. If you have a KW-1, these are only available from Forest River, either from the factory, or some Forest River dealers stock them. Mine does.


Good luck.

I think the 2012 and newer use the expensive filter.

My Water Pur filter takes the same cartridge as the Camco EVO filter. Wally World stupidly stacks the filter assembly, but not the replacement cartridge. But you can order the cart. from their O/L site for delivery to the store.
Camco EVO Spun PP Replacement Cartridge - Walmart.com

I don't think so. Georgetown must have gone to that filter earlier. I don't see an advantage to it. Is it that much better system? I can get as aggressive filter as I want and they are cheap.

I never even put the filter in since we do not drink the water and in the winter just unscrew the canister and empty it and it should never freeze on you.

X2 - maybe to no-filters. Heard horror story at one campground where the had a water pipe break. After their repair, all kinds of sludge got into the lines of campers and extended stay residents.

Yes, removing filter gives better flow rates, but besides the water pipe problem, I am not sure what is in the campground water supply. That's why most do not drink it. Not sure that I want the MH to not be protected.

I am guessing that people that use campground water would be using a in-line filter on there hoses ??? I use a filter here @ home when filling fresh water tank with soft water from our well !!!

Well at least the mis-spelled "Part" in the title was with an "R" and not an "F".
