Service PM Level 1

Taking the coach in to the CAT dealer tomorrow for service. Is there anything other than those items listed in PM Level 1 I should look at having done while it's in. This will be the second service. Not confident in the first provider ( at 15,000 miles) to have covered all items required by PM Level 1.

Ohio CAT in Sharonville, Ohio

2009 Safari so I assume a 2008 build C7.

Current mileage 25,800

Any words of advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Have you had your valve lashings done? How about a closed loop on the slobber tube?

I rerouted (added tubing) the slobber tube to keep the engine clean.

What should I have checked or done to the valve lashings?

Valve lash is recommended by CAT between 33-44K miles. Calendar time is not as important on this one as mileage is. Mine's 5 years old, 23K miles. I'm waiting until the mileage interval to have mine done.
