Looking for a oil pan for Newmar Essex RV cummings 500 ISM.

Customer Question
Looking for a oil...

Looking for a oil pan for Newmar Essex RV cummings 500 ISM. Looks like parts number is *****

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

Vin number of RV is 4VZAU1C908C061253.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, I’m looking for replacement part. Evidently the last oil change done on the RV, the tech striped the threads on the oil pan. The repair service is telling me they need to replace the oil pan completely.

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

If a new one is available for my 2008 Newmar 500 hp cummings

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

In allot of cases they can install an over sized drain plug just like the one below.It taps its own new threads into the pan as they install it and can be purchased on line and usually as well as any local parts stores.

If this is not an option then they would need to speak to a dealer or RV repair facility to see if they can still get the oil pan needed.Dodge dealers should be able to get the pan as well if it is still available.What happens is after a certain amount of time the pan and other parts are not being made anymore so it can make it difficult to obtain and you may have to obtain it used from one of the facilities below.
