Fuel filter access?

I have 2001 fleetwood discovery diesel, my question is how do you get access to the fuel filter on top of the catapiller 3126 dirsel engine.

I had a Fleetwood Providence and to change the secondary filter I removed the access panel in the bedroom and could get to the filter. I'd lay a blanket on top of the engine and lay in the floor over the engine. It was not a fun job, but it's do-able.....

Hi joseph92337,
Welcome to iRV2. Accessing the top of a diesel pusher usually requires the removal of a portion of the rear bedroom floor. The screws holding the floor access panel in place can be very difficult to find. In addition, the panel should have a heavy gasket all around it (protection from exhaust gasses). It is very dirty on the engine side of the panel. Cover the bed and floor with protection of some kind before removing the floor access panel.

Once you've found the filter, you may want to consider relocating it for easier access: Relocated Fuel Filter & Added Priming Pump .

I had a remote filter kit installed on my mh ---- my original fuel filter was above the starter on a Cummins ISC engine -- impossible for me to get to. I added the remote filter kit which mounted the filter on the rear frame and I also added an additional filter --- one before the lift pump and one after the lift pump. The work was done by Cummins South and the total cost was around $450.00. Now I can service my own fuel filters and I feel better having the dual filter setup.
