Im new to diesel world so im loaded with questions! I have an air dog on my 08 lmm and i just changed the oil and fuel filter. Should i check the air dog filter and water seperator the same time time as the oem filters or more often, less often, help me out here. Sorry if this is a repetitive question.

Since you have the airdog, you actually don't need to change the stock fuel filter very often at all. The airdog fuel filters are good for 30k miles, and I'd easily go double that on the stock filter, as it's just mostly an extra water separator once the airdog is installed.

I'd drain the airdog water separator and stock fuel filter at every oil change, other than that, don't worry about changing filters until you get some miles on them.

why not just delete the stock filter altogether?

If the water separator leaks, screw it the opposite way lol. Pretty simple.
