Congrats on your new coach! the oil change would be several thousand miles, depending on your engine. If its new, it will have an Owner's Manual. This will give you all the information you need about recommended oil change intervals and many more service items.

Good Luck!

If it's brand new I'd check with the dealer or whoever is going to be doing the engine warranty work.

My rule of thumb is to change out my oil and filters once a year, regardless of how many miles I put on the coach. I've never come close to the 15k that's recommended. The most I ever put on it in one year was a little over 9k.

Also have the tranny fluid and filters checked and don't forget the generator. Best of luck and safe travels !

Once a year or 10000 for me with fuel filters at the same time and lube the drive shaft at 5000.

For my ISL it's 20K mile or one year. I am not likely to that many miles before the year is up so I change mine annually.

Dang thought I could get away with out that , its a 300 diesel , I have tons of manuals and I look threw them on the road , ( I told you no walk thru they delivered it from UT) and I have found out that the manuals are for CTB and doesn't tell me a thing never did learn how to get the hot water tank on , the information was so poorly written . and not for a newbie, I found out about the Jake Brake on my own love love it . it was a total waste of time for me now this is my me , found out the hard way you had to add the additive in another holding tank for the diesel so there is tons to learn with help or thru trial and error but thank you
