Arrived at location and now two water leaks

It seems the ADC filter cartridge (under sink) just split on me. And when I pulled the the cartridge and put the plastic plug in its place, it wont seal completely.


And the handle on the shower just popped off. When I screw it back in place, the water can't be shut off completely. So I am basically without water..

I guess I can find a dealer in about 50 mile radius that will have the filter. I guess I will check with them on the shower handle also. Otherwise I am sol

You HR Scepter is a quality coach, are you sure it does not have a Manablock manifold in the basement that can shut off any of the circuits. Trace your red and blue hoses and it should lead you there. The manifold will have red on one side and blud on the other with a T key to shut off each valve and water bay area. You should be able to isolate the leak.

Too dark to track down anything now. Even if I can shutoff the shower and sink, im still not gonna be able to go very long with only the toilet and lavatory.

but thanks - I will have a look at the wet bay.

Not to mention I must have gotten to close to something on the drive down bc now I have a scratch on one of the bay covers.

No obvious way to cut off cold water to filter or to hot side of shower. Lots of hoses running from wet bay but very few cutoffs. One for toilet and for water heater. Dont see others.

And on top of that the furnace did not light last night - blower runs for a few secs and then stops - shows 1 flash 3second pause - airflow fault.

That water filter shouldn't be hard to bypass. Just get a nipple and screw the incoming and outgoing lines onto that.

And if the shower fixture isn't too hard to get to, unscrew the line(s) to that and block those off as well.

I removed that ADC filter years ago and made up a bypass kit to put in its place. We never drank any of the coach water no matter where we were located so really didn't need the ADC filter or the expense of the filters.

I later installed an Ice Maker Water Filter in the same location.

I find it hard to believe that your Scepter does not have a Manabloc water distribution system where you can isolate various water supply locations.

Photos included.

Nope, nothing like that in my wet bay. Even pulled the cover off the inlet/refill side.

Manged to get the filter isolated - there is a strange looking black cutoff at the top.
And I shutoff shower by just flipping the shower head to stop flow. Doesn't look like I can fix them too much better as it stands now.

If you have one it wouldn't be in your wet bay. I guess Monaco started to cut costs and cheapen out by not putting the convenience items in coaches after 2002.

Can't,find something like that anywhere. Filter housing still leaked so i just moved the inlet hose direct to sink faucet.

Still got an issue with furnace and shower but no,leaks now and most important functions are avail.

On my Dynasty the water distribution manifold is only accessible by crawling into the compartment in front of water bay and sliding open two access panels where you can gain access. You shower control is probley a MOEN which is repairable, parts at Home Depot. Just did mine, not easy as Delta but doable. Good Luck, Dave
