That makes sense. Any tips for removing the canister so the cartridge can be removed? Access is very limited and do to it being mounted flush to the bulkhead the supplied wrench can not be placed around the canister. Iíve tried twisting it by hand but it doesnít budge and am afraid I am going to break something.

Antifreeze portf access

Thanks to Jeffrey Lee for the excellent pictures of the fresh tank fill and antifreeze port.
Question: How do I get in there? Thor couldn't do more than read the instructions and schematic to me. Do I have to disassemble something?

Anti-Freeze port

There is an access hole to get to the water tank screw on top. To get to the Anti-Freeze port you need to remove that section of the bed top by unscrewing all the screws. I did that to get the pictures you saw but have not done it since. In my opinion there is no need to get to the Anti-Freeze port. I use the drain in front of the fresh water tank to let all the water drain out. I used the fresh water input port (not the City) to put in bleach to sanitize the system. I purchased a simple hand pump that allows me to pump in fluid. I used same pump to put in the RV Anti-Freeze after I completely drained all the water. After you drain all the water (open low point valves outside and release valve inside, then close) remember to shut of two valves to hot water tank as you do not want antifreeze in it and turn the bypass valve to allow fluid to circulate in system (but not hot water heater). I pump in two gallons of antifreeze into the fresh water tank and then use onboard water pump to get antifreeze to run out of all water faucets both hot side and cold side. I allow antifreeze to go down kitchen sink and batch room sink so p-traps will not freeze. I put anti-freeze down shower drain and into toilet so both grey and black tanks are protected. Also remember to run your outside hose connection and the toilet flushing so antifreeze gets into those lines. Finally, I also pumped a little anti-freeze into the city water input and see that it comes out kitchen faucet to make sure that line will also not freeze.

I know this seems like a lot but it really goes fast.

Happy Travels

Water Filter, Winterizing, Antifreeze port

Jeffrey Lee provided valuable info on the plumbing. Apparently, the Tellaro doesn't come from the factory with a jumper around the water filter. So I'm making my own. 1/2 inch poly tubing and 1/2 inch hose barb x male NPT. I see no reason to pump the filter housing full of antifreeze. When I sanitize next spring, I'll go through the filter housing to make sure there aren't slimy things growing in there, and put the filter element in after sanitizing.
I learned the importance of sanitizing when I had a travel trailer. The fresh water line from the tank grew black ugly stuff, and it clogged the pump strainer. Yuk.
