Service center recommendations

Hello,
We are full-timers looking for Cummins Service Center recommendations around the country. Right now we just need an oil change service, but would like to know of good and bad experiences of others...
Thanks to all

Can be a good source. Mosts Cummins Care Facilities will take good care of you on the normal maintenance. Join the Cummins Power Club, as the discount on parts will usually be covered over the year by just normal maintenance, don't forget your generator service too. And then if you have a problem, the discount on parts can really help.

That being said, for normal yearly LOF, many just stop at Speedco (I have not done so, but may try it sometime.) Just specify the kind of filters you want, or better yet, bring your own after buying them from Cummins with the Power Club discount. Don't let them put on an inferior filter.

If not done so yet, have oil sample analysis pulled. If it comes back looking good, then you can go every other year on the sample pulling - but at least you'll have a good baseline.

OK some shops I've had good results with are:
-Souther California Region
>Colton Truck
>Rincon
>Cummins Cal Pacific (El Cajon store)
>Temecula Valley RV

Arizona
>Hansen Enterprise Fleet Repair (Top notch owner/mechanic)

Colorado
> Rocky Mountain Cummins - Grand Junction

Utah
> Jay's Diesel Service (Yep, another handshake honest mech!)

Washington
> Brazel's (Nice people, and Alan and Jon care!)

Oregon
> Oregon Motor Coach (Great high end quality experience!)
> Premier RV (Have not been, but great word of mouth.)
> Carrier & Son's (Have not been, but also good word of mouth)

I'll stop here, but wanted to plug those that I knew of first hand, and those that I would have not concern going to.

Best of luck to you, travel safe, have fun,
Smitty

I use Speedco for lube and oil/filter changes. They use Fleetguard fuel filters and Baldwin oil filters.

About half the price of Cummins centers and less than half the wait time as they are first come first served

We don't full time but did use Speedco once with our previous DP. It was a satisfactory experience for routine service.

Also agree that the Cummins Coach Care centers are likely going to be more expensive but can do more than Speedco if necessary. We use the Cummins Coach Care in Daleville, VA (near Roanoke). It is right off I-81 and the folks there are professional and it is a very clean shop. I just had my annual service done there which included 29 qts oil, oil filter, two fuel filters, chassis lube, check front hub lube, check coolant (had to add two gallons of concentrate), and engine oil analysis. Charge was $780.

Like most Coach Care centers, they have several 30/50 amp sites and a fresh water fill and dump station.
