Wow - that's quite a shopping list. A detailed response would take awhile, so I'll try some highlights.

A Speedco shop would do an engine oil & filters for Around $250-$300. An RV dealer would probably charge 50% more.

Chassis lube is $40-$60.

Generator service is typically a couple hundred $ at an Onan shop pr RV dealer.

Transmission fluid change is often expensive, especially if you replace with synthetic (Transynd). $300-$400 for that model? Just a guess.
