I searched for "3m USA under counter filter" (without quotes) and got a lot of hits. Do you know your specific model #?

The 3M Aqua Pure C-LC Filter Drinking Water Cartridge appears to be a replacement for the USF-A.

You could call 3m and get an real good answer.

I got a new one from Lichtnsinn Motors in April of this year. From their email "The model A 3M filter is our part number 10-0517 @ 39.39ea" You can get a current quote at their website https://www.lichtsinn.com/ I received the filter about five days after calling back with my credit card information. I have ordered stuff from them several times and always have gotten great service.

I have done business with Lichtsinn many times and the results were always good. Customer friendly.

Ok, thanks everyone for the replies. I'll try Lichtman after the holidays. My only other solution was to replumb a fridge filter in place of the 3M unit , which I have 3 of them.

3M discussion

I talked to 3M customer service about the high cost and short apparent life span of these filters. They advised that the trick to it is to remove them after each trip when you use the filters , wrap them in foil and store them in the fridge until the next trip. Said they are good for a year that way.

My only problem is I forget to take it out and store it.

Did you find one?

Good info to know. Since I turn off the refrigerator I guess I could do the same to that filter also.

Yea I found one , but I elected to install a fridge filter that I already have plus 2 more. The fitting on the 3M job look like they screw right in, and I can just loosely wire tie it in the same place.

That's the filter we upgraded to in our 2011 Winnebago View 24K. It was bigger than the original 3M filter from the factory but provides much better protection for viruses, cysts, etc.

Measure your water filter clearance then verify the C-CYST-FF will fit.
