I used to have an 05 Newmar on a Freightliner chassis with a Cat C7 330 HP and did all my own service.
You have one or two fuel filters, one is a 30 micron fuel filter / water separator and a 2 micron fuel filter by the engine. Or you only have one fuel
filter/ water separator which should be a 2 micron filter.
The total amount of engine oil is 19 quarts,this includes the oil filter.
Use 15W40 oil,like Shell Rotella T for Diesels!
You need to change the oil once a year or about every 11000 miles and chassis lube about every 5000.
To get all the info, call Freigtliner in Gaffney,SC. with your VIN number,they can help you. I think the number is 1-800-FTL HELP
A good place to get the maintenance service is the Freightliner factory service in Gaffney,SC or find a SPEEDCO service place,they do trucks and
motorhomes and do a good job.

Go to the Freightliner web page and choose motorhome XC chassis. Then search "know your chassis". You can download a diagram of all the lube points as well as a lot of info on maintanance.

When you visit the Freightliner web page, get the Help Line phone #, always have your serial number on hand when you call, FREE INFO, and take the time to join Access Freightliner, FREE to all Freightliner owners, for parts info and wiring diagrams .
