According to Barney’s blog, he had his fuel filter changed and they told him it would be good for 15,000 miles. When I had my RV serviced, they changed the oil in both the Generator and the main engine, installed new oil filters, and installed new fuel filters. I asked the young fellow how many miles before I need an oil change. He said two to three thousand miles. I said that he just put four gallons of Rotella oil in it, not four to six quarts. So he said maybe I could go twice that far. I don’t think that kid knew what he was talking about. I guess I will have to do a search and find out the average mileage suggested between changes. When he changed my fuel filter, he said the same thing, so I purchased a spare. I figured that there is always a chance of getting a bad batch of fuel. I do have a way of draining the water out of the bottom of the fuel tank. That ought to be done every so often, if I ever remember to do it. Now I see on Barney’s blog that his can go for 4 to 5 times what I was told about mine. Here is a picture of my fuel filter, is it about the same size as yours, Barney?
And another thing, since I am complaining; I thought that Caterpillar was an American company, so why are the genuine Caterpillar filters made in the
? Don’t believe me? Look here: Czech Republic
Of course, if the amount of miles I am putting on the RV is consistent with future mileage, these filters will last 100 years!! Got to get around to using it, but have so many projects that need done around the home, I suppose it will not be used for a while.
We got rain storms last night. I first heard the thunder about 02:00 when my oldest dog woke me. She is deathly afraid of anything that goes boom or bang. The heavy winds and rain didn’t get here until around 05:00 and they passed by quickly. Had some heavy winds with them, but no damage here and the winds switched and are now coming out of the NNW, so it will cool off, maybe back to normal.
I went to the hardware store this morning instead of the flea market and got supplies to try and complete another project that has been started but never finished. Getting good at putting things off. Sorry I am late with the blog, but at least I got it on.
You all have a great day now, you hear?
