I have a 2019 sunseeker 3010 DS when winterizing the unit how do you keep RV antifreeze out of the water filter housing

The only way is to install a bypass. When winterizing I take out the cartridge and put in a empty water bottle with cap on to take up some space so it doesn't use so much antifreeze.

I used to take the filter out and let it fill up however when done I would remove the filter casing and dump the antifreeze down the drains. If you go the empty bottle route put it in upside down so the cap cannot get wedged into the fittings. Does not happen on all but some filters are about that size at the top.

Now I removed the filter and use an inline one...so much easier.

remove the filter and just fill up the canister. what is its capacity, maybe a quart? at $3/gal for antifreeze that is only $.75 to fill the canister. i've seen bypass plates for around $10 that will let you save that $.75. what's that, a 13 year payback?
