Not sure if your filter is fed via rubber hoses but if it is, go to any auto parts store and buy some special hose clamps, not the kind that secure the hose to a barbed fitting but clamps that pinch off the hose. Remove the filter, fill it with fresh oil, re-install and remove the pinch clamps.

If you can find a appropriately sized stopper to put in the fill port you will not have to drain the reservoir. Spartan says a wine cork but I found that a little too small of a diameter. Don't unscrew the dipstick too much as it may come unthreaded from the center shaft and pieces of it will fall into the reservoir. Only unscrew a few turns then pull up to remove.

Place a sturdy plastic bag over the filter as you spin it off to catch any drips that spill. If you chose to prefill the new filter I would not completely fill it to make it lighter for screwing on as well as less likely to spill. As the old filter comes have something under the housing as it will drip a little. Screw on the new filter making sure the new gasket is properly seated in its groove all the way around the filter (it has a tendency to push out). Pull out the stopper from the fill port and the reservoir will fill the rest of the filter. Top the reservoir up to the proper mark on the dipstick and run the engine to check for leaks. Recheck the level and add fluid as necessary.

As I understand it, there are two filters. The spin on and there is another inside the reservoir. Which one are you asking about?

I only have the spin on filter, anyone have the part # for the internal one ?
Then I can drain the reservoir and do them both at the same time

Go to the sticky at the top of the forum. It is a Nelson part number.

We have the same setup on our Newmar coach. I used a small transfer pump and pumped from the filler port. Once it is low enough you ccan remove the top.
I would replace the seals on the lid at the same time.
I did a full replace of the oil, since we had an older coach and did not know when it had been serviced.

This is the procedure laid out by "big Mike" at the presentations he did at the Entegra Homecomming. FYI on the stoppers, Home Depot and Lowes both sell rubber stoppers, probably a better idea vs. the wine bottle cork.
