Fuel water separator

We have a 2007 National Pacifica TE40. This being our first diesel pusher I have a lot to learn as for maintenance and was given very very little info during the walk around. My question is when I fuel it there is a sticker that's say to check the fuel water separator after each fill. Can anyone tell me what this is and where it might be located. I apologize for my ignorance but as stated this is our first diesel pusher and the young man that did the walk around new less than I did.

Thanks much
John and Sandy Hill

John....on my coach the fuel water separator is built into the fuel filter and it does not provide a "visible" bowl on the bottom to see the collected water, but it does have a water drain on the bottom of the filter. Yours probably has a clear bowl on the bottom with a drain, as well. My fuel filter/water separater in hanging down in the second bay from the rear, drivers side. Good luck. Rook

Just checked all my compartments and didn't see it. I can find the air filter gauge but no fuel filter or water separator. Next I thought about crawling underneath and tracing the fuel line to the engine and seeing if I can find it. I would have thought it would have been in a simpler place. Anyone else have the 07 TE40B ? or suggestions

Rook that bay on my unit is the water and sewer hookups. I'm wondering if since we have the 2 ton basement air-conditioner/heat pump if its set up differently

Yes, it probably is......my two AC's are on top. resque595, look under the bed, if that has access to the engine compartment and open the rear engine access panel and look there. Since the water collection bowl is supposed to be drained after every tank of fuel, it should be somewhere with easy access, you would think! Rook

Can you download an Owners's Manual, that would tell you where it is located. Rook

If you have a Freightliner Chassis, call them, they will tell you where it is located. Rook

My 07 Pacifica water separator is in the right rear compartment with the
coleman basement heat pump unit. I just replaced mine. Without looking
at it I think it was the the second compartment from the back. That compartment takes the special "T" key. I have not been draining water from it and return today from a 4K trip.
