Excel program for maintenance records?

Does anyone know of an Excel program for keeping the maintenance records on a MH? Thanks!

I designed my own. It's nothing fancy, just columns to enter the date, description of the expense, mileage and amount. I set the spreadsheet up to calculate total expense and I color code repeat maintenance items like oil changes so I can easily calculate the elapsed mileage between the repeat items. I have a worksheet for the motorhome and one for the toad.

I can't seem to find it. Can you be more specific? Thanks!

Not complaining, but while this is under Free Stuff, it now costs $9.95.

Another home design spreadsheet here. I have columns for date, Description of service or repair, Provider of service/repair, Service Category, and Miles or Hours.

Service category can be anything that helps, such as air brake service, batteries, chassis heat/air, coolant, 12 volt electric, 120 volt electric.

The date column allows sorting for a historical view, while the service category column allows sorting all entries for one service category together.

I file all receipts by date as a backup to the spreadsheet.

It works well for me.

If you set it up with the historical records on one worksheet, you can even have another worksheet that looks at the mileage you changed the oil at (for example) on the historical data sheet and displays when the next service date is. Just put in =(cell from other worksheet)+(mileage interval). You can even set cells up to calculate date intervals.

I tried to download this one but it says I have to register first. I did that and it said something about sending me an e-mail confirmation, but I never got it. I don't see anywhere to log in.

I have never used Excel so I am totally incapable of designing my own maintenance program. Do you folks share your personal programs? I certainly understand if you prefer not to. Thanks!

This is a great program but like all the others I've seen thus far, one thing is missing. I like to track the odometer and genny hours in all of my records, fuel and service. This is especially good for fuel records because it helps when you are reviewing your mileage records a year or years later and see that the tank of fuel that totalled 6-7 MPG was really better because you ran the genny for 20-40 hours during that tank. This may sound like a lot of genny time for a single tank, but what if you ran the genny to and from a 10 or 15 hour one-way boondocking excursion? I hope I don't sound critical because I can't program, so I don't want to criticize something I can't do a better job of.
