Just blows me away by who thinks of this stuff?
Mine isn't in the electric area luckily. It's under the couch with the furnace and water pump, just horribly placed over the water lines.

If it's an FR1/KW1, you might want to remove it before it cracks and floods your rig. Lots of threads here reporting this problem. A 67 cent coupler from Home Depot fixes the problem.

Thanks for the tip on the bag. Obviously I never thought of that.

Is the coupler you used specifically made for pex? I hate that filter. We have to get our son to remove it as it takes a contortionist. I appreciate your adding pictures so we can picture exactly what's needed.

Did you try opening the out side drain for a few seconds? Also do you have a winterize valve that is set to winterize it should be turned to operate.

I'm s fulltimer. After using my HWH for 4 years one morning hot water would not come out. I found a check valve on the hot water output side that had frozened shut. It's used to keep antifreeze from fill-in tank when winterizing. I pull the check valve and all was good. Suggest you first open the HWH pressure relief valve and see if water comes out. If so then your input is fine it may be this check valve on output. If water does not come out of pressure relief valve then water is not getting to the tank. Hope this helps.
