Water Filtration System Installed in 2014 Heartland Landmark Savannah

LOCATION: River Vista RV Resort – Dillard, GA
ITEM: RV Project (Water Filtration System)

While here for the Georgia Chapter Heartland Owners Club Rally, I completed another project on the new RV (2014 Landmark Savannah). I installed a water filtration system. It’s a 2-stage system. Stage 1 is a 5 micron sediment filter and state 2 is a charcoal filter. On the output of stage 2 is a tee. The tee feeds a 1/4″ angle stop. This is the ice maker connection for the residential refrigerator (Frigidaire side-by-side with ice and water in the door).

Thanks go to my friends Larry B for reviewing my plan and giving me some great feedback and Kevin W for helping me install it all.

  1. Jim, we have a 2013 Landmark San Antonio. The equipment bay configuration looks a lot like yours. I’m planning to use dual jumbo filter canisters, though (it looks like yours are standard size?), which will be larger and pretty heavy when full of water. So I’m thinking I may brace the frame at the top with a connection to the ceiling of the compartment, in addition to screwing it to the floor.

    I’d like to find a way, though, to avoid having the filter system permanently in the way of access to the rest of the bay, just in case I need to have something else in there serviced. It would be tough to move that system with all the PEX connections. So I’m trying to figure out how to make the whole thing movable if needed.

    One thing I didn’t see in your installation that I’m considering is a bypass around the filters, to use when pumping in sanitizer or antifreeze through the Anderson 4-way valve. I’m thinking about using a pair of Y fittings with shutoffs, and a hose between them. That way if I need to pump something other than water through the connection, I could avoid filling up the filters with it. What do you think?
