Oil change should be close to 10,000mi. I do oil change (on 8V-71) at 5,000mi. To really answer, you should get your oil analyzed. Good Luck, TomC

Change them one at a time, running the engine between each. That will help retain prime.

I have a fuel pressure gauge on the secondary filter. You should see 60 psi at fast idle if I remember correctly. Whatever it is, when you see it decreasing is the time to change filters.

And carry a set of spare filters with you to have on the road.

I also have a pressure gauge on the secondary filter, as much as anything to know if the pump is not working right.   I just bought a Racor fuel filter restriction gauge which will go on the output of the primary filter  -  it's a simple suction gauge, but it's marked with green/amber/red to show if the primary filter is becoming blocked.   Unfortunately this gauge is exactly 2" diameter and without any of the usual automotive-style clamps, so mounting it in my rear start panel will not be straightforward (as if anything ever is . . .)

  Interesting Bruce. It would depend on if you use the big 3 inch hose like most do. If so I would use it on if only for the fact that you can use a short 10 foot garden hose or up to a 150 foot of 5/8 hose instead. A lot easier to clean and store. I drain the tanks first black and then the grey through the black and out through the shared 3"exit pipe right into the disposal. I have a top 3 inch fitting I remove and spray out the tank through it with anti-siphon coupling as well as straight down the disposal after done and the hose that I drained through. Roll up and drain then connect the ends together and put it away. Simply and no ripples in the hose to collect any stuff you don't want in your bays. HTH

Drove coach today in the hills of southern Georgia. It was 94 degrees F and coach just hovered in the upper 190's. Still not what I'm looking for. Tonight it dropped down to 82 and coach ran 75mph all the way without breaking a sweat. So I still have warming issues during hot days. Have to sort this out

Scott - I think that's pretty normal for a stock 8v92 with stock cooling.  Our 6v92 runs at about 195 closing in on 200 when pulling hills in 95+ temps.

Scott - it'll smoke and stink if the pads are saturated with oil. That 90w oil smells nasty when it burns up.  You'll smell it in stop and go traffic or braking down a good incline.
