Which Fumoto valve?

Getting about time to do an oil change on my 2000 Newmar Dutchstar with a Cummins 330. Which Fumoto valve would screw into my drain pan?

If you want a good oil drain valve get one of these. https://www.nospillsystems.com/

Those Fumoto valves I've seen are too small for these engines. I use them on my car and pickup but not MH. They drain too slow for larger amounts of oil.

Thanks for the heads-up. Checking into them now.

The Fumoto # is F-104. The thread size is 18mm-l.5.

If you still decide you want the Fumoto let me know. I have one still in the unopened package I bought for my Cummins 330. After seeing the small drain outlet on the valve I decided to buy the other one I told you about.

Another vote for the no-spill system. I've been using them since 2000 when I had a few diesel trucks and now use it on my Cummins in the RV. Love it! Just remember to give the hose piece to a service center if you go there for an oil change.

I contacted the no-spill people and at least we all agree on what size valve. I'll get one ordered.

". . . . the bottom port is a M18x1.5mm and the side is a M22x1.5mm."

By the way, what is the purpose of having a side port?

The only reason I can think of is to install a heating element like you use in your engine block heater to keep the engine oil warm during extreme cold weather. Like in Alaska. The side port is too high to be used as an oil drain.
