Location of Fuel Filter - 2004 Bounder?

2004 Bounder 38N Diesel
Had some problems this weekend: Loss of power, misfire, check engine. Felt like starving for fuel. Especially pronounced on hills (even minor inclines).

Changed the large canister fuel filter. Problem still persists. I have the in-line filter, but for the life of me, I can't find it! I assumed it would be on the rail right behind the tank (and that is where previous owner told me it would be at). What am I missing??

Thanks for the tip on the yahoo group. I applied for membership and waiting ot hear back. I will also ask on there.

The filter on the inside of the rear door is the main/large canister filter. I replaced that one (it has a sensor in the bottom and a drain). FYI - You can pick those up at NAPA or O'Reilly (I would rather use the cummins filter, but I needed one fast).

The filter I need to know the location of is the in-line fuel filter. I'm guessing that it is clogged from the symptoms. I actually had a spare, but I searched along both rails from the fuel tank to the rear and did not see it. I must be blind! Surely someone knows the exact location of this filter?

Also, I wish the owners manuals had specs in them! I have access to a recycling machine for the dash A/C. I can't find the normal tag that shows capacity for the R-134. The manual does not show the capacity either. Anyone know where I can find all the capacities for my RV?

I went out to snap a pic of the label for the a/c charge...but alas there is no label on dads either.
the brand is denso, and the booklet provided doesn't list charge capacities either.

I had an 04 Bounder -- there was a fuel 'strainer' in line, buried in the frame rail near the rear axle. this little sucker was black, about 2" in diameter, and maybe 3 1/2 inches long. The biggest problem I had with it was finding it. Once I found it, it was relatively easy to change. Best advise I can offer you is to follow the fuel lines back (they are buried with a bunch of other lines inside the curbside frame rail) until you stumble onto this "rock catcher". I replaced mine, but it is just a large screen, and I can see no reason that you couldn't simply flush it out and replace it.

Good Luck
