Yearly Service List?

My ISC Pusher is coming up to its one year service. Besides the normal oil and filter changes I am wondering if anyone has compiled a list of things to do and inspections with the coach? I started to make a list and then thought of the forum and maybe there is a list already out there.
Thanks in advance!

There should be a maintenance list for your chassis. Some things are annual, others every 24-36-48 months and some of those are probably due too. I know Freightliner has recommended lsist and assume Spartan and Roadmaster do as well. Check your chassis owner manual.

A chassis lube every year is good. Transmission typically 48 months but varies by model. Diesels usually need attention to coolant, hydraulics, & air dryer. Gas chassis may need a brake check. Etc.

Yeah, I have an ISL and the manual goes into great detail as to what to do at specific intervals.

You'll need to make sure you don't take numbers from the "heavy duty" chart. Motor homes are light duty on those charts.

Good luck.

You should go to the websites for your chassis, engine, transmission, generator and download the maintenance schedules for each.

I created a spreadsheet for all of my scheduled maintenance requirements. In my case it's all based on months since I put very few miles on the coach.

It's a real fun project , but necessary.

Thanks. I've got my manuals, but this is what I was looking for. It will be a great start to a WIP list.
