I could not locate the exact filter when I did my aft head (they say they are standard lengths) but the rigid hoses have no play. Had to add fittings and shorten the hose. The forward one can be reached by my skinny friend but a like for like will be key. Anyone know where to find this exact filter?

My son-in-law whose new nickname is now 'rubberband man' got the dang filter fittings off of the hoses.
The hose going 'to' the tank delivered us about about 4 plastic beer cups of good and smelly effluent! Lost some..captured most.
Question for the crew.
Could that have been 'left-over' from the previous owner who let the tank overfill without a pump-out? I never let the tank volume indicator get to 'red'. He pushed the hose as far 'down' to get out any remaining fluid and that seems to be it. Do you think the I have to disconnect the filter and get in there with a shopvac or would you think I should be in good shape? The filter is well above the waterline while holding tank is below. Could the be my 'stuff' and the indicator doesn't work?
What do you think? Thanks.
