Has anyone had maintenance done at at Flying J service facility? I need an oil change and lube in my Monaco Diplomat.

I am interested in any feedback in general and if anyone had had service at the Ehrenberg, AZ center.

I can't help you with Flying J feedback, but I was talking with a fulltimer the other day and he swears by SpeedCo (speedcousa.com) for his oil changes/lubes for service and price. They specialize in truck servicing and have no problem handling motorhomes except you have to back into the service bay rather than drive in forward. It might be an option to look into.

Check the Flying J web site and pull up J Care under Hospitality and Services. They list service costs for RV's.

Flying J Service want $225.19 for oil & filter, full lube, check transmission and differential levels, and install new fuel filters.

The local Cummins authorized dealer want $490.

So off to Flying J, which has no appointments, just a first come, first serve policy. I have a Cummins ISL400.

$ 225 sounds like a great price. I do my own service, but the 3 filters (2 fuel and 1 oil) cost me around 70 bucks. Add another $70 or so for the oil so you're paying less than $ 90 for labor for oil, lube, and fuel filter changes.

Please report back on your impressions of the service after it's complete. Flying J might be a cost savings service option for folks.
