if you have found your water pump then you will normally find your water filter.
they are normally are side by side .

your dealer should have showed you all this ! dealer fail !

I have a FR Cardinal FW and my filter is in the docking station. But, I think with so many brands, it could be almost anywhere.

Don't be surprised if your pump and filter are behind a door that has hinges on both sides. You will have to take the screws out of the hinge to open it. You should be able to locate the pump by turning it on and listening for where the sound is coming from.

Mine is behind a door that has 2 hinges on one side, and one hinge on the other. After I took the screws out of the hinge on the jamb side, I took the screws out of the door side and put the screws back in the jamb side. Now, the door stays closed by friction, but opens with just a tug.

You will probably need to remove a false panel to find the filter. It is usually close to the outside filler lines. Looking at your floorplan I would guess it is behind a panel in the kitchen or below the pantry. Follow the sound of your pump.

I finally found my pump, but I did not get a filter that I was to get when I bought the trailer 1 year ago. My pump is under the entertainment system in the "dinning room" behind a filler panel.
Now just to figure what type of filter to put in.

Are you saying the filter housing is installed but you did not get the filter to put in it? Easy to find at local big box or Camping World or RV dealer.

Or, that there is not filter installed? If no filter installed I would just pick up an external housing & filter system. Easier to get to and maintain. See examples at the Camping World website.

Mine is under the sink outside the bathroom. Had to remove the screws on the right side of door. They are square head screws on mine.

There was nothing installed, I was told for a year that it was there I just had to find it.
Thanks I will go and check out CW right now.

I have the same problem. My Rockwood 1809s came with the water filter but I don't know where to install.

Since I purchased this 2011 TT used, didn't have the benefit of dealer walk-thru. Does anyone know where to install on this specific TT..?
