Interesting, I've used CW for years here, never had a problem. Always great service and good work.

Transmission - filters, fluid

Air system - Air Dryer filter, dump valves

Those are the ones I felt comfortable doing, the rest of the (long) list is going to be farmed out (if I can find a Freightliner shop with halfway decent reviews). Things like changing coolant & thermostats, serpentine belt, brake and suspension service & adjustment.

It's been an adventure.



Here is an idea...

when you have the filters changed, have the shop give you all the old ones.

that way you learn both the part numbers and (more importantly) how
many filters they really changed.

Not that I don't trust the shops, but that work is often given to the
youngest/least trained worker!

Another tactic I've used is to mark on the filters with waterproof marker. I use my initials, and a date. When you get your filters back you know they are from your coach. Caught a shop not changing filters on one of my business trucks, cost them all my business.

Makes you wonder. Caught a shop doing the same and the owner was mortified. Apparently his new-hire / trainee was lazy and figured he get away with it.

Got the next to services for free.
