Fuel filter change

Hi every one. I have a 2005 Holiday Neptune with an ISB Cummins engine. Last year I had someone change the fuel filter for me and this year I want to do it myself. If any one that has the same engine/MH and can let me know the steps I would appreciate it. It is something that I need to learn in case it has to be done on the road; plus save the $60.00 they charged me. Just seems a little scary! It has two fuel filters on the system, thanks, Peter

I would check with your local Cummins shop and see what specials they have going on. The shop here usually has a special on oil and lube for cummins engines. I have them change out my fuel filters with the oil change. 53 qts of oil, oil filters, lube, and fuel filters came to something like $225.00. You'd be hard press to buy the parts for that.

Thanks for the info but I have already changed the oil and filter myself with no problems. Am trying to migrate over to doing all the maintenance work myself.

As I posted in the other thread:

I think in another thread someone told you to call the Cummins help line with your engine serial number; or, to call Freightliner help line with your chassis number to get the numbers for the correct filters. They should be able to clear up the water separator issue for you also.
