I bought a 1992 Winnebago Rialta with a 2.5L 5 cylinder VW

Customer Question

I bought a 1992 Winnebago Rialta with a 2.5L 5 cylinder VW engine this summer and would like to change the oil, but can not locate the oil filter. Can you help?
JA: When was your last oil change?
Customer: I haven't changed the oil since I bought it. The previous owner said the oil should be good for a couple thousand miles, and I've put a little over 1,000 miles on it.
JA: What is the model of your '92 RV?
Customer: I do not have that information handy. It is 19' long and has an fabricated steel box affixed on the back where the spare is located.
JA: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I've crawled underneath it but as stated could not locate the filter.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Just that I really like this small unit and love the mileage I get!

the filter should be located on the underside of the engine if you look upwards on the exhaust side of the engine to locate the spin on filter
