Ford F53 Service Manual

2015 Winnebago Vista 36Y was recently purchased. Low and behold my local Ford Truck center can only accommodate 32 feet - so I will do routine service myself. Otherwise I would drive over an hour each way for a $200 oil change & lube. Was shocked to see grease fittings when I installed steering stabilizer. Our previous Class C had all sealed fittings. So - I would like to get a service manual for the ford chassis. Over an hour on the internet and I have come up with nothing. Anybody have a source or suggestion? I would appreciate it.

I picked up a DVD on eBay for a 2006-7 F53. "TeJay" says a friendly dealer might give you out-of-date DVDs. You can get a subscription at this link.

Check your VIN to ensure you buy/subscribe for the correct chassis year. It can be a year or two different than the "year" of your coach.

What about the RV dealer you bought it from? Or a good local place. Although I bought my 2015 from CW, for oil change , lube and service I take it to a local RV shop that is close by. Have not had any engine related issues yet that required a Ford shop for warranty work.
