Suspect: Fumoto Valve.


As long as it does not extend down to where it could be knocked off by road debris or poor road conditions, go for it.

I cant answer your questions as to where it is on your MH but I have used one on my last couple trucks. They just replace the drain plug so wherever it is is where it goes. I have no issues with mine with over 400k miles on them in the trucks.

Some are concerned that they hang down below the oil pan and have the potential to be ripped off or opened up by some shifty character. I guess I cant say that would never happen but really do we think people are crawling around under vehicles looking for fumoto valves to open them up. As far as getting ripped off from road debris or off roading. Again I cant say it could never happen but I can say it isn't going to open by itself. Nor is something going to hit and get it to open you have to pull out on the valve and turn it down. That would have to be a really funky situation for debris to be able to do that. As far as them getting ripped off from debris again possible I am sure but highly unlikely. I do run my truck off road and bust brush at times and never been an issue or even a thought as there is bunch of other stuff down there that is going to take the hit first. It only hangs down about an inch perhaps less Again cant say any of those things could never happen but I dont think I have ever heard of it happening

All that to say that I will use one again on my next truck and not give any of that stuff a second thought

I used Fumoto valves for years on a 350 Travel Supreme and the 450 Anthem for years without any problem. Personal preference is the nipple model to drain into gallon jugs with no mess. Now with the too much oil in the 650 I have moved on to Speedco.

I've got one on our F-350 6.7 It works like a charm. I keep a cap on the nipple to keep dirt off the ball valve. Maybe unnecessarily but it makes me feel better.

Drain Plug option

Go to femco.com
Look at their selection which is enormous.

I got the plug for my Cummins 450 ISL9 as well as for my ONAN (cummins) generator.

Both use the drain hose attachment for draining the oil..

I thought it was a better alternative to the Fumoto system.

The drain plug on my 450 is on the bottom of the pan. I was concerned about shearing the Fumoto Valve off if it caught road debris but went ahead and installed it anyway. I've checked the clearance many times in many situations and haven't seen any issues.
Works for me!

I had the fumoto valve installed on my ISL. In Oregon I got of on the side of the road for a break.
Road had about a 5 inch drop off and as as I came of the road on an angle the fumoto valve hit the road edge and broke off. Dumped a 7 gallons of oil. Lucky I had shut down the engine for a lunch break , so had to get 7 gallons of oil and a new drain plug as the fumoto valve was severely damaged.

I have used a Full to valve for years without any issues. However it is exposed. It is the lowest part extending down from the engine.
Word to the wise "keep your old plug handy"

I have since replaced my missing Fumoto valve with the No Spill System. It is more compact and hopefully I won't experience a repeat of damaging it.
It is a stainless steel construction so a bit sturdier as well.

Has anyone put one on an ISX?

I was looking at the compact femco one that require a hose to drain, look like an easy way to control flow when doing a DIY oil change.
