Its the worst setup for water drain I have seen. Its because its under the truck, needs to be foolproof. I drain mine through the filter cap, so far the Allen screw will not budge so I carry a filter wrench with me all the time anyway in case the Light comes on. So far no need to do between filter change. On my VW, It has a water container by the tank, I open the drain valve while not freezing outside, and let it flow till there is a steady stream. Water will drip and oil will not. I do this quite often because its easy, but on the truck its a challenge. Now I think about it I could just install one on the tank line by the tank, I have a few of those at home.
I was at a dealer in florida with my truck and I mentioned I had checkd the frame filter for plugging and the service tech laught. He said the filter has to be some dirty to affect the operation of these trucks, Its alway safe to be ready for a dirty shot of fuel with a clean filter, but in 17 years I never got one yet.
