Trying to determine where the fuel filter is located on my fleetwood? It has the 5.7L TBI engine. any help would be welcomed. Just bought it a week ago and trying to give it a full tune up may not even need it it runs great but I prefer to just do everything right away so I know when it will need it from now on. She only has 79k on her and I want to keep her running a long time.

It was on the passenger side just in front of the rear wheel on mine. I would imagine it is in the same place for you. very easy to get to. one bolt and it had the easy disconnects.

Make sure that you have a couple of rags handy. Also, keep the little nipple cover, or whatever its called, on the end of the filter. It will prevent fuel loss.

I'd do this job outside so the fumes can vent. Changed a fuel filter in my garage one time, then halfway through I looked at the hot water heater's pilot light, about 5 feet away from where I was working.
