Full Timers-Tow Vehicle-Do it Yourself Tow Vehicle Mtc - where do you do it?

Full Timers - where do you do your do it yourself tow vehicle maintenance?

I do the following maintenance myself at home, I don't full time yet:
Oil
Transmission fluid (I added a drain plug to make it easier.)
Rear differential
Transfer case
Spark plug and wires

Where do you do that when you are full timing. RV parks frown on fluid changes.

So, if you change fluids etc, where do you do it?

Thanks

We belong to the Escapees RV Club - highly recommended by the way. Most of their home parks have a separate 'garage' area to do maintenance.

I went to the site. I believe it said it had 19 parks across the USA. Just to be able to do it yourself maintenance would be worth joining.

Yikes! If folks starting using WalMarts for their maintenance work they'll surely close the lots down to RVers. :(
