What all needs to be serviced??

We have put 10,000 miles on our new to us, 04 Beaver Marquies. When we first got it I had generator serviced, Aqua system serviced, oil and filter and fuel filter. We are getting ready for a long summer travel trip. Other than oil and filter again what should I have checked? Can service place tell condition of transmission fluid by color (on service reciept last time they had put red color)? I assume have it greased-how often for fuel filter change? Thanks in advance for any help-oh yea we now have 64,000 miles

All of that information should be in your manuels if you have them. Or you can go to the chassis manufacturer and they can give you that information.

The Allison transmission needs fluid and filter at 36 months so if it has not been serviced it should be. The 36 month interval is for TES295 fluid (Transynd). The new high capicity filters are good for 48 months. Coolant DCA level should be checked with test strip and a coolant filter change based on the result of the DCA test. Hydraulic filter change and air dryer cartridge change. If the differential oil has not been changed it is time. Also a front wheel bearing service. You mentioned the oil & filter and fuel filters and chassis lube.

You have a great coach which will give you reliable service but maintenance is the key.

Once you get the info from the manuals, I have found the easiest way to remember the maintenance is do it the same month every year.
1. Battery water if batteries are flooded type that water can be added.

Change every year (engine and generator):
1. oil + filter
2. fuel filter(s) and fuel/water separator
3. grease chassis

Change every other year:
1. hydraulic fluid
2. air dryer canister filter

Check every year and change according to manufacturer recommendation:
1. coolant - engine and generator (green check SCA every year and replace every 3 years). (red Extended Life no SCAs are needed. Check level annually. Add extender at 36 months (1 quart). Change every 6 years.)
2. Transmission fluid (Transynd is assumed)
3. Transmission filters (Transynd is assumed)
