2015 Jayco 31 DS First Oil Change With Loose Drain Plug

Well I just made my first trip with my rig and all went well. I must say I had very few things that I can complain about. This is a GREAT rig. But that been said I just wanted to post and let everyone know that I got my rig with 2400 miles on her after it was drove out to California. So I made a small shakedown trip of 200 or so miles, and when I returned I change out my oil and filter on the rig. I am a mechanic and do enjoy doing all my own service work and not to forget to say but I had my 3 year old grandson under the rig for his first time learning about how to keep on on the rig. (this was the best part of the day).

Well after dropping the filter and cleaning the mount and replacing it with a K&N HP-2010 filter (these are the best I think) come with a 1 nut welded to the top of the canister so they can be easily wrenched-off with a standard tool. They also have Resin-impregnated filter media traps 99% of harmful contaminants. Anti-drainback valve (where applicable) eliminates dry starts, prevents oil from draining back into crankcase during engine shutdown.

I moved over to the oil pan drain plug. Wow was I amazed that when I put the socket on the plug and went to loosen it, it was very loose and not tight at all. I use a a torque wrench and torque it to 29 ft-lbs.

Just wanted to let you all know.....
