After I did some checking around, I decided that it would much easier for just going to my driveway. A lot cheaper too and the first change payed for the drain cart, the oil and the filters, including the fuel and air.
After giving the procedure some thought, it wasn't all that bad of a job for changing 33qts of oil. The old, I dropped off, at autozone, so no disposal problems, either.

I change my own oil as a retired service oil, just another day in the park. I use Amsiol 5w40 on my truck and Cat.

I still get my oil changed at Speedco, they still have the same staff, and I always get a good job, you can watch them do the service. It probably depends on the branch. Thanks

I do my own, oil changes are easy. Almost any truck shop will do an oil change on a coach. If I ever decide to have someone else do my oil, I'll be looking for a Mobile Mechanic service and still purchase oil and filters myself.

In my driveway.

If you want to pay.... it depends on where you are.

I've hear of Wallmarts that had big bays and did coaches all day long... not around here.

There's many, many mom and pop truck repair shops. Ask in the autoparts stores. It's someone cousin in there.....

You didnít say where you are located. I have used Massy Diesel in Phoenix with good satisfaction. You can also go on rvservicereviews.com and find someone in your area.

If you are in or around your profile location, --and don't want to change it yourself-- I always like to recommend iRV2 forum sponsors when I can. Brazel's in Centralia used to be a great place to have service done. In years past, we've had Brazels do several of our routine maintenance schedules and they were always reasonable in price. I don't have any idea what they'd charge today but but they were competitive when we last used them about ten years ago ...probably will be higher priced than Speedco, however.

Not sure of their price for an oil change either but we were very pleased at getting an air brake problem diagnosed at L.A.S. in Longview quite a few years ago. They told us at the time that they'd do routine maintenance on our DP should we want to bring it to them. We never got the chance but they were really nice guys working there ...family business, father and sons, I believe.

I found a great mom and pop shop. They change the oil and filter and give it a full chassis lube for $75...I supply the oil and filter.
