Fuel Filter

OK, hopefully I can get a little help here. We purchased a 2002 Newmar Dutch Star 4097 on a Spartan Chassis with a Cummins 350hp diesel. I have changed all the fluids and filters except for one, the fuel filter.
That darn thing is on the passenger side of the block, and impossible to get to. I am wondering if anyone here has any advice on how to get to it so I can get it changed?
I did call Cummins to see about a fuel filter relocation kit, but they quoted me $1,200.00 for it. To me, that seems like a lot of money? Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

Yes it is hard to get to. When I had a 99 it was there also. I was able to get it from the under side, but then that is what I spend my working life doing. You also have to be careful when moving filter into place because it is close to exposed starter wires that have battery voltage. I know this may not help, it is a pita. I just went through Wayland last Thursday and could of stopped and helped.

I had the same problem on an 02 sparton chassis. I did put a relocation kit on it but I know it didn't cost what you quoted. I would call sparton and ask them about a kit. I remember all the wiring close to the fuel filter. LOL

I did call Spartan, and they don't have a kit any more. They referred Mk e to Cummins, and that is the quote from them.
