Chassis lube

Is there a manual that shows the chassis lubrication points on the 2005, 34ft. Alpine Coach? I have not been able to find anything covering this. Thanks for any information. --Tom

If you know the manufacturer of your chassis and/or axles, you can have a truck lube shop look it up and probably give you a print out of the lube instructions they use when servicing it.

No manual. I believe the following is definitive, but correct me anybody if you know otherwise-
Top & bottom of king pins each side (4 total)
Front & back of drag link each end (2 total)
Left & right ball joints on tie rod (2 total)
steering column above steering box on u-joints (2 total)
Rocker shaft on 2003 and earlier brake pedal (1 total)
Brake "bell crank" 2004+ where owner had this zerk added (1 total) (zero if non existent; I don't have this one but I disassemble & lube the shaft pivots by hand every 3 years or so and if you don't your shaft will rust & stick in place w/the brakes ON)

Each of 2 U-joints, some have 1 zirc ea, some have 2ea & you usually have to feel around to the side you can't see to make sure which you have (2 or 4 total); make sure the lube applicatorer (the guy who applies the applicator) cleans these off as they will sling all the extra grease all over & make a helluva mess

Did I miss any?
When I get a lube job, I tell the tech there will be a quiz on # of zerks after he's done.

Chassis Lube

I questioned WRV as to how many Zerk fittings I had on my 2004 36MDDS. I was told there are 23. I like Mike ask the technician to count how many fittings were serviced. Only once have I had to have a recheck.
