That sounds pretty high to me. We paid $39.95 at the Ford Commercial Truck dealership.

Yes, that sounds way too high. I've never paid more than $50 for an oil change on an F53. Was it just oil and filter change or did they do a chassis lube too?

What was done during this service? The dealer I work at just charges $35 I think. It is the same price as a car/truck. If they did a tire rotation, maybe that would explain the higher cost. If it was just an oil change and filter with normal 5-20 oil and not some super full syn oil, they really raked you over.

X2, Next oil change, have the old oil run through a fine filter and retrieve the gold dust.

I have my V10 serviced at a local Castrol Jiffy Lube. They charge $39.95 for full service and they do a lot of gas motor homes. They also service my generator. RV dealers, CW, truck dealerships, etc, stick it to you on a service job. Check around at your local quick lube places and I think you will fine they know how to properly service these gas motorhomes.

After you picked yourself up off the ground, what was your response to the rediculous charge ?

We paid on average 60 for our gas coach oil changes, oil filter and lube.

Now we have a diesel and pay $ 150 for much more oil, filter and two fuel filters and lube.

Looks like you got ripped sorry.

Don't wear that same shirt back in there, they saw you coming. For just an oil change and a lube it should be no more that what it cost for you car.

Camping World charged me $169 for an oil change on my 8.3L Cummins engine in our MH. That included 20 qts. of oil. Someone ripped you off, I'd file a complaint with the BBB if they don't make it right with you.
