Air filter replacement

I have a 2005 Fleetwood Discovery diesel 330 hp and wondering if anyone knows what air filter to use when replacing ? Do you need to go thru Cummins or can you use a Napa brand air filter ? Any thoughts or suggestions ? I did see where someone posted there is a list of filters, but could not find it on the forum ? Thanks

I went to NAPA Auto and Truck parts store and they crossed referenced a WIX filter for my coach. I don't know if the cost is much different, but for me NAPA was just 1 mile away. WIX makes filters for a lot of major brands filters and puts their name on them. Or at least that I was told once.

Information on air filters here, K&N discussed later in the thread.
Cummins 5.9L Air Filter Part Number Needed

Cummins (fleetguard), NAPA, Eco-Farr and WIx all make reliable replacements.

I did replace my Eco-filter with a NAPA filter but it was high dollar. The reason I went with a NAPA was I needed it now and they had it. I had a bad experience with the Eco filter cracking at the outlet. There are a lot of filters that crossed but as I said I needed it now and NAPA had it. Jim

I also found a Freightliner parts supplier was much cheaper than the generic brand from Napa not only on the air filter but all the other filters.

K&N's only work if you want to keep rocks out, they won't stop the dust that wears engines out.

Use a real filter. Diesels don't like dirty air..

Sorry, I disagree with statement made about K&N filters. I belonged to a group that used to go to the sand dunes. The first thing we would do is to get rid of the stock filters on the buggies & 4-wheelers, and install K&N filters. You have to spray or brush a light weight oil on the filters and your ready to go. You don't see any more sand or dust anywhere else, than the sand dunes. And yes I have had the oppertunity to see the internal parts of those engines, no damage caused by sand or dust.

Bill; There have been several discussions here about diesel engines being more susceptible to dust ingestion. Auto/gasoline engines are more forgiving to some extent.
Long discussion here, includes a link to photos of dust accumulating inside the air intake ducting, after the air filter.

I also agree. Real men use "real" filters.
