Clay, you're correct I forgot the Slip-joint on the drive shaft. However, that still leaves a total of 13, but that counts the brake bell crank. I only have four on the drive shaft, and nine on the front. Curious to why the difference. I don't want to miss any.

Also notice on the diagram, like the one Tom included on his post there is a #16 with the arrow pointing to the rear of the transmission but there is no #16 on the key listing what they are.

We get an annual complimentary lube/oil & filter change and a wash on the anniversary month we bought our MHs from the dealer. Sales dept pays for the service. We travel about 4K to 5K a year.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

Relax, drive safely, and enjoy God's creations.

I noticed you mentined "2 quart filter"
Which filter do you use ??

I have been using a Mobil 1 Synthetic filter, however I've never seen a large capacity one.

Thanks

Gregg, WIX filter #51794 is a 2-quart filter. NAPA also has this filter. NAPA filters are supplied by WIX. The NAPA part# might be slightly different but they do have it. I order mine directly from WIX. WIX If you order over their minimum, I forget what it is, but it amounts to about 3 filters the shipping is free. The cost is typically better then local parts store prices.

I do the same as Tom N, I take a copy of the lube chart with me when I take our motorhome in for oil and lube. I give it to the lube shop service manager and tell him "Here, I brought this along because I didn't know if you had one or were aware of the location of all the grease zerks". They always thank me and I can see them referring to the chart as they perform the service. The first time I took the chart with me I was surprised when they moved the motorhome forward a little bit as they were greasing it, I had never seen them do that before and I realized they were now greasing zerk fittings on the drive shaft and probably other areas of the chassis that were getting missed before! There is a nice schematic and list in the Workhorse Chassis Guide that you can make copies of to take with you to the service shop. IMHO Amsoil is the best product you can use with your motorhome, but as far as I know only Castrol Transynd synthetic transmission oil is approved by Allison so that's what I'm using in the tranny. Transynd is much harder to find than Amsoil, in fact most of the service shops I've talked to have never even heard of Transynd and cannot get it but either stock or can get Amsoil.

It is the little things like covers the zerk fittings.
Grease Fitting Dust Caps to keep the dirt out. Look at # 1098K14 from Mc Mastercarr (www.mcmaster.com) but they do come packs of 100. They do works really good.
