Need Help with water filter

We have a new Forest River legacy bought last summer. This is the first time we have taken it out for the season and we changed the water filter. Now the filter holder will not stay on when the water is turned on. It seems that the water pressure builds up and it pops it off. Any tricks to getting the filter holder to stay on. We followed directions on lining it up with the cap but it still pops off once water builds up in. Also this happens when it's not hooked up to outside water source and just the couch pump is in. Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Is there a lever or button to reset with filter change?

I have found that water on the threads is what makes ours pop off.
Dry off the threads real good inside and out, then use your filter tool to get the housing good and tight.
