I installed a water filter mount to keep water filter clear of the ground.

Great Idea!!! Great pictures!!! I'm going to copy the idea and modify it for my rig.

But -

Somebody was sure to ask and I guess I'm the somebody...

Why is "top" written upside down on the bracket? (Just have to know)

Just to see if someone would notice?

No, because I drilled the holes in the wrong place?

No, I didn't turn that piece over to the correct side before I took the photo?

No, it was the top end of another experiment I did some time last year.

Yea, thats right, now I remember, uh, but I forgot what the experiment was!

I can't take credit for this one.

I copied for a design on Marlene's Casita when we were at River Vally Egg Rally.

This mod is really slick . Too often I've seen water filters just laying by the tire all hooked up. Too close to the sewer connection for me. I don't have a water filter, but I'd be doin' this mod if I did!

At Pineknot several years ago someone had there filter inside an old plastic cat litter container setting on the ground. He had drilled several holes near the bottom to let the water out if it started leaking. While he was there the fire ants built a mound inside the container.

I decided I would never put my filter on the ground and had several ways to do this before now.

You might have noticed that I use 'shark bite' connectors for the water fitings. Makes it easy to install and remove.

Oh, the benefits lost to society when mature inventors suffer senior moments...
