As far as the filter element, 10 micron was what was originally recommended however it was later changed to 20 micron (2040 TM I believe) as the recommended element. NAPA and O'Reilly's both carry a WIX equivalent replacement filter element.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! Glad to hear these specific filters are available. Just to confirm, I should probably replace the entire unit, as opposed to just the element, as the turbine portion is broke.
When I do this, I assume there are fuel shut-off valves, where can these be found?
THANKS

Funny how different these insurance companies can be. I got no response from the guy's company that hit me, yet my company just called giving me an update on the repairs. Here's Brett willing to assist, yet Randy's company is MIA???!!!

Hi Brett- when you replace the 900FG- make sure that the new one you get has a fuel heater and water-in-fuel sensor connections (if your coach has that alarm). It will not look exactly like your old one- but should work just fine. The old bowls had clips and pins on the bowl. New units have a wire loom coming out of the center metal assembly and need to be hard-wired to the old leads.

Also- another pesky problem was that fuel would leak out of the bowl if the tank in the coach was really full and I was changing filters. I'd get a "petroleum-safe", full flow ball valve for the supply side, so that you can disassemble and clean the filter assembly from time to time.

Brett,

I have a new, in the box, FG900. The prior owner replaced the original Racor with a spin on. I was going to reinstall the Racor but the plumbing was all changed and since the only time I've replaced the spin on in 9 years was for routine maintenance I decided to
not fix it if it ain't broke! I'll let you know what I have after this weekend.
