That is the water filter, can't remember what brand, and it may not be possible to get cartridges for it any more. It was usually used with a charcoal filter cartridge.

Nah, too scary! I'd just take it off and toss it!

Primitive warp drive. Careful with the dilithium crystals.

Yup.....I've got one under the kitchen sink in my '67. I just took the disgusting filter out of it, threw it away, and use it without one. (couldn't find one to fit, and really don't need one anyway)

You have to remember about it when you winterize, though..........

Early water filter, I cut it out and sweat a new bypass pipe in it's place. Just another place for a leak to start.
Gone baby........

It's a hat to be used during meteor showers, volcanic eruptions and when your wife gets really mad at you. In the latter case, earplugs are must because of the clang when the frying pan whacks you.

To use, remove old pipes and throw them away. I don't know what they are for. Turn over and firmly push down over head. Or turn yourself over and seat heat in meteor protection device, then flip you and device over as you return to your feet. Now you are fully protected.

Gene, you really must try to make it to burningman sometime. You will fit right in.

You can get an inline filter to go on the fresh water hose, and you can filter all the water for the trailer, not just the kitchen sink. You can get them from Camping World or other RV parts places, and last a year. They're pretty cheap, too, about $30.

Don't think I haven't thought of it, but it's too hot there.
