I have a used Fumoto valve for sale
This fits the Cummins ISM engine
Part number is T203N and is size 1"-18UNF

It has a nipple at the end
The nipple is scratched a bit
The valve works perfect, guaranteed !

This will also fit : Cummins L-10, M-11, N-14, ISM,& ISN
engines

Sells for $40+ online

I am selling for $25 shipped free
within continental USA

My RV dealer charges $300 for this oil change
Doing this myself i saved $225 per oil change

Oil change literally takes less than 15 min on my 40qt engine
I use 2 x 5gal bucket to collect the waste oil and drop it off at the
local auto shop where they recycle it.


I am planning on trading the coach in the near future so parting with aftermarket accessories

Caymann, how good has this drain valve worked for you. I saw it in a magazine and thought about how many i would need for my pickups, trucks, and farm equipment. I figured it would worth a shot. I would like to try one on one of my pickups first, before i go crazy with ordering them for everything. Let me know how it worked out for you so that i can make a decision on what i'm gonna do.

Came with the Volvo - works great - one of the neat things is it can stop the drain in the middle to empty buckets oil pans

To add to what Bill posted: -- you can also stop the flow in mid-stream to take an oil sample for analysis (eg at Blackstone).

Two possible disadvantages I have experienced:
1. the flow is slower (slightly smaller hole), so it takes a bit longer,
2. the valve may extend a bit more into the pan than the plug -- so getting very last bit of oil out may be in question.
( I did not think to compare before making the one-time install.)

You will want to have a socket-set hex-wrench substitute to use with your torque-wrench to install it.
Be certain it is a good / exact fit.

My source was Geno's Garage (online store).

Make SURE the valve is not the lowest point on the engine. I read an account of a MH owner who sheared off the valve with road debris - and he ran w/o oil and blew his motor.

Hi Bigg-limo

All my vehicles have a fumoto valve ie my dodoge ram truck, wife's volvo xc90 and of course the MH
It has worked great so far.

The best thing was, stopping the oil drain in the middle of an oil change and swap out the waste buckets to resume the oil drain again.
In the past, i would have dirty oil splatter all over me.
