Hydraulic filter replacement

On my 08 madp I only have the one filter that is in the canister. I do not have the spin on filter with it. Could someone give me a short tutorial on how to replace the filter. Is it as simple as taking the top off , pulling the old out and submersing the new one. Does the oil need to be drained and replaced as well? Thanks

It is pretty simple to just change filters.
The top has a band clamp that needs removed. There is a seal at this location that I would replace.

Then remove the top wing nut and spring. Being careful to not drop down inside.

Then remove the 3 old filters and reverse the process. You may need to add a little oil to top off.

I had changed oil a few years ago and show that process below.

Yes, the fluid in the canister needs to be drained first.

Please verify with your chassis maker, but strongly suspect you have THREE filters stacked in the reservoir.


You will want to get all three, the top/cover gasket and enough of the proper fluid to replace the contents of the reservoir.




You will clean around and above the reservoir so you don't get dirt in the reservoir, drain or siphon the old fluid out, remove the banjo fittings and then the lid, then the wing nut holding the large washer that holds the filters in place.


Reverse order and fill with new fluid.


VERY simple!

The filter(s) don't have a metal outer shell (like an oil filter), to contain the nasties they have collected. If you just reach into the reservoir while it's full to pull out the used filters, guess where all those nasties go!

Thank you for the instructions. I believe that I only have one filter because I only have one filter number from Spartan but I will be calling them to verify. Can I get the oil that is required at auto zone, O'Reilly's or equivalent?

Is the canister like about 2' tall?

If so, it likely has 3 of the same filter stacked on top of each other.

No, I don't believe it's that tall probably closer to 16 inches just guessing.

Looking up the filter number just shows one tall filter.

Newmar coaches with shaft u-joint drive usually only have one filter with and hydraulic fan drive have the larger tank with 3 filter stack.

Update: called Spartan today to order the filter and find out if I needed one or more. They said it was only 1 filter and the filter number that I had on my sheet from Spartan school was wrong also. Glad they double checked the number I had with what they had.
