no, it won't happen as it has a recessed area the lever is pressed into by a spring. for an added safety, they sell a spring clip for $3 to make it un-movable. i didn't buy the clip, but i use a hose clamp to make it stay there unless i remove the clamp first. no worry.

by the way, the one with nipple is better (when i ordered it, i didn't think much so i picked one without nipple. maybe they ran out of it that day, instead they sent me one with nipple. after using it, i realize with nipple it really keeps spill free ).

If you buy the fumoto, get the one that is barbed and will accept a hose on the end. Makes it much easier to direct the oil to a container. In my case, if I didn't use a hose, the old would land directly on the front I beam causing a mess. Fumoto was one of the best additions to my coach.

Now all I have to decide on is which size my Cummins ISL 450 HP engine will use. The Fumoto order web site only shows the F106 14mm 1.5 but the Fumoto size chart says I need a F104 M18.5 1.5 valve.
How did you ever pick the right size and place to order it?

i just selected the one for the engine make/model i had. to make it sure, you may call the seller providing your engine serial number.

I have had one installed on my 2003 Chevy Silverado/Duramax Diesel since the truck was new. I figure that has been about 34 oil changes. I have never had the valve open unexpectedly, but did have the valve not fully close after an oil change and it dripped a fair amount from the valve until I discovered the drip and reopened and reclosed the valve. I believe this was from road grime building up on the outside of the valve. Now, while the oil is draining I clean the outside of the valve to make sure the actuator fully closes, and no problems since.

I have used a fumoto valve for years on the oil pan and the hot water tank. Makes things very easy. Some years have done the north/south travel several times in winter and can drain the hot water and winterize in 15 minutes when needed. Also very handy to flush hot water tank.

Amusing story.....When I was about 20 years old I had an idea to make changing the oil on cars a whole lot simpler. I sketched it out and was figuring the ballcock prototype. My neighbor was a marine diesel mechanic and saw what I was doing. So I explained it to him. I was really proud of myself. He said it was a great idea, and that I could go down to Grand Auto and buy one for 3-4 bucks. Since then I've been working on my second $1,000,000. I gave up on my first!!!!

On my Cummins ISL in an '04 HR Imperial, there are two drain plugs. The usual one at the bottom of the pan, and another one higher up the side. With the upper plug, I usually get about 2-3 gallons of oil out. I can change buckets and get the rest out with the lower plug. No mess!

That's a great idea for the hot water tank! Anybody know what size for an atwood 10 gallon? I assume they will hold the pressure?

With a Fumoto in the HWH and oil pan, I'll be able to change the oil in the engine, change oil in generator (gen came with a screw valve to drain oil) and winterize in less than an hour!

I have been looking at one of these for my w22 chassis with the 8.1 motor. Does anyone know if the F-107N is the correct size. I do want the nipple so I can attach a tube to it.
Thanks,

Jim

Had bought one for my MH. When I had the oil changed ( HR Rally at Goshen IN ) finally looked at the engine drain plug. It was the lowest thing on the undercarrage. Felt it was too low and possible could get ripped off. As I don't do my own changes, sold it.
