  1. 1. I don't mind changing the oil, but changing the filter is a pain. What is your practice?

    • Change oil and filter with winterization no matter how many hours

I added a remote oil filter because it was such a pain.  I'm changing oil at 50 hours since it is cheap and (now) easy.

Mine came with the remote mount and I gravity drain it with the drain pan oil hose when the oil is warm over night, so I have absolutely no excuse not to change the oil every 50 hours. I typically end the season real close to the 50 hour change point so if I run over a couple hours or so I just wait.

I voted at winterization, but I do it in the spring.

More a V-drive question, I guess. DD not a problem. Change oil and filter at 50hrs and winterization.

I only get about 50 hours per year so I just change it when I winterize it. When I winterize it I get it ready for the next year all I have to do is pull it out and start it.

What is the issue with getting to your filter?  Where is it?
