Customer Question
Hi, I’m on the...

Hi, I’m on the road in my motor home headed to Utah. My motor home is an 2014 Newmar Ventana on a Freightliner XCR chassis. 400 HP Cummins. My water in fuel warning just came on so the water needs drained out of the separator. I’ve never done this and I’m basically 130 miles from the nearest service. How far can I go before the water gets drained?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Newmar Ventana 4037. Serial number 411338

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, thanks.
