When you replace your whole house water filter, ensure that you get one that will be more free flowing than the original. I had the same problem and replaced the filter with one with more flow and now don't have to wait an hour or more to get tanks full.

Wait a minute. Your words "Let me first answer the questions posed to me: I bought the coach new in Nov. 2003. It has always been a problem filling the water tank AND getting adequate pressure off the mains. I have had the filler valve replaced with no improvement."

Then you add: "It was a clogged whole house filter - I really got into something nasty because hat filter is only 4 months old."

Aren't you contradicting yourself? So was it working in the beginning or not?

Sorry Charliez - didn't mean to take so long to get back to you. You are correct in questioning whether the system worked properly in the beginning. In hindsight, I don't believe it worked as well as I'd like it to. Let me explain - From day one I thought it took an inordinate amount of time to fill the tank, but I had no basis for comparison as this was a new coach. What I did notice was that as time went by, it took longer and longer to fill, and changing the filter did not seem to make any vast improvement.

What did make a vast difference was to remove the filter completely and then replace the housing. Then, the flow rate soared. So, it appears that the problem lies in the flow rate of the filters I have had installed. What I need to do now is find a filter that has a fairly rapid flow-through rate.

Does this explain it any better?
