under counter filter winterize

On our new to us, used motor home, we have a Hydro Life 170QC under counter water filter. to winterize, I am told to remove filter first. The problem is that after looking on line, I find that I am supposed to have a hose with the same quick disconnects to put in place of the filter, i do not have this hose.
I cannot find this hose online as of yet and I would prefer not to buy a new kit because the cost and then all the extra parts not needed.

Does anyone know where I might find one of these hoses. If not, I may just try to put something together to make it work.

Thanks for any help.

Hi Rick, I'm not familiar with that brand of filter. If the canister unscrews, just remove the filter and replace the canister before winterizing. Hope this helps! Craig

You will need the hose to winterize the rig. Spend the money, buy the kit, it is the only way. They are available on line. I used Amazon, I think... The thing that you need is a piece of hose with ends like the filter.....
