Water pump quit working after dewinterizing... AKA filter can go in wrong

Doing a few last minute things before a 3k mile Georgia to Texas round trip. Went to wash my hands after changing oil and pump wouldn't work. Great, what now? Grabbed a test light, got power to the pump, checked ground and it was good to. Stumped now..... grrrrr.. Bad pressure switch... pump died? Loosened filter bowl to see if there was any pressure, then dumped the water out of it and discovered the problem. The last thing I did to the water system last month was dewinterize, sanitize and flush and installed a new filter. Then parked it at the storage lot until today. Yep, the filter has a top, because the bottom has a plug in it. It was upside down and the pump was not running because it was holding pressure in that three inches of line between the pump and filter. Sheesh, was I glad it was that simple.
