Onan diesel fuel filter change

I just changed the oil, oil filter, & fuel filter. Does the fuel filter need to be primed? Since it isn't a spin on filter I couldn't find a way to fill it with fuel. I pinched the supply line prior to removing the old filter. Do I just start it up now or will the air gap stop the genset?

Hello and . We are glad to have you join us and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy the website and forums. Good luck, stay safe and keep us posted.
Push and hold the stop side of the start/stop switch for about a minute. This will cause the fuel pump to run, fill the fuel filter and then you can start the genset. If you run the fuel out, you can also re-prime the genset after filling the tank this way.

That's the way mine works, too.

Onan fuel filter prime

Thanks guys. Your instructions worked perfect! I much prefer doing the work myself than the hassel of Camping World. Plus I save money. Although I've been RV'ing for 3 years now, working from our coach, I think this is the 1st time I've used this forum for questions. Great results and I'll always check in with you guys for future questions. Happy Trails Everyone. Monday we start a 2 week run from TN to New England & back.
