Oil Change and Lube Recommendation

We are currently in Glendale, UT (Bryce Zion area) and will be traveling to Provo, UT. While in Provo/Salt Lake City area I would like to have the oil changed and a lube of my 2004 Winnebago Sightseer 30b gas engine Ford V10.

I would like recommendations please. I don't know the local area and would like some local advice.

Look up Ford truck dealers in the area, many of them will do a MH. You might also check out www.rvservicereviews.com .

I know you posted this a few weeks ago, but since you have a gasser, you might check Walmart. Most have a 14' door and can accommodate RVs. A full synthetic change is $50.

I am sitting in the service waiting area of Greiner Ford in Casper, Wyoming. They have been very accommodating. So far an excellent experience.

Thanks for your comments and help.

The LAST time I bought an oil N filter change at walmart, when I got home and checked the oil it was a quart low. Never again.

I agree, I don't believe the Walmart technicians have the training or expertise that dealerships have with their product. I am not sure they have the availability to TSBs' etc. Perhaps for my 10 year old beater but a 100K motorhome, I am not so sure.

Wal-Mart........NOT in your worse nightmare! The horror stories about the auto services sections are true. I can personally affirm that they can not get all 5 lug nuts on a wheel tight. They could not change the battery in a Dodge car I owned years ago. A motorhome? Surely you joke?

Stopped in WallyWorld today for supplies and was told they not do big pushers because of the weight on the sides of their pit. Same with three Jiffy Lubes. Heading to Speedco.
