Parker Dryer for aux compressor in bay below driver

I have a Parker dryer in the bay under the drivers seat, cannot see a model and cannot find anything about its servicing in the CC manual. Can anyone tell me what model it is please, and possibly a link to the user manual?

I have one of those on my coach. From my years as a respiratory therapist who worked with equipment that needed dry compressed air, it looks like a pretty simple water trap to me. I would think parts for it would be available at places that sell air handling equipment. Perhaps Grainger.

Are you wanting to replace it? I am curious if it requires periodic servicing or just a visual check to make sure any water in the bowl is emptied.

Please share the source of any filters. I have just recently gotten this rig and have been servicing everything that wasn't serviced by the dealer and the little water trap/dryer has not been done.

thanks.

Thanks for the link.

I did check mine this evening. I was able to unscrew the plastic bowl but cannot remove it from the dryer due to a fitting on the bottom that hits the compartment floor. It looks like I will have to remove four screws at the top and release the entire dryer from the bracket to get the bowl free to replace the filter. I did notice some water in the bottom of the bowl.

I thought this was an exhaust for water, what purpose does the filter serve? Mine has a solenoid on the bottom that opens at some point to eject the water, there was some calcium visible on the low portion of the glass, which l have cleaned occasionally.

The filter extracts dust and other air borne contaminants as I understand it. Not sure how the water is extracted.

I foled with mine a lot.The valve on the bottom opens when the compressor stops to expell any accumilated water in the bowl.
There is a check valve on the outlett side which stuck open last year and I replaced.
