fuel filters

Hi...I am trying to figure out how to drain the fuel filter on a 2006 safai cheeta. The manual shows something completely different than what I see. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

On most RVs the Mfgr adds the filter with the water separator and there are several variations. Most all have a drain plug on the bottom that can be released. Some have see-thru sections on the lower part of the filter so any water can be seen. In my experience I have never found any water to be drained. Also my current rig uses a water sensor in the first filter that will alert me if any water is detected.

arz2006, welcome to the forum. Are you trying to drain it to check on water content or draining it to change the filter. Most motorhomes have two filters, one a primary which is not on the motor and usually has a water separator with a drain and then there is the secondary filter which is normally attached to the motor. Are you trying to drain the primary or the secondary filter?

Thanks....as it turned out we ended up needing to have the fuel filter changed so draining was no longer an issue.

I just changed both of mine last weekend. Both of mine have water drains on them.
