I have been using RVtodolist.com as a backup for a while now. I like some of the features and others are so..so. I do like that I get an email reminding me of what needs attention. It costs nothing to take a look and try it and it does provide a good printable record. ToDo List web Get Mail Name

I don't buy extended warranties either.

I think the best method is whatever works for you.

For me, the excel spreadsheet makes my life easier. Every maintenance item is logged with date and mileage along with a sort code such as 12 volt electrical, 120 volt electrical, engine oil/filter, genset, etc. The excel sort function makes quick work of finding an entry.

I file all of the maintenance receipts in date order. I can find the item in the spreadsheet, find the date, and then go directly to the receipt. Since I do most of my own maintenance, I almost never need to see the receipt. No warranties exist on my old motorhome.

I use a software program called Fleet Maintenance Pro. I started using it when I had to keep service records for a fleet of cars and trucks. Thankfully I no longer have to do that. However I still use it for all our personal cars, trucks, tractors, Motorhome, etc, etc. I currently track all the maintenance intervals and costs for 57 pieces of equipment.

It's a fairly sophisticated program in that it can track not only the service end of things, but also the fuel cost, insurance, licenses, permits, and an inventory of over a thousand parts. You can track everything by time or miles. It even has a feature that gives alerts when maintenance intervals are near.

They also make 2 personal versions that can track 5 or 10 vehicles. The personal versions are extremely reasonably priced @ $34.95 for the 5 vehicle version and $49.95 for the 10 vehicle version.

Here's a link to their site: Fleet Maintenance Pro, Maintenance Pro, and Auto Maintenance Pro - pricing and ordering
I've been using their software for over a dozen years. It's easy to setup and use. The nice part is all the information is at your finger tips.

I have no association with this company other than the fact that I purchased and regularly use their software.

I use the app for my iPhone/iPad called RVCompanion. It works well for me.

Excel spreadsheets.

Staple receipts to 8 x 11" paper and write a description on the top for easy filing.

Separate folders for Chassis maintenance, Chassis repairs, Coach Maintenance, Generator.

I have built an Excel worksheet that has each maintenance item with the schedule. I have a column for each year and a mark when it is due and the month number when it was done. I have other workbooks in the spreadsheet that state the exact date, and who did the work.

If you have a laptop with you while on the road, you can purchase an expensive small "stick" scanner from Office Depot for about $50.00. You can then scan those receipts on NCR paper that fade with time
