as mentioned, the water filter, water pump is hidden behind a black panel next to the mega storage. I took the black panel off today and noticed 2 holes on top. Through one of the hole I can see the bathroom heater register... So Im thinking, this is how Thor keeps water from freezing during winter camping.... I was thinking of keeping the black panel off, but now I think the black panel have a purpose of keeping heat in this area to keep the tanks from freezing. I will cut a slit in the panel as a sight glass for the water tank instead of leaving it off.

My water filter on my 2013. 33.2 was in the water bay right beside where your sewer dump is. I deleted mine so it don't mater at this point. I don't use one.

I deleted my black panel too. But I'll check those holes. Haven't noticed that. Probably right on that. Now I got a project for tomorrow. Probably take me all day. Lol

Does not make sense to have the water filter hidden behind a panel. It should be on left side of utility bay easily visible and accessible for changing the filter and for taking it out when winterizing.

Why would you not want to filter your water?

I had the heater on earlier in the year and noticed the bathroom floor was warm, the bathroom was the warmest of all the room... during the summer with the AC on, the bathroom was the coolest room. If they could only fit a bed in there.

Some people dont drink the water and would rather have better water pressure. It also requires more maintenance for winterizing.

Agree with that. That's the way the 33.1 is.

I left my black panel in place. When my water tank is full water comes out the overflow tube below the water pump compartment. No problems so far.

Took out the black panel and put in a plexiglass panel. Put in a shelf to divide the compartment in half. Bolted on the shelf 6 each 4" PVC caps. Cut 6 each 4" PVC pipes about 10" long. Fold and stuff my tire covers on the pipes. 4 for the coach and 2 for the dolly. Keeps everything neat.

We live our coach!!!

On the passenger side just rear to the large compartment is a small one which is only 8"-10" deep. There is a partition attached by two screws. You can remove the screws and there is the water pump and inline filter.

You were told correctly, but the temperature that it turns off is too low so it stays on a long time. I looked into the disc thermostats and their property is that their turn on and turn off temperature difference large. I pursued this with Thor and they admit this is the case but they don't yet have a solution. My solution is to install a relay that turns the fan on when the inverter fan is on and off when the inverter fan is off. I ordered the relays but have not taken time to dig into the inverter to get access to its fan.
