FCCC arrival today

Just arrived at the FCCC Service Center in Gaffney SC for tomorrows class and the 6K mi service. If any other IRV2 folks are around come say hi. I very much enjoy these forums and learn more every day.

Well, I'm not around (in fact I'm about as far away as I can be, in WA), but you'll enjoy and benefit from this class. We've been twice, and learned a lot each time-- probably more the second than the first! Mike Cody's classroom style is sort of free-ranging, but his FL experience and knowledge are broad, deep, and detailed. You will leave Gaffney saturated and satisfied.

I'll be careful there John. The class was great and well run. Definitely learned a few things. Headed to Napannee tomorrow for some warranty stuff but nothing serious.

6k maintenance??? What is needed at 6,000 miles? Guess I better read my manual :-(.
I wanted to go to one of these classes, but didn't sign up in time. Guess I'll go next summer.

I'd like to learn more than a 6K service. What classes are offered?

Thanks!

If you are a member of Freightliner Chassis Owner's Club, you can go to their website and print current maintenance schedules from Freightliner. They don't call them M1, M2 and M3 services anymore, they are now 6 month, 12 month, 24 month, 48 month schedules. I don't have my book with me or I would attach the schedules for you. Sorry.

Better info for you. You go to www.freightlinerchassis.com, point to maintenance manuals. Then point to RV chassis on the next menu for rv's. The maintenance manuals are on the bottom right of the page. Click that and it comes up in PDF format and you can print just the maintenance schedules themselves by printing pages 14-23. I am not sure if you must be a member of FCOC to use this website or not so I would try it anyway.

The Camp Freightliner is a 2 day training course held at the Freightliner facility in Gaffney, SC (and other locations) Discusses systems and maintenance for your motorhome. Camp Freightliner

While you are at the facility you can have routine maintenance performed on your rig. In this case the 6000 miles service was done while they were in class...
You do not have to be a member to download information from the site..

Thanks for the info guys. I have done a lot of maintenance on my 93 Pace Arrow Diesel on an Oshkosh chassis. I just upgraded to an 07 Discovery and have a ton of learning to do. Been reading alot but a class would be a great experience!
Moving from Hydraulic disc brakes to Air brakes/bags on a Freightliner chassis has been a BIG learning experience!

Thanks for the info.
