Determine filter size for Rheem RBHC-14J06SFD

I need to determine the proper filter size for a central AC unit.

Rheem MODEL RBHC-14J06SFD

The filter in there now is 12X20X1 but it is very loose with a gap like 1/4" on each side for air to flow pass without going through the filter.

I measured the width of the filter slot and it's 12-7/8" wide and with the 12X20X1 fully inserted there is at least 1" of gap depth wise. Does it mean I really need a 12.5"X21"X1?

I looked on the Rheem site and can't seem to find a way to find filter size by model.

Yes I got the 12x20x1 as suggested but that seems to be too small. The width is almost 1" too small and same with the depth. So when I put it in I reached up from the bottom I can feel air flowing passed the edges. There is a sliver on both sides even if I move the filter to center it.

Here you can see the filter when moved to the left there is a space of about 7/8" to the right.





Depth wise the 20" works because it is slightly longer then the opening, but it can be up to an inch longer.



That's why I went to the Rheem web site and tried to look up the size for that model and didn't find it. I didn't want to mail order a case of custom 13.5X20X1 or 13.5X21X1 and not be sure.

Never mind, I did find a Rheem PDF file with a size for this, it's 12.75X21X1. That's an odd size and I won't find one locally.
