Which service schedule

I would like to know from the members that have an older RV which service schedule do you follow the old M 1, 2, or 3. or the new schedule. I havenít done a totally line item comparison but the new service schedule appears not to cover all the service on the M series.

I downloaded the CAT Manual and printed out the service schedules, put in in a binder. When I go in for service I give them the book with the older schedules in them and ask that they follow them.

Using the new ones. All my service is done at FCCC in Gaffney, so that is the schedule they use. Working out ok for me,

I am found a old file that still had the M service schedules, I am going to do like you are doing when I go for the next service. Just print it out and highlight the schedule that I want done.

Join Freightliner and the 24/7 download app has all the schedules on your phone. Go to Gaffney if you can and also tour the plant for free. I ve tried to get in the school for 2 years and no luck. But, all those mechanics know there stuff. Only wish the cg was a little nicer, 7 days was a little dusty.

Thanks for the post, I have been a member of Freightliner for sometime and have the app on my phone. I went to Camp Freightliner a couple of years ago and Mike gave me a lot of information on my RV. Since then I have had the engine replaced that was why I was wondering which schedule to follow.

Don't quit trying to go to Camp Freightliner, you will get a lot from it. Mike is one fine instructor
