Water Filter Part
« on: September 02, 2019, 12:12:53 PM »

Gents,

I was doing water system maintenance and pulled my filter out to get a replacement.  I guess this model is no longer made or I just couldn't find the part.  Is this a filter used in any other C34? Do you know how to get a replacement?  There is not a lot of room for a new filter, but maybe I have to do that, got any advice if that is the route I need to take?

Thanks,

Ryan

How tall is the cartridge?

Amazon sells a full size unit, similar to the one I installed on Eximius: https://amzn.to/34grF68

Ryan : Does the outer case/holder screws on to the same raw water filter holder?  If it does it looks like that company made a water filter for that type holder.  I have never seen one like this before!!

A thought   :?

Thanks for the tips.  I found a 5" filter online at Home Depot, so i'll see if that fits.  If not i'll have to put a new unit in. 

Paul, i'm not sure if that one you sent will fit being 14".

Ron,

I guess maybe I could just use the bottom screw in portion of a newer model, that would be easier than re plumbing and entire new unit.

But they're probably cheaper at big box stores or online.

Kooks similar to mine, except my filter is charcoal.  I get replacements at Lowes or the local RV store.
