Oil Change

I have been trying to get on this site for a few weeks now. I am having trouble and need two questions answered.

The husband passed away a few months back. I am very far away from an rv service place. I need an oil change in the Dutch Star. I was told that Wal-Mart can do it. Have you tried them and what weight oil should I be asking for to replace the old oil? I know that the filter will also be change as well.

Now, about this new site. I told you I have been trying for weeks now to get on. I never had problems before using this site. I have nothing but problems now. I always have to ask for a new password sent to my e-mail address to use as a temp. password. When I follow the instruction about how to change it back to something I can REMEMBER !!!!!! I am told I am not logged in. But I am on now and still can't navigate to change it. What am I doing wrong ???

Thanks in advance because I probably won't get on again but I can still read any replies.

I found a oil change service that comes to my house for a modest $25.00 trip charge. It sure beats fighting traffic and having someone else drive the coach. I don't know if you have one in your area but look for a mobile truck service company.
Here is the link to ours here in Albuquerque.

If you find one it sure is worth the trip charge to avoid the hassle.

Hi Happymi,
Please accept my condolences on the passing of your husband. I've asked the moderators to contact you with regard to your troubles using iRV2.

I'm not sure where you are located. If it was me, I call the Wal-Mart first and determine their ability to change the oil and filter in your coach. Before going to Wal-Mart, consider using the phone book yellow pages to see if there is a truck service facility near you. I'd trust a truck service facility a bunch more than a Wal-Mart facility. The yellow page listing might be under:
Truck Dealers
Truck Repair & Service

As a minimum, you might want the following components serviced:
Engine oil
Engine oil filter
Fuel Filter
Fuel Fuel Water Separator
Grease chassis
