water filter , water heater

we have a new to us 2006 country coach allure 430. We are wanting to change the fresh water filters and the only one we can find is next to the hydro-hot not near the service bay. Is this the main or only filter.
Next with the hydro hot is there a hot water tank and if so where is it. Wear missing some manuals so we are having to learn from friends etc.
Any advice will be appreciated

The filter you speak of is probably the diesel fuel filter for the HydroHot unit. The "hot water tank" is actually a copper coil internal to the unit and can't be accessed through normal maintenance procedures. You can download the manual and purchase parts for your model at www.aquahot. com.

Off topic, but you should try to buy a copy of the Allure Manuals from another owner. After 10 years I still refer to my CC manuals for direction. The electrical schematics and chassis documentation are very helpful.

You might want to solicit the manuals on the Yahoo site, which is a bit more active than this IRV2 Country Coach forum.

You should have a fresh water filter in the service bay on the passenger side that has plastic covers over it. My water heater, filter, and so on is just behind the two pass through bays.

I have the same year and model that you have, but without hydro hot.

My water filter is on the passenger side in the last bay in front of the tires. It has three bolts that hold the cover down and swings up.

Our last rig as an '06 Allure 430 w/Hydro-Hot.

There was one water filter that was located in the Hydro-hot compartment on the rear wall -- white canister. We used to put a KDF filter in that and had an external sediment filter that we used on the water spigot.

With a Hydro-Hot there is no seperate hot water tank -- your heat and hot water are both from the Hydro-Hot.
