We are picking up our new used motorhome, a 2007 Forest River Lexington 283TS GTS model next week and want to perform some minor maintenance before we go on our first trip. It is on a 2006 E450 Ford Chassis. I would like to know what type of oil is recommended (Viscosity, Synthetic blend or full Synthetic) and does anyone know the Motorcraft or Fram Oil Filter #? Thanks for any information.

I use Motorcraft 5w20.I don't have the Fumoto valve in the MH but have one on the car well worth the money.

Install a Fumoto valve (F-106 model fits the V10 triton) in place of the drain plug when you do your first oil change - It will make subsequent changes a piece of cake. I put one in ours and love it......

5W20 (although I prefer dyno) as the recommended oil.

PF 1250 is the AC Delco filter number, if you need that.

I personally use Pronto filters P04651 as they are a lot cheaper and of equally good construction as OEM. Roughly $1.75ea.

I use the Motorcraft FL820S oil filter and Mobil 1 full synthetic 5W-20 oil and change the oil once a year.

If you're used to changing oil and filters, you'll find the V10 easy. Since the filter is mounted vertical, it's easy to get any kind of wrench onto to remove it. But! The Oil Cooler Adapter is above the filter, so you get a lot more oil draining out once the filter is off than you might expect. Way more than you want to trap with newspaper. Some kind of pan for sure!

Ford E-450 6.8 10 cyl 2012. If the engine did not come with Mobile 1 synthetic oil can it just be introduced with the next oil change? OR is any flushing out required?
