Workhorse chassis it is in the front wheel passenger side unless it has been changed to a CAI as in this information and your TUBA has been removed because of it in-taking water into the paper air filter box.
You will find this information in important WH link I gave you with also information on a brake recall for W-22 chassis brake system that should have been completed by now.

When I give you a link its directly to the information you asked for, but its a good idea to read the previous posts to find out why we got to the fix that I gave you, you may miss important information if you do not start at the beginning of a thread.

Their are no stupid questions on this forum, I have been here for 14 years answering same questions with same answers, the post I gave your with info for your Workhorse is here, same answer for many other Workhorse Owners.
It would be nice to let people know you have had your questions answered, so we know you have read their posts.

I have bookmarked your info from before but I did not find anything about the air filter I guess my age is catching up with me.
When you use terms like CAI & TUBA I have no idea what you are talking about.

You can find this information in QT's # 3 PROBLEM SOLVERS, CAI means cool air intake which would replace your paper air filter box and TUBA I use for that big horn in front of the engine radiator which the CAI also eliminates for better cooling through your radiator, stick around for a while you will feel at home in a while and as far as age I may have you beat, can't drive anymore no MH and just enjoy answering all everyone's questions as I age out.

Turn the wheels all the way to one side or the other then stick your head in the front right wheel well. It's a big obvious box when you look at it from there, pretty well hidden from any 'normal' place to look for it from.

Ok open the "Hood" you see the big funnel (TUBA) follow it down and now get under the RV first time behind the right front tire. You will find a BOX teh "Tuba" leads to.. That be it.

And, if you need to get under the coach, don't rely on the air bags or stabilizing jacks to keep the coach up. Use blocks under the frame rails to ensure the other systems don't fail while you are under the coach. I know it seems unlikely that those systems would fail, but it would only take once to do you in.

Be safe.

Floyd, if you intend to change the filter yourself. Get your garden hose out and rinse REALLY well inside that wheel and then let it dry before you attempt to replace the air filter. Also, use a good quality filter, like an AC Delco, available at most auto parts stores.

Side Note:.....That particular engine was very hard on spark plug wires. The design did not provide enough air flow over the exhaust manifolds, where the plug wires attach to the spark plugs. This causes the spark plug wires to deteriorate over time. You'll see this manifest as a missing or sputtering under hard acceleration, like climbing a grade.

The good news.....they now make a heavy duty spark plug wire set that can handle the high heat. They're available at hot rod supply shops, like Summit Racing, an online supplier.
