Mine has a shut off for the filter and filtered water faucet. I blow it out, remove the filter, shut the line off and then pump pink in, "bypassing" the "sippy" faucet and filter housing.

I have Delta hardware throughout.

The undersink filter has a bypass built in to the filter holder. Remove it and water should not come out into the undersink area.

The folks at JC say the filter will remove the red in the anti-freeze. It did in mine, but the product was there Ė I tasted it. ;-)

And while I don't know about an automatic shut off when the filter is removed, the book basically says the opposite. And that's what I did. Of course, it renders that filter useless, but the AS manual instructs the user to save the filter for the next winterizing.

I take the filter out, try to get all the water out (hard to tell if I do), take it inside for the winter so any water left in doesn't freeze.

Don't know what kind of fixtures you have in yours Gene, but the 2011 I have has Moen. I've talked with them and JC, and neither mentioned the bypass scheme (and believe me, I don't like burning a half used filter).

And here's what the manual says.

Murray, I have a Moen too. What I know is that it works the way I described. I can't read the excerpt from the Manual even expanded and don't feel like going to the trailer to look at mine.

And here's what the manual says.

If yours doesn't have one from the factory, install a shut off valve in the supply hose from the house plumbing to the filter housing. Mine looks like a residential toilet or icemaker shutoff.
Blow the line out with air and turn the valve off prior to adding pink stuff. Remove the filter, leave the housing off and leave the drinking water faucet open.

Unless you want to buy a half used Moen water filter (perfect for winterizing the sippy water) from me, I'll probably let the next guy (that buys my trailer) install the shut off valve. ;-)

A lot of unhappy folks about JC not listening RE placement of water pump. Maybe they HAVE listened! Just winterized my 2012 28' Int'l CCD. It took 5 minutes to put in a bypass at the water pump to run some antifreeze into the lines. Panel under fridge pulls off, there's the pump. Lots of room all around it. Input and output water lines are high pressure nylon hoses. Unscrew -- finger tight -- at water filter -- insert the kit, and all done.

Bab, is the filter at the front or the back. On mine it was in the back and just about impossible to reach. I got them to turn it around at no cost to me. I put rubber washers under it at the 4 screws and it made it a little quieter (or less noisy).

I put a bypass on my galley sink for the filter this afternoon. and in the process discovered what the little faucet handle was for on my Moen... who would have thought the filter would have its own dedicated line for filtered water... now if i could just figure out how to tighten down the Moen fixture.... for the life of me I can't figure out just exactly what it is that is keeping it in place albeit loosely. And no I don't have a picture b ecause I took the AS back to storage before i thought to take a picture. It's a Moen with spaghetti filler type neck and single lever handle for hot/cold mix plus the filtered water handle and a sprayer

Red face Note to Self

Yesterday I moved the camper to storage - before that, I removed the batteries and killed all the switches and breakers.........THEN I tried to put it on the truck - NOT! I had to replace the batteries and turn on the switches and breakers because the tongue jack would not work. After storing it in my mother's barn, I re-removed the batteries and re-turned off all the breakers and switches.

Now, the trailer is all snug and dry - stored in a nice barn where it won't leak anymore and waiting for me to drop the belly, assess the damage and replace rotten flooring.....I can do the work next door (mom's) whenever I want - no heat there so I'm not sure when that will be.

Have a safe winter everyone!

The filter is just ahead of the brass valve I inserted. (It was easy to install the bypass in FRONT of the filter rather than behind it.) The filter has a clear plastic dome on it, and you can see the screen on the inside, so if it gets fouled, it'll be readily apparent.
