Changing water filter

Hi all, I just opened the blue (camco?) water filter housing located in the water are outside to see what type of cartridge i need to order for replacement. I closed the housing and also took out other water filters (refrigerator and under kitchen sink), and put them back. Now there is no water pressure in the sink in the bathroom. All other faucets (including shower and toilet flush) work ok.
Please help.

Some filter housings have check valves so they don't leak while changing. Perhaps you didn't get them back together properly. Also, remove the aerator on the bath sink and see if it's clogged with dislodged debris from opening/closing filter housings.

Thanks and God Bless. Aerator was plugged by small amount of lint. Alls well again.
How often do you recommend to change all filters for full timers.
The cartridge is inexpensive ($12) but other two filers (fridge and under sink) are about $32 each.

most filters will last 6 months. usually they tell ya on it. which as ft you prob be right on target with 6 months as amt of water going thru it, probably need to be changed then.

Glad to hear you found the problem.
As to how often the filters need to be changed, that is not an easy question to answer. Depends on how much water you use and what your water supply is like.
For me (not full time) I use a little cheapy inline filter from Wallyworld or various retailers at the pedestal to remove the big stuff. Found that my house filters last longer now.

I agree with dennis45, a cheaper filter, especially on the sink would probably be an economically good choice. First though, look online for filters, your price sounds like a typical RV parts store price. Type in the filter make and number to Google Shopping and see what turns up. It might be best to put a bigger filter on water system at entry to RV rather than 3 little ones. The fridge filter probably can go longest interval between changes since volume through ice maker is pretty low.
