Maxxforce 10 Radiator Flush

I was wondering if anyone has done this service or had it done yet and approximate cost etc? I would think on my 2012 should probably get it done sometime in the near future and do most of the service myself but probably will not attempt this.

I did a search for MAXXFORCE 10 and did not come up with much, what is it?, and maybe a link so I can see it.
I think you may have the yellow long life antifreeze. If it were me I would check the I think it's called PH balance on it. They have a thing like litmus paper or a tester thingy. How do you like my words, lol. If there is no rust, I would just change it anyway due to time. Sometimes flushing causes problems.
When I look to buy a vehicle, the first thing I do is open the radiator cap, if it has one. If I see rust of any amount, I stop and move on. JMHO.

Maxxforce 10 Radiator Flush

I too have a 2012 Knight with the Maxxforce 10. It was delivered with an "extended life" coolant. I have 38K miles on it now and just sent a coolant sample to JG Lubricants a little over a week ago. The lab report I received stated that no maintenance is required.

Thank you. Exactly the kind of information I was looking for. I will wait at least another year or so because I am sure the flush will not be cheap. I try and do most maintenance myself because have not had a good experience taking it in for work. Many truck places seem to not want to touch motorhomes and the camping dealer close to me that will charged me over $850 for a simple oil change. Will not take it back to them again under any circumstances.
