We had both the oil and transmission changed out last April.
The transmission was $385.58. We took 5 gallons of transmission fluid and filter. The labor part was $110, the fluid and filter was $220.32 and the rest was taxes.
The oil change, filter & chassis lube was $242.59. 9 gallons of oil, lube grease and filter was $110 and labor was $105. Rest was taxes
The work was done at W. W. Williams in MI. They also looked it over for any other possible problems and gave us a quote for other possible things. Since we did all of it together we did get $62 off the total bill, lol. His job paid for the oil change while we paid for the transmission part.
Hope this helps you figure out the cost, well close to what it might cost.

EDIT: Oh I forgot they not only fixed a few things without cost, they let Thom be in the service area to walk with them and explain things that he had questions on. They also gave us books on our transmission and what info they had on the engine since we had no info on it. They were extremely helpful.

I use a small diesel shop that lets me bring my own oil and filter. For $65 they change and discard the oil/filter and lube the chassis.

I just got a quote from an Authorized Spartan Service center for a complete front to back service. All filters, oil, trans, lube, chasis check, gen service....etc and parts and fluids to include airfilter and hydraulic fluid filter was about $500.00. Then 1.5 hrs for chasis/gen service, .5 hrs for chasis lube and complete chasis check and 1.0 hrs for trans service, all at $121.00 per hour. So for about a small grand....LOL

BUT, we just bought this coach in November and really don't know the full maintenance history on it. We did find out that the dealer lied about doing a full service on it........that dealer is EASTGATE RV AND MARINE in CORBIN, KY.

So I just decided to go to Spartan this time and get a stem to stern service and check so that I have a good baseline. Then from this point I will do my own service as I have done on my other coaches.

Here is one more plug for my good friends at EASTGATE RV AND MARINE in CORBIN, KY. What a bunch of lying sacks of shi$$$$$$. They attempted to screw me on not paying my trade off, then they left me holding a bill to get the charger/inverte rebuilt, and now I find out they didn't service anything.....but they did clean the filters real nice for that shinny new appearance.....EASTGATE, you guys rock.

Speedco lube, oil and 3 filters - $239.99

Speedco generator oil change, oil filter and fuel filter -$49.99

Generator air filter will be a little more if it needs to be changed.

Speedco oil analysis including TBN level-$17.99

They will also check your differential, oil bathed front axle bearings and tires.

SCA levels and freezepoint of your coolant will be checked and reported to you.

The differential, front axle and coolant checks are included in the prices above.

You will be in and out in less than one hour and your oil will be nice and hot for a good drain.

Well, 1 quart is anywhere from $4 to $6 depending on brand at the auto stores. The oil per gallon for me was $14.43 a gallon for a total of $129.87 for just the oil.
We would have done it all ourselves but like another poster we took it in for more than just the oil and transmission changes. Now we know for sure how much it takes for them AND the part numbers for the different filers and stuff.

Yearly on differential change????

That would seem to be very excessive

I didn't say I did it, just that that's what the manual for the differential/axle says. That same axle is used in a lot of high mileage trucks and much heavier loads than an RV. It's a 20,000# rated truck axle.
