Maintenance Log

I've looked in the forum and have not seen an app discussed that might be able to do what I want.
I'm looking for a app for the iPad that helps keep track of maintenance for my motorhome. Ideally I would like to have reminders of upcoming items that need service as well as a log of past records. I would enter the service item, time and or mileage interval and the app would keep track. I found a site maintainmyrv.com but it is web based and I'm looking for an app that I can use offline as well as sync to my iCloud account. Also, maintainmyrv is subscription based and I would like something that I can buy once.
Perhaps another member is using something geared for truckers that can adapt to RV's.
Thanks in advance

I remember someone on IRV2 having one, but don't remember who. Hopefully they will see your post!

An app? A paper and pen has kept track of countless vehicles for many years. Good luck finding your app.

I suppose I could use a stone tablet and chisel as well. I was looking for something that was easy to use and keep track of. I have a hand written log, but I had hand surgery a month ago and my hand writing skills suck. I did find exactly what I was looking for. It's a app that categorizes all maintenance with reminders and service records. I will try it out and see if it fits my needs for the future.

To add to HappyCampers reply; Claybox posted an excel spreadsheet for MH maintenance. You'll need to use the search feature to find that particular post by Claybox. I suppose you can tie it to your PC calendar to setup reminders.

There was a lady at the Escapees Rally who wrote a Windows based program for this. Her website has a simple name, so simple I don't recall what it was. I'm sure it can be found...

Ray, that username sounds very familiar, but I checked the member list and it's not there. Could it have been something else similar?

We use Outlook for reminders and an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of just about everything else including miles driven, campgrounds stayed at, cost, remarks, etc. Works for us. Hubby does not have or want a smart phone so no apps for him.

Exactly! Notebook with continuous accounts of what has been done along with the date and mileage. Simple!

Simple, if you have not had hand surgery that got screwed up as my previous post explained. Problem is, I can't write for the next three months. So I was looking for a digital answer to keep track of fuel and maintenance stuff. I pretty much knew about the concept of written log books when I asked my question, but thanks for offering a solution. I did find an app that will do for the next few months.

You're right, I got the spelling wrong, it should be: clayobx.
UPDATE: I located that spreadsheet, sorry to say it is Spartan chassis specific and may not work for the OP. clayobx-spartan-maintenance-spreadsheet.pdf

CLAYOBX vice claybox, perhaps?

Take care,
