    Yellow water

    Hi, I have a 2020 32 gk. We have been parked in the same location and Hooked up to the same water source the whole time (2 months). About a month ago I noticed the water is yellow sometimes. Then I noticed it turns yellow after flushing the toilet. So the sinks and showers have clear water, then flush and they turn yellow for about 3 seconds, then clear again. Water in toilet is always kinda yellow. Any ideas? The water source is a filtered well and we have another filter on the hose. I think it is internal, but not sure where to go from there. Help please.

    Hi etn004,

    Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum.

    I think the first thing I'd do is check the water source. Fill a bucket several times to see what the well water looks like. A second step would be to change the water filter.

    Re: Yellow water

    I did an internet search on the topic and got the answer that the problem is probably rust in the well water.

    You may need an iron specific water filter cartridge like this:
