Water Filter Cartridge

Can someone post a link where you can get a replacement water filter cartridge the same as the one Newmar installs?

Like the ones that come taped to new units. I changed mine out with an “el cheapo” one and now want to see if I can get another one like the original and can’t remember the brand.

Or ... if someone has a "favorite" please post that information too.

Warpath the man who started IRV2 has them here:

Hydro Life C2063 Bacteriostatic Replacement Cartridge

A good place to start for all your RV needs.

BTW pick up a spare "O" ring or two they're a pain in the paduf to locate when you need one most.

water filter cartridge

You can find the cartridges at Walmart, Tractor Supply and sometimes in Lowes and Home Depot. Lots of types: paper filter and string wound types filter out rust and sediment. Carbon types filter out tastes and chlorine. Some folks say that you don't want to filter our chlorine because you need the chlorine to keep your water system disinfected. If you don't want the chlorine taste they suggest a filter at the faucet. However if you look at the package, none of the filters take care of impure/contaminated water.

May I suggest that if you're concerned about contaminated water, carry a spray bottle with some diluted bleach in it and spray the fresh water hookup at the campground before you connect to it. I've personally seen several instances of folks washing out their sewer hose by shoving it onto the campground fresh water hose bib. Yuck. And when I tried to courteously tell them how nasty and unsanitary that was, I always got blowback from them. Some folks just shouldn't procreate.

Hi skmwalden,
The original brand that came with my coach is Flow-Pur. My coach takes a #6 filter. They can be found at RV Filters

Same as on my 2012. Carry a spare, just in case.

This forum is sure the "go to" place for answers.

Steve --

When I need to figure out what to do to maintain our coach, I just trail in the wake of your posts. I have never been steered wrong.

I see that it's time to be thinking about replacing water filters. So ... when are the water filters due to be replaced as you see it? How about the ones elsewhere in the coach?

Thanks.

Deek

Generally acknowledged life is 3 months for the sediment cartridge, 6 months for the carbon. The first time through, I didn't much care for the look of my sediment filter at 3 months, so I change it at 2 months, and the carbon at 4 months, and that seems to be fine.

I've got a drinking water spigot at the kitchen sink. It has an inline filter under the sink that I truly cannot get to through the maze of pipes under there. I can't even deduce how it was installed, unless it was mounted before any of the piping. We don't use that spigot.

Mountain Aire Water Filter system

I have the same setup as in the picture above from skmwalden. I modified my system to overcome several of the problems cited in these discussions.

I purchased a clear plastic filter housing from WalMart (same length as original, DuPont brand I believe), moved the original filter to the left a bit, and mounted the new filter in the place of the original. I moved the inlet water line to enter the first housing (installing a spun filter in it to pre-filter trash and sediment (5 micron), clear to see its' condition, connecting the two housings with a nipple, exiting the original (second filter with a carbon filter for taste and odor) into the house water supply line.

Benefits: I use to use the spay bleach in my hoses but that eat up the brass end on my hose but now don't feel I have to do that; change my prefilter when it LOOKS dirty ( time varies with the dirt at each campground, have changed it daily because it WAS visiably dirty); only change inlet carbon twice a year and only change filter under refrig (icemaker, use the original microbial type) and under kitchen sink (water spigot, use original type also) during preseason servicing (January prior to winter trip south).

Outside, I use generic filters from Lowes (available nation wide, Whirlpool brand I think, they have several but some expensive), both types reasonably priced in 2 pack $10 or less. Shop internet for spigot and icemaker filters by part number. Prices vary widely.

I believe I read it on the site of one of the filter retailers. It was phrased as a recommended change interval-- 3 months for sediment, 6 months for carbon. Of course, there may have been an element of "marketing" in their selected time interval, but after their advised three months my sediment filter was pretty dirty looking, so they weren't too far off the mark.
