Hidden Zerks?

While greasing my 2005 Freightliner IFS chassis I aways feel like I am missing a hidden zerk or 2. My Ford had one on the steering shaft that was almost impossible to see or get to and I am wondering if the Freightliner has one as well.

As I remember our 2000 DSDP on FL chassis had one on the steering column as I remember. Had to get at it from below and move the rubber billows out of the way

If those hidden zerks aren't in an area prone to grease getting "washed out", don't overdo the lube. Grease doesn't evaporate. A lot of the slip splines on steering shafts are coated and seldom (if ever) need lube.

Here is a diagram showing locations of grease fittings that might help.

Great stuff, Bob.

How do I determine if my 2001 Freightliner chassis is a Cross Country?

I don't mean to hijack the thread.

Not sure what you mean. Cross Country is a coach brand, not a Chassis model.

What brand and model is your coach? You can look it up on the Freightliner web site under "Built On Freightliner". Click the "Previous Years" button for your model and find the full chassis specs.

Built On Freightliner


You can also download the Freightliner RV Chassis Maintenance Manual from the Freightliner site - see

In some circles XC is an abbreviation for cross country. Not sure if that was Freightliner's intent.

Well, just about every Freightliner motorhome chassis with a rear engine is an XC. There are a zillion different XC configurations, though. Even the frame rail type can differ from one XC or another.
