Water filter

new 2015 Flagstaff Shamrock 21DK. Just de-winterized her and got all antifreeze out of the lines. However....I can't seem to figure out how to get this sump loose so I can put a filter in it. As you can see in attached pic it has antifreeze just sitting in bottom of it. Is there a trick to getting it off?

You should have a circular plastic wrench that fits the canister to loosen/tighten it. Make sure you hold onto the blue/grey part when you loosen/tighten it. Also recommend putting some silicone paste on the O ring after you install the filter. Smear the silicone paste on the entire top lip of the canister.

Be careful removing the canister, the tech at the dealership stripped out the screws holding the mounting bracket. They actually did me a favor as I was going to remove it and move the water filter outside the storage area anyway.

Thanks Ron....after reading some more on here about them I will likely do the same thing and just remove the canister and put a bypass in and just do the hose filter outside. Much simpler!!

Also let off on any pressure you might have in your lines...open a faucet and remove your water hose...then use the wrench....sometimes I've had a problem getting mine to turn and it's from pressure on the lines.

Good tip on how to remove. My water filter says The Water Pur Company model CCI-10-CLW filter CCI-10-C. I can't find the CCI-10-C filter. Has it been replaced with another part number? Where do you buy it? I have a 2011 Wildwood trailer. Thanks from a another Newbie!

I got mine @ Lowes, but it looks like they quit carrying them. Found 3 Lowes replacements on ebay and bought them, so now I have 4 spares.

You probably realize that any flow thru 10 inch filter will work. Does not have to be the one specified. I use the least expensive charcoal 2 pack filters from Lowes. No odor and sediment. Just saying.

Btw, DO NOT use that spanner wrench to tighten the canister back on. Finger tight only.
