Iam not suggesting one does not do a once a year grease job and Inspection.All I said is there is no need to spend $1000 Plus each year to have MH serviced unless your doing the 15-20 K miles per year which like 1% ever do.Having a grease job and overall inspection is in the under $200 neighbourhood
syntec 295 allison oil is good for 400K miles
freightliner and sparton error on the side of caution plus their also in the after sales maintenence money market also
I only go 4000 miles per year so i change my oil and filters every 3-4 years but I grease and inspect once a year,I will never in my life change the allison trans oil because i will never ever go 100K never mind 400K.I do the fuel filters every 3-4 years also
