Fumoto Engineering of America is now offering an easy-to-install Engine Oil Drain Valve for the RV market.

It is a quick-release, spring-assisted brass ball valve that replaces the standard crankcase oil drain plug for a quicker oil change with less mess and no tools required.

To drain your engine oil, simply lift the lever from its locked position and give the valve a quarter turn to open and the oil will drain out in a steady, straight flow, so you don’t have to worry about your hands coming into contact with the hot oil. The ball valve creates a perfect seal when closed. It’s also a great tool for oil analysis, as you can draw a small amount of oil from the bottom of the pan by opening the valve, making it easy to check up on the health of your engine.

Product Oil Change valve1The valve can be used on several different motorhome engines, including Caterpillar and Cummins.
