Stealth built in generator question

I have a '14 WA2313 with the built in Onan RV QG 4000 Evap generator. I want to change the oil before we go camping in a few weeks. It is not stored at home so I want to take everything I need to change the oil to the storage place.

From a youtube video I saw I assume it does not have an oil filter? and that it takes 1.6 quarts of 15W40 oil?

Tools I think I will need are a t30 torx bit and socket; a socket set for the drain plug; drain pan; some teflon tape for the drain plug and paper towels for clean up.

Am I missing anything? Thanks in advance for any help.

Looks about right. Did not need the tape. Plug was straight threads.

Thanks. The two youtube videos I saw looked like the plug had oil on it. Didn't see a crush washer so I figured the teflon tape might be a good idea.

Surprised as expensive as these generators are that they don't have a screw on oil filter (or any type of oil filter for that matter).

Instead of thread tape I would use lock tight instead. It is my preference but thread tape is usually used by plumbers on water fixtures with temps not usually exceeding 130. Lock tight is what I use on my kx 500 and that being said can withstand high heat. Plus there is no chance of debris getting into the motor but I don't think the tape would cause any type of problem. And also where do you live? I run the sae 30 because I live in Southern California and temps hardly ever drop below freezing. So I would match your oil to your environment. 9/16 socket. I also blow out the air filter every oil change and change it every other oil change unless it look nasty in between. That's mainly why I blow out the filter just to put my eyes on it. My generator is very important to my as we do a lot of camping in the mojave desert riding and gold prospecting and AC is almost as good as finding gold
