if 5/14 is the date, that is long overdue for replacement.

Clean the screen in the clear plastic container also.
Be gentle with it and the 0 ring.

agreed.

Iíve had the coach for <2 years sand havenít put many miles on it. from what I can tell, the previous owner put ~5k miles on it since it was installed.

time wise it was long overdue.

I would like to do that, too, but itís unclear to me how to remove it and since itís plastic I didnít want to risk damaging it since it appeared ok to me.

I may research the part numbers and buy replacements to do the job.

You need to disconnect the wire connector on the bottom first.

Then use a large channel lock type filter wrench and just loosen the plastic bottom section. Put a small piece of inner tube over the filter wrench jaws so you do not damage the plastic bowl.

Then remove the entire canister.

Be careful as the small diameter o-ring will probably stay on the threaded nipple above the canister. Remove it and replace with a new one.

There are two other large diameter o-rings, one on the bottom canister and one on the top.

Just Buy a New Complete filter

Super easy filter to change out just like a regular auto oil filter so just buy a complete filter and not screw around with putting old components on a new canister. Go on YouTube and watch the videos.

Also, I suggest that you ensure the new filter/separator is filled with diesel fuel before putting in back on. The first time I changed a fuel filter I did not fill it. System had a little manual pump I was suppose to use to build up pressure. Pumped the heck out of the manual pump but still cranked so much that I ran batteries dead trying to restart. Since then I have always ensured filters are filled with diesel before reinstalling and never had a problem.

depends on the motor you have. some ISC's recommend NOT prefilling.
