I opted to install an in-line strainer. It has worked very well and I wish I had done it sooner. The strainer is made by Banjo and is heavy-duty glass reinforced polypropylene. It contains a stainless steel mesh screen. The basket can be checked by removing a plug at the bottom but I prefer to remove the basket covering to check for impeller blades. I found this to be the less messy method


Here is a pic:

There was some discussion in 2015 about adding a strainer to the Onan raw water hose going before the heat exchanger.  I'm supposing several people might have done that and I was wondering if sometone could post a photo of the installation and your opinion on the operation.  


Here is a sample of what I thought was being installed (perhaps a different manufacturer):
