Winterizing problem

We own a Tiffin Allegro. To winterize we added the antifreeze but removed the water filter but left the water filter cover in there for the MD winter. The cover cracked the bottom out of it. What should we have done instead? If we are to remove the filter cover also, how do we plug the hole?
Thanks

All that is needed is to empty the filter housing "after" you have finished winterizing.

Depends on what filter you're talking about. Many coaches have a couple of filters. Most water pumps have a filter. If you're talking about the one on the water pump, the answer provided by jarwwiebe above is correct. If you're speaking of a different system, you need to provide a better description of your system.

In the future, drain all liquid from the coach, fresh etc,etc, open the low point drain. Open all faucets, attach an air hose to your fresh water hose and blow out all remaining water. I do this every year, do not use antifreeze, wife says she can taste the difference. drain the water heater. your done.

Same here and never had a problem and then you don't have to flush your system as much to get the bad taste out of your system.
