New DS4328 Spartan-Oil Change

Just checking in with the experts- just reading up on maintenance etc for new Coach and if Iím reading correctly the manual says that oil change comes at either 12mo-500hrs-or 20K mi ?? Am I understanding that correctly? Thanks

Yup. I'm changing every 12 months as I don't hit the hours or mileage.

I did my oil change at 1 year from the chassis build date which was at 6 months from the coach build date. I change the oil every 12 months after that. We drive 10 - 12 k miles per year. This is what was recommended by Freightliner. Not sure what Spartan says, but we have the same engine.

Freightliner has a website with all the parts, drawings, recalls and information about the chassis. That is where I got it, not sure about Spartan. I am not in my coach, but it should also be on the manufacturer labels in the coach.

Spartan says to do it on time and not worry about the mileage. I plan on going that route.

Just remember your engine warranty is with Cummins not Spartan. When I took the spartan class they said 15k or one year. I believe Cummins says 20,000 or annual on the L9.
