It's under the bed in an enclosed box. The easiest way to access the filter is to remove the "false Bottom" under the bed. I removed the screws holding down the plastic tabs and reattached the tabs with Velcro. Upgrade furnace filters, 20x10x1, can be purchased at Ace Hardware stores around $5.00 each. I find that with heavy A/C or heat pump operation I need to change the filters monthly. Traveling with three cats may have some effect on the account of lint collected.

I called National about replaceing the filter for the basement air, and I was told that the filter is washable. He said that all you have to do is take the filter out, wash it, let it dry and put it back in

While we have a 2006 Tradewinds, the basement AC filter on our unit is located directly behind the air return grill which is located directly over the AC unit. Remove the grill and then remove the filter. Wash it out and replace.

Hope that this helps.

Safe travels.

Keep in mind Gdlow has a 2005 unit, not an '06

Only one filter, just different filter material for different model years. The "Permanent, washable" filters may be horse hair, which I consider to be minimal filtering material.

My 07 Pacifica the filter is under the dresser right behind the return grills. I took the 2 lower drawers out but still could not see the filter very well, however, I could feel it. It did feel like some kind of horse hair, I was not able to remove it as I could not see how it was fastened. I vacumed the heck out of it, and that made a big differance in the return air temp getting much cooler. Any suggestions on how to get it out ?
