For all of you who use a large, house size canister filter, what do you do with the filter when stored? Do you empty the canister? What do you do with the filter, do you just leave it to dry out or do you change it after every trip?

I keep my double filter and associated short hoses in a an appropriate sized plastic container. 1, it keeps everything together and 2, protects the filter housing from harmful UVs. Per the manufactures recommendation I do not drain the water totally out of the filter for storage, just enough to keep water from spilling out. The filters are rated for several hundred gallons of water. No reason to change them until necessary.

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

This is what I installed for a whole RV filtration system.

It's plumbed to filter water from the tank and/or city supply. I still use the camco filter as a first line filter.

Replacement filters

That is what I also built. I read the two filters recommended are RV-Sed1 and CBC-KDF.
If you use these too, where do you buy these without paying a fortune in shipping charges?
