I use SpeedCo, they service more over the road trucks than you can count. They hire well trained service techs and invite you to watch them service your coach. I had my trucks serviced there when I owned trucks and trust them to service my coach. For you that do it your self, have fun. I used to do it but find its a lot easier and cleaner to drink a cup of coffee and watch the pros do it. Best $175 a year spent on the coach!

I agree, I enjoy working on mine, changing oil, filters, etc. I have the tools to do it, nice garage full of what I need. Keep filters on stock when I find a good deal on them. If folks want to sit in a waiting room and have a cup of coffee while some guy works on their coach, that's fine, I'll drink my coffee at my kitchen table in the morning, I would rather have that money remain in my pocket instead of putting it in Camping World or some garages till!

Even if you don't do your own service, at least crawl underneath and look. You don't have to understand everything under there, to see something wrong. And the more you look, the more you will understand....
I like this post a lot! Two Thumbs Up.

I was very impressed by their professionalism. They made me go over everything they did. There were 3 techs who each took part and checked each other's work. They have a big reputation to uphold with the trucking industry. Also, there's no appt you just drive up and get in line as it only takes about an hour. About $350 for engine and gen. complete.

I was a little worried about the increased cost of diesel maintenance. I heard expect to spend about $800.00 a year.
I changed the oil and filter on my Onan quiet diesel gennie, for $30.00
I checked my coolant balance for about $7.00 bucks for a kit from Amazon, gennie and ISB Cummins dead on within spec.
I changed my oil and filter for $80.00, bought Delo oil at Sams club, filter online, less than a hundy for everything.
Every time I brought my coach in for something at my local guy it came back with a mechanic induced issue.
I did go to CW in Sante Fe Springs and let them lube and check the slide because I wasn't familiar with the process, what a joke. I watched the guy do it and had to tell him how to!
