2011 Winnebago/Itasca 40U fuel filter

I have never changed my fuel filter. I am thinking, with over 40K, I should do it. Does anyone know where it is located on this coach?

Thanks for your help.

Not at all, Jeffery. I have 40K+ on the coach and I think it is time. I always get my fuel from the big truck stops or from very well used fuel stations like Walmart or Costco.

Our filters are not easy to find as on some other makes. I know where the water separator is but not the other filter. Any help that will shorten my time on the ground under the coach is greatly appreciated.

If like mine you have 2 filters. One is located on the right side of the engine, I can see mine when opening the DEF door. This 1 is the filter/water separator. Can't help you on the second 1. I'll have to find it though. This year I'll have my service provide me with a pair of extra filters just in case.

I have the 360hp, NO DEF 8.3 so mine might be different than yours, but the fuel filter is right next to the fuel water separator.

In researching whether I should/ can used B20 bio diesel I was advised to change the fuel filter more often with B20 as it cleans out the fuel system.

I thought once a year, or every 15000 miles is the recommended interval. So more often when you switch to bio diesel. Then back to your regular interval when staying with B20.

Thank you Jeffery. I'll take another look under the coach near the water separator. I don't recall seeing the other filter there. Good picture. Looks so clean under there. Nice.

I try to avoid B20 but I have had to use it on occasion. What you have said causes me to feel even more need to change this filter.
