I pay $50 at a local race shop, and car repair. They also grease, air the tires and check rear end fluid. They use the oil Ford calls for, but they say it is to light a weight, for the heavy use of a MH

I think I will bring it to the dealer, MH friendly garage or do it myself. I knew this forum had all the answers.

Thanks Again,

I have a CAT diesel that holds 19 qts and filter is approx. $20. It is easier to change oil on this vehicle myself than on my 2008 Chev pickup and much easier than on my 2008 Xterra. Dealer charges over $200. Plus, I know it's done right. I too was afraid of the MH at first but after the high price I paid for the first one, my fears dimished

Picking mine up this afternoon from cummins dealer at $120/ hour and 39qts of diesel oil, fuel filters for both engine and genset. Wanna trade? I'll do myself after I decide whether I keep the extended warranty. The first question they ask is forward your service records and who did them. They look for any reason to deny a claim.

At $120/hour a days wages doesn't go far.
The bigger they are the more they cost. It's not a Honda civic.

I don't have an extended warranty and, after 5 years, haven't really needed it altho I could have used it I think there is a federal law that is called Magnuson-Moss (google it) that covers warranties and their denial of coverage based on receipts. You can always perform your own maintenance and keep your receipts for materials.

I have a '98 Winnebago gasser with 7.5 v8. I do ALL my own maint. And have done this with all my equipment all my life. The more you know about your equipment - the less chance of somebody pulling the wool over your eyes - as it would be. UPS just delivered a case of Amsoil today. $88 complete for 12 quarts at the front door. NAPA or Wix filter and I change my own oil tomorrow. Oil is the life blood of the engine. It's pay me now or Pay me later.

Mine was 501.00 for C-12 generator oil and all filters changed with Aqua Hot too. Greased and checked everything. Well worth it. 36 quarts of oil and 11 filters fuel and oil.

I had a V10 class A for 8 years. I changed the oil every 3K regardless and did it myself. It held 6 qts and was easier than changing my Dodge Dakota(also 6 qts.) because I had so much clearance under the front. With most of the auto parts stores accepting used oil for recycling, it only cost me the oil and filter. I now have a DP that holds 19 qts and I still do it myself. It is actually easier than the V10.
