Oil Change

I have a Freelander 19CB that is a little shorter than the 21QB

Where do you go for Oil & Lube changes? Jiffy Lube, Firestone, Big O, Walmart, etc. all have about 10 foot height limit in their bays.
Thanks

I take my Coachman Freelander 28QB to my locally owned tire dealer. They are able to work on cars to trucks and have become well respected for their RV service.

Our local Havoline xpress lube facility has bays that are tall enough for RVs. They do a good job. It looks like you have one in Aurora. Perhaps the doors are tall enough at yours as well.

Changing oil in a diesel is not rocket science. Just need a bigger drain pan and filter wrench.

I agree, I have changed mine in my DP before, my 8.9 ISL took 28 quarts of oil compared with 7 quarts on my 8.1 vortec. That's 6 gallons (plus the huge oil filter) vs just over 1 gallon (with a 1 quart filter) which makes it a little impractical to change when you are full-timing, especially when you are trying to do a stealth oil change in a campground.

Petro:Lube can change oil on any size vehicle on the road. Open 24-7 and nation wide. They also repair and sell tires and specialize in HVAC service. Never been in one, but millions use them. All their repairs carries a 100% warranty, so you can get it fixed for free on down the road at their next service center. All this info came from their website, so buyer beware.

Assuming you have a Ford or Chevy based MH, Walmart will usually change your oil and filter, you can choose to put in Mobil 1. Or just about any local garage can change it easily. You do not have to jack it up, there is enough room to crawl underneath to change filter and drain the oil into a pan.

Chances are that you have had more than a few people parked next to you that have changed their oil or done other "forbidden" maintenance items and you have never been the wiser. Just Sayin. . . . . . . .

To be Honest here Steve, The only thing I have seen is someone washing their Coach in a park where there is "no washing of RV's" and it is not long they are shut down,........I have never seen anyone changing their oil in a park/campground/resort/walmart parking lot/side of the road......I would think the owner would be rather upset(I would be) if he saw this going on....Most places when reading the rules states no mechanical work of any kind(emergency's only)........I am going to have to start looking around......

Is there anything wrong by going to RV dealer, or commercial truck repair shop?

To do the large diesel engine oil change on the ground would require heck of a oil drain pan, and a lot of patience to properly dispose it.
