Country Coach (1997 Intrigue) water filter
 
I recently purchased a '97 Country Coach Intrigue and noticed that there is an internal factory installed water filter located in one of the bays in a separate enclosure. I have not as yet removed the enclosure. Did some internet research and it appears that the replacement is model # MAXETW-975RV.

Would appreciate any feedback as to whether or not this is the right filter, or if there are any alternatives available other than the model I reference above. Also, can the filter by bypassed if sanitizing the fresh water tank?......thanks..........Meltdown

That is a very basic water filter, 5 micron, not doing much other than removing chlorine. I would replace it with a high-quality filter that removes most contaminants down to .5 (1/2) micron.

We use the Camco blue in-line filter in the hose outside and the high-quality filter under the sink for all water that we consume either by drinking or cooking. :thumb::D

No, you do not have to use the exact filter you list. Filters can be had to filter different things so I suggest you spend some time reading about filters here https://www.rvwaterfilterstore.com/.

The easiest way to bypass the filter is to remove it and reinstall the filter bowl without the filter.
