Engine oil

Hi all, when I first got my camper the oil was not new but clear, and I don't think the van had run for a few years. Once I had it running again in short bursts it started to build up a bit of the milky stuff. I assumed it was probably a build up of condensation/water in the system so once I'd worked on the engine a bit more and got it running well I got it up to temp and it seems to only be a trace amount now on the dipstick and nothing anymore in the rocker cover oil filler pipe. Should I be concerned any more about this? I was planning on replacing the engine oil anyway, which leads me to my second question.

Should I stick to a 10w/40 semi synthetic engine oil or replace with something else like a fully synthetic.

Thanks, Nick

never use fully synthetic oil in the Beddy as it will destroy the oil pump seals.
never use flushing oil either for the same reason as above.
10/40 is good to use

slight mayonnaise is normal at the filler neck as this it the coolest part of the engine.
