Diesel pusher parts

Anyone have good websites to purchase parts for a diesel pusher. I particularly am looking for the air cleaner box. Or should I say cylinder. My rig is 14 years old and the housing for the air filter is rusting out. I've found chrome truck ones for a little over 200 but not sure how they would fit. Trying to find a replacement is so hard. Not as easy as finding parts for cars and trucks. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

For filters I usually find the best price at The Filter Barn. They carry some of the car & truck filters I need too. Another place to get parts is from RV Chassis Parts.

Forgive what may be a dumb question, but have you ever changed the filter? Many of the filters for large diesel pushers are all one piece housing and filter.

It sounds like the one you have is a replaceable filter set up. If so it would be interesting to get details. thanks

The filter you're looking for is a complete cannister unit. Try internet searching: Eco filters.

The filter unit in my coach is model# Eco-SM (Wix) # 546857

Yours may be different.

The filter cannister unit is supposed to be changed every three years, or sooner if necessary.

And do not trust the filter monitor. It doesn't take 14 years for the canister to get some rust on it but if you have no long term maintenance info on the MH it should be changed. Your engine will love you for it.

greatlakes.......If your coach has an air box with replaceable filter, maybe you can just junk the air box and go with one of the filters that has it's own canister. Monaco used air boxes with a replaceable filter, but most of the other companies just used a disposable canister with could be easily retrofitted to your coach.

Thanks guys. Yeah Don I was thinking the same thing. I do have a metal canister that houses a filter but if something else will fit I would prefer to get rid of the rusty canister. Wonder if anyone else had done that. Just not sure the mounting locations etc.
