Fumoto

Does anyone know if changing your own oil voids the warranty?

If you do change your own, has anyone (if possble) replaced their plug with one of these?

Thanks as usual.

Changing you own oil does NOT void the warranty! On the first oil change I installed the Fumoto valve on our coach, they’re Great!!! I’ve used Fomoto valves on several other vehicles and love how easy they are. When changing the oil I install a short piece of plastic tubing and drain directly into a plastic jug, never a mess. I use a 48oz styrofoam cup to remove the oil filter, never a mess and no hot oil on my hands!

No problems with doing it yourself, after all you own it. It is wise to note the mileage and save the receipts should a warranty question arise.

Two thumbs up for the Fumoto drain valve. High quality product that works as advertised. I do my own oil changes and the Fumoto makes it an easy job.

FYI Federal law prohibits voiding a warranty unless manufacturer can establish a direct cause for a failure, such as forgetting the new oil when doing an oil change. Just keep records of maintenance and you should be good.

Thanks, good info!

I can guarantee in any kind of an accident that like flying, they are gonna wanna blame the pilot (driver).
