Cummins Onan RV QG 4000 and Fumoto oil drain valve?

Hello-

I have a Cummins Onan RV QG 4000 generator for my 2011 Fleetwood Storm. Does Fumoto make an oil drain valve for this generator? I've been playing around with the site, they have a Cummins selection with "other" engine type, but I'm thinking that's probably not for a RV generator.

If they do make a valve, is there room for this valve in the little opening in the case that surrounds the generator? When one opens the little window to access the oil drain plug, there doesn't seem to be much room for anything much bigger than the standard oil plug screw.

Thanks.

Thanks.
On my generator, a standard valve will not work, it is not long enough to reach through the case to the drain plug.

I would drill a hole through the plate if necessary to make room for the Fumoto. Good idea by the way. I have a couple Fumotos on vehicles.

Yeah that is what I was afraid of. I looked at it again today and they don't give much space.

I'm not even sure what i would use to drill the hole.....maybe a hole saw for metal?

Depends on size. I'm not sure the plate is even necessary.
