I won't be going back anytime soon
Have a friend that went there, same experience. I talked him into trying SpeedCo again and he was a happy camper. He wrote the corporate office and complained about Denver and they gave him a refund.

Had the Eagle serviced twice at Speedco's Brunswick Georgia location.

Right off I-95. Four techs on the coach, even inspected the tires....in and out in an hour.

Serviced the Onan as well.

Thorough, courteous and they let me stay in the bay and observe everything.

I'll be back!

I've used the SpeedCo in Las Vegas twice. Cost for filters and oil was around $200. Also bought my tires there at a very reasonable price... in fact, best price around. As was previously stated, they allowed me in the bay and in fact requested that I witness the tech "torqueing" the drain plug, installing the filters, and greasing all the zerks. The "witness" item was on the check list when I paid the bill. I will go back.

I am lucky enough to have a garage to work on my DP, so I do just about all my own work. The one job that I really hate is the chassis lube. It's just a dirty nasty job.

Lately, I've been using Speedco just for the lube. At around $28 it's a deal that can't be beat. They encourage you to watch so I know that it's being done right.

Not that I have ever been to a Speedco but if I just spent over 300 bucks on an oil change and they were going to charge me to put some air in my tires it would be the last time I went to a Speedco.

Don't think so....10 gallons of oil....fuel & oil filters....windshield washer fluid check...grease chassis...rear end check and offered tire check but I have TPM on them, all for $261...30 minutes max.

Yes they did and they had me verify that the plug was properly replaced.

Sounds like bullheaded got a fair deal. I paid $180.00 for 9 gallons of rotella, oil filter,2fuel filters, and a Onan filter without labor.

Not only do they check it, they give you a sample on a white piece of cardboard with a key as to how to evaluate its condition.

Had mine changed by Speedco to syn, runs cooler and is basically good for the life of the coach (250K miles).

Wow, that is why I gave Speedco a try. see post #14

I suppose these places are just like CW, some are great some not-so great.

Wish DEnver was one of the greats!

I have a Speedco on the way to Napa, Ca. which I will try next time. That is a good price. A friend just paid around $550.00 at the RV Sales and Service Place for a Monaco.
