Residential fridge filter bypass methods

Our residential fridge, like most, has a water filter inside the fridge. With respect to filtering, I filter when water comes into the coach fresh tank, thereís a whole coach filter it goes through coming into the coach, then thereís the fridge filter. With the fridge filter running almost $50, has anyone bypassed it and put a cheaper filter right before water entering the fridge? Maybe on the backside where you drain when winterizing?
If so, got advice and maybe some pics?
Thanks!

Les, I don't have a photo but on our Allegro RED residential refrigerator there was no built in filter. I added a standard in line filter behind the fridge and it was easy to do.

Cheaper filters are avail from online sources.
Another possibility would be that you can just remove the filter. On a older kenmore ( whirlpool) if you removed the filter it sealed and just bypassed the filter .. if you can remove the filter without turning off the input water thatís a possibility

Residential fridge filter bypass methods

This one has a replacement plug I can put in place of the filter so the water keeps flowing. I like the idea of this filter just before the drinking spigot and ice maker, just donít like the cost. Think Iíll look online for other prices and pull the side-panel (behind fridge) to see whatís involved in placing a less expensive, larger one in there.

Much appreciated if you run across pics of your setup. Thanks for the feedback.
