Hello & Welcome RoyBoy:

I purchased a washable Filter from Danny Allison (863-581-1111) at the FMCA Rally in Indio, CA just prior to the Quartzsite Rally. I also purchased a washable filter for the Onan Generator at the same time.

I hope this info helps.

Dave

Jim & Mary JO: Hi! The website you point to proved the point emphatically. While K&N may have a place in the off road arena. It would certainly fail to adequatlly protect a Cummins diesel (on highway) type application. By the way the filter housing on our Alpines is a Nelson Filter Housing, Owned by Cummins Engine Company. It is an almost direct copy of the DONALDSON COMPANY housing, the folks who invented engine air filtration and are Still the State of the art filtration manufacturer.

Most all pleated paper elements are washable. The paper is treated wih a resin and then cured so that it can "take a washin and keep in tickin."
I believe if you go to the Donaldson Filter Company website they will confirm this. as I said earlier Donaldson is the inventor of the pleated paper filter element and oil bath too, for that matter. In fact they do sell a powdered soap for this purpose. So dont waste your money on a more expensive "washable" air filter element.

If the washable air filter you purchased from Danny is the foam type, be aware they are worse performers than a K&N and you will most likely pass much more dirt into both your diesel engines

If you folks are looking for a state of the art element to use in your coach air intake system I would highly recommend your going to the DONALDSON FILTRATION COMPANY web site and read about their new Nano filter elements. They will do everything you ask for and more.

Hi Stretch!

Thanks for the feedback; looks like the stock filter is the way to go

Personally I think the stock filter does a very adequate job. If I wanted to investigate a new and/or possibly better filter I can't think of a better outfit to ask than Banks Power.

Banks uses K&Ns on gas engine applications, but I haven't seen a kit for diesels where they use K&N.

Hello Stetch:

The filter I purchased from Danny is a Cotton Gauze construction similar to the K&N filter and it Washable. I believe it was manufactured by AFE.
