Hanging ClearSource from ladder

My Flagstaff 21DS has the ladder on the same corner as the water inlet so it was convenient to keep the filter system off the ground. I found two utility hooks at the hardware store and drilled a couple holes and bolted them on. It's secured with an old cable bike lock I had laying around. A 4ft hose and two 90* elbows fit perfect.

The hooks are positioned so that the bottom of the ClearSource frame sits on a ladder rung when the hooks are fully seated on another rung above.

When not using the filter, the hooks make nice handles and it fits laying down in the slide storage or even up front in the driver side forward compartment

Good job I relocated my filter to the bumper I would recommend when you disconnect for travel or any period sitting you pull the filters and allow them to drain and dry.

for sure. i always undo the water first and pull the filters out to drain as much as possible while I tear down a camp. Then i assemble it but barely, so there is air flow into the canisters. When I get home I pull it apart again and sun dry it
