Every RV owner should know that water supplies may have sediment in them. Over time this sediment can build up and start to wear away or clog your RVs plumbing. This may lead to costly repairs and time not spent camping because your RV will be in the shop. The simple way to reduce/slow down this process is by installing a water filter between your water source and your RV.
While we use multiple filters on our setup, this was our first line of defense. It is easy to hook up and comes with one filter. The average stated life of the filter is one season. Everyone’s season is different. Some people camp only one or two times per year, some go every weekend, and some (like us) full time. The longer you leave water filters on, the more clogged they will get. This will reduce the amount of flow to your RV.
This filter comes with the filter housing, one filter, an extension hose, Teflon tape and a wrench for opening the canister to replace the filter. We have had our filter for almost the entire 2 years we have owned this RV and have had no problems with it. Since we full time we change the cartridge approx every 6 months.
There were 2 things I was a little disappointed with and the reason I did not give this a 10 out of 10 rating. The first one was the extension hose was cheaply made and the second was there was no stand for the filter housing. We replaced the extension hose that came with it with one that we made with a better quality hose and we bought the stand which is sold separately.
