First Time Service

What should I expect to pay for first time service on my Freightliner 340 horse service? I am expecting oil change and whatever I may need.

I am going in on Friday to River States Freightliner and they are charging me 390.00 for oil, filters and grease. This is my 1st service also.

There's a lot more than engine oil change involved.Fuel filters,oil filled axles change, fan gear box oil change,differential fluid change and many checks and adjustments.
You profile says a 2019 ... first service is supposed to be 6 months after build date.
Here's the worksheets for the various maintenance intervals. https://www.fcccrv.com/parts-and-ser...s-maintenance/

Figure on $1K +/- for the charges for the complete service.

Just paid 1100 + at Gaffney including generator service 4 Conner weight and extra water separator filter It was for a 1 year service. 1 year service alone was around 800. Covid nixed the 6 month service.

I paid about $350 at Freightliner in Tucson. It was for lube, oil and filter, and fuel filter. It was their PM service. I was quite surprised at the cost. Less than half what I paid RV service centers.

Depends on what you are comfortable not having checked on the Freightliner recommended service sheet. Also depends on the center. Gaffney charges 800-900 for the larger services. Freightliner oasis service centers have what they call A level and B level service. A level gets most of the extended service items and last I had it done cost about 600. B level is just oil and filter changes. You can get a list of items from any Freightliner oasis center. Gaffney has their lists at their web site.

Yep it is confusing. Ask anyone here if you should get item x done, and you will get multiple recommendations.

If you are as anal as I am about maintenance, I recommend you attend Camp Freightliner ( a class held at Gafney and Newmar rallies) to get a sense of what you (as opposed to the good folks here) want to spend on maintenance.
