Good info Bill, was given the tool & changed filter at 42k miles. Per owners manual should have been changed at 25k miles, fortunately I lucked out. In the future I will definitely adhere to Ford's recommended change schedule. Also good advice you gave to carry a spare filter, haven't done that yet though.

Thank you very much for the good info. Picked up a couple of filters and the tool. Changed over this past week-end. Coach only has 16000 miles on it, but its 3 years old. Man did that stuff coming out of the old filter stink. Thanks again.

The fittings on the ends of the gas line have internal clips the grasp the fuel filter. I always found it easier to spray a little WD40 into the fitting to help in removal. Another way is to bottom out the tool aginst the fitting and push the fitting onto the tool to release the clips. When you put in the new filter you can hear the clips snap when you push them in place.
The filter is held in place pretty tightly. Slide it out, towards the front of the coach, while spreading the filter retainer with channel locks or a screw driver.
Use the plastic cover that comes on the new filter to plug the old filter inlet when you get the fitting off. If you keep the old filter tilted up it keeps fuel from leaking out of the filter and down on you. When you get done you can shake the filter up a little and drain it into a clear container to see the big peaces the filter has caught. Cover the outlet with your finger when you shake.

It should be located on the left frame rail, inboard side, about 4 feet to the rear of the front tire.

The only thing I would like to add is to always have a couple of golf tees handy when working with gas lines. Great for plugging lines. Thanks for the great info and instructions. I have a new filter and tool waiting for the next service interval.
