Thanks.

P.S. We used the mint antifreeze, it took forever for our water not to taste like mint, kind of threw off the taste of my hot tea.
Carol,

By all means remove your filter from the Moen fixture..
I'd just store it till Spring, risen it out and then re-install it~

I pulled mine out also. I am curious though since this is my first trailer with an inbuilt filter. If I remember correctly, the "brains" of the Moen fixture consider that when a filter is installed, the use cycle measurement starts over...meaning it considers that you have installed a new filter. I guess this means by re-installing the old, you could use the filter beyond its standard life. To me this would mean that the filtering function, other than particulates, is non functional.

Would there be any other concerns?

I've always been curious about this since up until I bought the Classic, I've always used the fresh water tank method as the means to inject RV anti-freeze into my trailers. I always flushed things throughly each spring and never had any tainting of the water. I'm beginning to believe my taste buds are dead or maybe folks just aren't doing a good enough flush of their systems.
