My Cat C13 used 8 gallons of Rotella. Oil filter and 2 fuel filters and chassis lube last year at Alliance coach was $500. It sounds like I spent too much. Where in Central Florida would someone recommend going for a better price?

Not in central FL but these guys are just over the line in GA on both I95 and I85:

Your C13 would be heavy duty @ $249.99 that included chassis lube. You would need to add the second fuel filter. There standard filters are Baldwin but they have Fleetguard for a small up charge. Most likely have Cat also.

Buying in bulk saves a lot of the cost of oil. I buy Mobil Delvac 15W40 at a local farm supply store when they run a sale, cost after rebate = $39.95 for a 5G pail. I always have a pail on-hand, and buy another when the sale hits. Wonder what CW pays for several 55G drums ordered at the same time? CW OTOH, uses Shell Rotella 15W40 so price may be different.

Oil change

I got my wires crossed, Rotella cost me per oil change 13.97 a gallon comes to $69.85, I keep several oil filters on hand Baldwin, Fleetguard, they average about $31.-$36. I change fuel filters every other year and coolant filter every two years. My manual recommends changing engine oil every 1 years or 15,000 miles which ever comes first, 1 year always coming first. During the change I also grease, have 22 zerk fittings. This year changing the differential oil to synthetic gear lub.
Having a diesel does cost more than a gasser, but you get so much more power and a bigger and better coach. Love going over the mountains and not having a gas engine which is passed by everything and sounds like it is going to fly apart.

Cummins estimate

Just bought our Monaco DP this year and called cummins for estimate to service and inspection. They recommend oil/filter change and generator serviced annually. Since prior owner used synthetic oil, we need to stay with that apparently.

Estiimate - oil/filter change and service - $306.00
Generator service (every 150 hrs or annually) and chassis lube - $340.00
Inspection $132.50

Total - $778.50

Learning much about how expensive RV's can be.

Waaaaaaay too much. Shop before you need service.

It's a Old Wives Tail that you can't switch. Sure you can switch between synthetic and conventional oils. Although the cost difference isn't all that much. From Tractor Supply:
Shell Rotella T 5W40 Conventional Oil, 1 gal. $14.99
Shell Rotella T6 5W40 Full Synthetic Oil, 1 gal. $22.99
As you can see, $8 more per gallon or $40 more for 5 gallons.


This is a quote from Valvoline Oil Company.

Quote:
Is it ok to switch back and forth between regular and synthetic motor oil? I heard this causes leaks? Is this true?
Switching between synthetic and conventional oil does not cause problems. Because the oils are compatible, you can switch back and forth as often as you like.
Also from Castrol Oil:

Quote:
If I go to a synthetic do I have to stay with a synthetic oil?

All of Castrol's oils are fully compatible with one another, and there is no cause for concern if you choose to switch from conventional to synthetic or vice versa. Because of this, it is not necessary to flush the engine. It is a common myth that you cannot go back to conventional motor oil after using synthetic.

Even if you've switched to premium synthetic motor oil like Castrol Syntec, you can always go back to conventional oil ...

OK so I'm beginning to see how CW can do a simple oil change so cheaply.
Sure wish they had the talent to do more than simply changing oil.
Rv Specialists in San Diego I'm sure buys the Delvac in the big drums for about $2.00 a Qtr. They charge $7.50 a quart for a oill change.! Very large profit margin. They also charge $75 for the oilf filter that we can get online for $35.
Wish we had some competition here in San Diego. The only alternatives here are the RV dealerships and they mark up the same.

Last time I had broght a rig to CW was shortly after I purchased my 93 Pace Arrow Diesel pusher. The magnet was missing on the screen door so the stairs would not automatically retract. Girkins backed rig out of bay & clipped the steps. hey replaced with new steps BUT I found out about 2 years later they replaced with the wrong steps! Too long to take it back and get them to replace. Was their for an safty inspection, required yearly here in NH.


I do all my own oil changes. RotellaT, six one gallon jugs that works out to about $12/gal. You can get the 2.5 gallon jugs, still about 12/gal. I even looked up the 55 gallon drum for $615 but that works out to about 11.18/gal. so not a big savings going for the 55 gallon drum but Googling 55 gallon drum prices that's the best I could find.


What do the Speedie Lube shops charge & what filters/oil they use?
