All, found a filter in the propane compartment, assume it's a hydraulic system filter. Don't have spare, so left it alone. Found the Fuel-filter water/seperating filter back in the air cleaner bay, and drained the unit to make sure no water was present. I have read there are other fuel realated filters, which I have not found. Does anyone here do their own oil changes on the Cummings ISL-400 engine? If so, please pass along your procedure, since I have not done one of these big ones before. My old Ford truck used to take 15Qts oil w/new filter. Are there other filters I need to find-inspect-change down the road?

The fuel filter in my propane compartment (high up on forward bulkhead) is for the fuel line back to my Hydro-hot system. The filter gets changed once a year when the HH diesle burner is cleaned.

Old-Rv'er- I just finished changing all my filters. You will find another fuel filter mounted on the right (passenger side) of the engine block. Make sure to fill both of the engine fuel filters with fuel prior to replacing them.

My engine oil system requires 24 quarts when changing out the filter and crankcase . Again, fill the new filter with oin prior to replacing.

There are also 3 filters in the large hydraulic cannister located in the engine compartment. They can be accessed after draining the cannister.

I have seen it posted on other RV forums that Cummins now recommends that you do NOT pre-fill the fuel or the oil filters when changing them. Electronic engines only require two or three times to turn the ignition key to the ON (not start) position, leaving it on for about 20 seconds each time. This fills the fuel filter. Not filling the oil filter apparently results from the difficulty in handling it when it is full...more likely to spill it and drop engine crud into it when it is full.

Some of us have had a second one installed as extra insurance at the recommendation of Cummins tech.
