Your profile says you have a 2005 revolution. With only 4000 miles and only 30 hours on your generator, I would not go out of my way or incur any extra expense just to get it changed. Even though it has been a year on the genny, another month or two till you can be near or driving by a facility will be more than acceptable.

Good to know. I guess we should google and see what is acceptable miles/ hours between servicing. I have to wonder if we haven't over serviced but rather that than neglecting the coach. We are headed to Pa in July so we could just get our service people there to do the work. We know and trust them and rates are very reasonable. Maybe small town rates, I'm not sure, but the Speedco rates were a bit of a shock! I'm still going to check with the one that was mentioned earlier that is located here in Biloxi.

We are looking for 2 Freightliner center wheel caps. I posted this under Fleetwood forum but maybe someone reading here will have an idea where to get them and are they standard size or do I need to know a size.

My Cummins manual says to change the oil at 15,000 miles and the generator is 50-75 hours. Even these cycles are very conservative. If you have trusted service people in PA, by all means, have do it when you get there in July.

How in the world were the Speedco rates a shock?

I do not think you could buy the oil and filters for much less than their services.

Stress free, oil analysis, complete chassis service including front axle lube and rear differential check, tire inspection, complete genny service (oil change, fuel filter and air filter), engine oil and filter change, fuel filters changed, water filter changed, coolant test- all for less than $350 out the door?

Plus, your oil will be nice and hot for a good drain prior to the refills.

Find one on the way to or back from PA, yo will be in and out in about an hour and learn quite a bit about your coach as they like the owner to be observing their services.

Actually I think the OP has a Cummins ISB so would get the light duty service which is $199 plus a charge for the generator.

I have had several oil change, lube, and oil test visits at Speedco, $230. The right parts and oil every time. They do my gennie too, $56.

Can you explain why you feel a light duty service is good? Just wanting to learn more as I'm not mechanically inclined but I learn something new all the time here. And of course, there is always something needing repaired, maintenanced, etc with these RV's. I've learned quite a bit about this coach that way. We have only had this Revolution for 1 year and I believe maintanece wasn't a priority to previous owner. It's a beautiful coach and we've come a long way with it with more to do though.

I think the comment re Light duty isn't about the service it's about the size of your engine .. It requires less oil and costs less to service than the larger diesels. Speedco prices are different based an your engine size. They are also about the cheapest you'll find. I too would be curious what you have been paying in the past that makes you think they are expensive. I also would say wait until you can get that lower cost service you've gotten in the past your mileage/ time on gen is nothing you need it changed by time only and a couple months late are not that important.

I thought that but wasn't sure. We have a Cummins 350, 8.3 L. What I'm not sure about is it an ISC, or ISL. That will be something I'll ask when I get the service done. I'm always learning and will keep asking questions.....This is my 3rd MH and the 1st diesel. I have no mechanical background whatsoever and I don't have a handy husband around either, LOL!! So I'll keep asking and hope I don't seem to "dumb" here. Believe me, I've learned a lot in the last year, more with this coach than the others. Thanks to everyone for your continued help!!!
