Ford V10 DYI Oil Change, Installed Fumoto Valve

Preparing for a cross country trip I prepared the Newmar Canyon Star with basic service. Oil Change, lubricate Kingpins, walk around tightening and adjusting various items.
On my list was to install the Fumoto Valve that has been sitting in my tool box. And a Lock N Lube grease fitting devise. Here is my experience

Thank you for the response. I posted this here for a couple of reasons.

First I am interested, as noted in the video, what other DYI folks do and other methods or practices when changing fluids in their motorhomes.

These videos are also to help those that have never been under their motorhome. Changing oil is "second nature' to many of us but there are folks new to RV DYI that could use some relatively easy examples.

I think it's great that people post instructional videos on YouTube. I have learned a ton this way. I guess though I fail to see the instructional aspect of yours. Your title is "Oil Change and Fumoto Valve install" but no where do you show how you actually do any of it. I only watched the video to see how you put your oil in. I have my method and it works well but I always like to see how other people do it.

Was this just a way to direct people to your YouTube channel?

Oh well, thanks for sharing I guess. Oh, also FYI, it's DIY.

I also watched the video, had some free time, and the only thing I saw was a cartoon of oil coming out of the new drain valve.

Not sure how the video could help folks unfamiliar with changing oil. There wasn't even a reference as to where the oil drain fitting is.

It was like watching a bad movie until the end, waiting for the good part and it never comes.

Sorry, I didn't get it.

Thank you for the feedback.
I was attempting to tailor the video for this audience. Apparently my assumption that folks on IRV2 would have at least a passing understanding of the basics of an Ford F53 chassis and the V10 was incorrect. This feedback helps me provide useful content for my next video.
Thanks

Those that "have never been under their motorhome" or having an understanding of the basics aren't very synonymous, but ..... I know what I want to say, but don't know how to say it without getting in trouble.

Now I think we are all confused. Your first response says it was to help "those that have never been under their motorhome". Then your second response was "I was attempting to tailor the video for this audience".

I guess we aren't the only ones confused.
