Maintenance for Spartan radiator fan

Iím curious if there are any maintenance needs for the engine fan or gearbox that runs the fan for the engine and the radiator in my 2017 Dutch Star. I know thereís hydraulic related maintenance such as changing the filter and fluids but is there anything around the gearbox that needs to be lubricated or changed? Thanks in advance

Spartan says the hydraulic oil does not need to be changed unless it is contaminated by something, only the filters (item 1g) require regular maintenance changes. The hydrauliclly-driven fan motor required no regular maintenance.

Their maintenance schedule is designed for full-time use, not RV's, so IMO it is OK to double their maintenance schedule intervals.

You likely have the Spartan K2 chassis, however the maintenance should be the same.
