Replacement Water Filter

Anybody have any info on the proper replacement filters for the supply water filter mounted in the water bay of my 2013 Phaeton. Dimensions of the filter are ~ 9'3/4" x 2-3/4" - drop in filter cartridge with gasket on each end. Could not find info in the manual and there is nothing printed on embedded on the filter itself other than a "2" on one end and a "5" on the other. Looks like a micron and carbon combo filter.

I bet you can find a suitable replacement at Lowes or Home Depot, just check out the dimensions and look for a 5 micron filter. A lot less expensive than RV dealers.

I buy my filters at rvwaterfilterstore.com in bulk, 5 micron filter #A1208 F1 and I also have another filter straight off the water supply for sediment and that one is A1102 (RV Sed 5). Camping World carries the Hydrolift CW16007 carbon filter which costs about $35. The rvwaterfilter store filters are good quality and I have used them for 5 years with no issues. Since I change my water filters about every 2 months while the coach is in use, price makes a difference and I really can't see any difference except for the hard casing on the Hydrolife filter. Also, many buy their filters at Lowes or Home Depot as the price is very good, and the 10" filter fits your canister. So if you need a filter fast, go to Lowes. If you can wait a few days, go to www.rvwaterfilterstore.com and get you some.
