Fleetguard LF3970 is the Cummins recommended filter for my 2014 37TS, engine was assembled in 2013.

To find out a whole lot about your Cummins engine register with Cummins QuickServe Online. You will need your engine serial number. You can see a complete parts breakdown for your specific engine and application.

I agree that 15k is what Cummins recommends. I have the oil changed and fuel filters done annually along with the Onan genny.

As far as the suspension question - the airbags on our coach do lose air over time - usually takes around 5 hours or so before the mudflap is hitting the ground. The only time I've heard air leaking / hissing from the bags is when the leveling jacks are used. They empty pretty fast when the weight comes off the real axle.

I wonder how much better my ride would be if I let some air out of the tires. I usually run ours with 110psi cold - it can be pretty rough on some of the back roads around here.

I dropped my tires to 95psi cold. It was noticeable the difference in ride.

For safety I've always understood that the amount of air in the tires should be based on the axel loads and not for ride comfort.

Exactly correct. 110psi cold is max pressure for max load. According to the inflation/load chart 95psi cold is still higher than necessary for the load of the Seneca and improves the ride. It is best to weigh each axle with the unit fully loaded to know exactly. We travel with just two people and the unit almost empty.

Agreed - I weighed ours on the way home from out last trip - full fuel, 1/3 water, 2 adults, three dogs, probably still enough supplies for another weekend, and we were at 23,660 (max is 28k). Seems there is some room to reduce the pressure a bit for a smoother ride.

Are you towing a toad? If so what's your combined weight and what sort of mileage are you getting?

I wonder what others with late model Senecas weigh in their normal travel configuration? Maybe that should be its own topic.

We tow a Honda CR-V. Combined weight was ~27,500.

We will be towing a Jeep Wrangled Rubicon four door, approx. 4500 lbs. with our 2014 Seneca TS. I estimate a total of 29000 lbs with all our gear and liquids. I have not weighed the combination but will at the first opportunity. Have only had the Seneca three week and will tow the Jeep for the first time tomorrow.

We have a Dodge Journey that we'll tow using a Acme EzTow if we get a Super C. The weight is about 4,100 but with the dolly it will come in around 4,300 so we should end up close to the same when it's all done.

I think the Jeep cable converts the standard 4 pin trailer signals to CAN bus instructions to the Body Control Computer on the Jeep. It would be nice if that controller would work the Journeys BCC but that would be a very, very, very long shot.

No one to date has made a standalone controller to do the same thing for other vehicles but I've designed a system that will connect into the lighting connectors so it will basically do the same thing but just not as elegant. By using mating connectors inline with the lights it can be removed at any time incase any servicing needs to be done.
