Help Identifying Flow Pur Water Filter

I'm hoping this post doesn't get buried by the House Batteries/Generator post that's been beaten to absolute death.

I have a Flow Pure under-sink filter. It has no model number and there's no manual in Thor Owner Resource nor on onboard. It may have been an aftermarket/dealer install. I'd like to change out the filter.

I attached a picture of the only markings it contains except Made in USA.

It measures 10.5" bottom to where it joins the wall mount. I see 10" replacement filters and want to be sure I'm picking the right one.

Anyone care to venture at a guess?

Thanks.

The standard 10 inch filter should work. Most of the ones I. see are from Watts, I believe.

These are the ones I have been using on 3 RVs in the last 11 years.

Thank you. Do you order/replace the o-ring as well or reuse it?

I reuse if I replace filters within the year and then replace it after sanitizing in the spring. If I'm at a campground that has a high sulfur content in the water I will replace the o-ring and filter after I return home from that trip.

Walmart sells (or they have in the past) the 10" Culligan 2 pack filters for about $12, bought the sediment & charcoal cartridges there several times.

Saw those. Did you prefer one over the other? And why?

Actually used both!
I had a RV water softener with the sediment filter before the softener & the charcoal after. The sediment, as name implies, removes particles where the charcoal improves taste.

Thanks. I was trying to avoid a remove until I was sure I had a replacement. That's why I asked about the o-ring.

For folks that are not in Florida and have the whole house filter I recommend getting a winterizing by-pass plate. Saves about a quart or two of anti-freeze when winterizing. Remove the filter element, install the plate and then reinstall the canister.

Put a bit of plumbers grease, sold at most hardware stores, some cooking oil or Crisco on the o-ring, this will prolong it's life, in 6 years never replaced mine. DO NOT USE any petroleum based lubrication, it WILL ruin the o-ring.
