Smile MaxxForce 10 Oil Change

My Wife and I recently bought a new 2012 Monaco Knight with the MaxxForce 10 engine. My question,there is no mention in the manual about the first oil change after a break-in period. Am I right in assuming that I am supposed to go right into the regular oil change schedule as listed in the manual ?. This is our first diesel motor home and diesel engines have changed a lot since I drove trucks for a living in the 70's & 80's so I have a lot to learn about them.I am thankful that there is a place like this to learn some of them . Thanks, Alan

Yes just go to the regular oil change schedule.
Be prepared for the factory torqued on oil filter(s)
I reccomend good oil filter wrenches or just pay someone to do the first oil change.

Alan, Here is the answer that you were looking for.

"No - No special break-in oil drain, although doing a short drain won't hurt."
