Happy New Year from Las Vegas

Recently purchased our first Class A, a gently used 1999 Seabreeze 1330. In the process of "spiffing" it up with new tires, shocks, resealing the roof, etc. Probably will have a lot of questions for the members of the National group.

Who do you use in Las Vegas for "chassis work", i.e., oil changes, alignment, etc., etc?

I do my own oil and lube but for alignment I use Laser Alignment on Donovan. The Ford auto dealers are a joke when it comes to motorhomes... they either won't work on them or they charge 5 times what it's supposed to cost.
This is the ONLY place that said yes they would replace wheel bearings on my motorhome Ford F53. They are a Ford Truck dealer
QUALITY FORD TRUCK PARTS & EQUIPMENT

I had the oil changed there, air filter, fuel filter, the serpentine belt replaced, radiator flushed, and some other minor issues.

They put 5W20 in it but the "book" recommends 5W30. I found a Ford service bulletin from 2002(?) that recommended a change to 20 wt; but, I'm somewhat concerned over the lighter oil...especially in the summer in the desert. What are your thoughts?

John

I think you have a very valid concern, JayStar. The same viscosity can't be good for all of us, whether we live in Alaska, Arizona or Florida. Common sense is telling us that the thinner oil will allow more engine wear. I wonder if the thinner oil enables the manufacturer to get a little bit better mileage so they can meet the government requirements. (just my humble opinion) Maybe someone else can offer some concrete information.

From what I've read, you're right. Ford is/was trying to improve their "CAFE" standards. I think I'll switch back to 5w30 before summer hits here in the desert.
