2019 New Air, What do I really need to do at 1 year?

I have a 2019 New Aire, It was manufactured in Late August 2018.I did a factory customer pick up in November 2018. I brought it home and it went to inside storage until May 2019.

I have done 3 trips and the coach has approx 1,500 miles on it. Everything is running perfectly. It is stored inside.

What maintenance do I need to do at the 1-year point?

Hi toneil7163,
1. change oil + oil filter
2. change fuel filters (2)
3. grease chassis
Generator needs,
1. oil change + oil filter change

I subsequent years there are additional things to be changed and replaced. For now that is all you need to do.

I would look in the black suitcase that Newmar provided with your coach. If you have a Freightliner chassis there should be a Freightliner owners manual which contains a section with yearly maintenance list. I follow the list provided by Freightliner based on months.

The anniversary is based on when the chassis left the assembly line...

We have a Freightliner...

First year we...

Changed oil and oil filters both engine and genset.
Changed fuel filters...engine and oasis.
Inspected tires, batteries, radiator, charge air cooler, belts.
Drain and fill wet hub axles.
Greased zerk fittings throughout spension and drive shaft.
Checked all fluid levels.
Checked coolant for sca additives...not needed if you have final charge...I think they test pH.
Clean all the air filters for house A/C.
Check and replace if necessary windshield wipers.
Check torque on wheel lugs.
Check filter minder on engine air filter.
Water batteries.
Sanitize fresh water tank, and replace whole house filter.
Check coils on rooftop air and clean if needed.
Replace genset air filter if scheduled.
IIRC genset fuel filter is good for 500 hrs???
Inspect roof sealants
Lube batwing if you don't have the razar antenna

The website has downloadable mx schedules...sometimes they go much deeper.

My DS had a 6 mo., 1 yr., 2 yr., etc. maintenance due as per the FL service manual. The manual spells out exactly what is due. Checking water in batt's (assuming you have flooded) is definitely needed if you have not already been doing so. Your coach and genny has earned a PM by time ONLY not by use. Once chassis is out of warranty I'd be tempted to skip a interval if I only put 1500 miles on coach.

You MUST service your side radiator Gearbox and Drive shaft. This has been discussed by Freightliner as the number one most likely thing to go bad without maintenance. It was due at six months for a flush and refill. Mine looked like a metallic milk shake on the first change at 6 months. The second change I just completed and the oil was relatively clean in appearance. Continued operation with all the break in gear shavings on a high speed gearbox will have damaging effects on the seals greatly reducing there lifespan.
Secondly, the rear brakes have very important lubrication requirements for the auto slack adjuster and s cam shaft. Avoiding maint in these areas can have a very bad repercussions.
The manual from Freightliner has a complete list of required first 6 months then 1 yr maint. You are already behind.
