I have a 04 Southwind and want to obtain a spare fuel filter to carry with me. Has anyone found a replacement filter for the workhorse? I've checked a couple of the Workhorse repair shops, their prices range from $ 64 to $85 for what I consider a normal $15 item...

HuskyJack, Welcome to irv2, for an answer to your question, try a GMC or Chev. dealer for filters,antifreeze,etc. They sell trucks with same engine an trans. that the WH has, I have found their prices to be reasonable.---"007"

I believe cross ref for a GF481 fuel filter is a Fram G3727. Got one at Walmart. Looks same as whats on chassis, but I haven't tried it yet.

Once you have the original fuel filter brand/number, any auto parts store ought to be able to cross-reference it to the brands they sell and supply an equivalent part. If they don't have it in stock, they can get it overnight at no extra charge.

M&MHome2, Thanks for the info, the 03 Workhorse uses the GF481 filter but they changed to a different one for 04. The 04 has an extension on the outlet side and has fittings for two lines..

007, I've tried most of the chain auto parts, next step is the dealers...Thanks, Jack

We just had the fuel and the transmission filters replaced by the dealer, and I thought the costs were very reasonable: fuel filter $22.14, and transmission filter $17.74! Obviously, this doesn't cover the labor, but that was also pretty reasonable - considering that I don't even know where the filters are located.

As a side note...personally I would recommend that anyone who has the unit in for the first time consider changing this fuel filter. We were told by a Workhorse tech that they saw LOTS of problems with gunk in the filter stopping fuel flow. So the tech and I pulled mine and the worst black looking tar like stuff ran out of it when we checked it. The Chevy dealer had a filter and it was pretty cheap. I think probably that WH sends a unit out with a temporary tank for driving around the lot and at plant - the fuel gets old. Then a new tank is installed but the fuel is in the lines, filter and the old tank is old and turns to that varnish stuff. Anyway - we changed ours and I am pretty sure it saved me a problem down the line somewhere.

Thanks <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>JCM: The filter is located right behind the rear axle high and toward the inside of the left frame rail.

If you get under the rear of the MH and look up behind the rear end housing you will see it. Make sure your in park, emergency brake applied, and key out of the ignition.

edgray, I'm enjoying temperatures similar to JCM's and I would like to invite the bird of paradise to fly up your nose.

DonavonP : Hey, I apoligized before I even asked the question, gimme some credit here.

Actually, that bird already made that trip....several times, but I just sneeze, and go back to my Bud Light!

But seriously, how does anyone function at those temps? I can't imagine machinery moving too well, much less people. To each his own, I guess. Have fun, ED
