Oil Change suggestions

Have a 17 Verona that needs an oil change. Would like to do the same on the generator. Have been using Freightliner for the rv but the ones I contacted will not do the generator. Figured Iíd try Cummins on my way through TN. Nashville told me an appointment would be 3-4 weeks out (Iím only passing through for a couple of weeks) and Chattanooga said Iíd need to leave it a few days as they do any trucks before motorhomes and couldnít return it the same day as I bring it in.
Going through Birmingham on to Meridian, MS, Laurel, MS and then Biloxi. Any suggestions where to get both done in one day? Used to try Speedco for the rv but the last few had signs saying they donít do motorhomes. Not sure if they ever did generators.

Not sure if there are any in the area, but WW Williams changes the oil on our Classic including the generator.

I would call and see if they are a Custom Coach Location. The one listed in Columbus Ohio as a "Custom Coach" isn't but the one near Cincinnati (West Chester) is. They do both engine and generator. The West Chester Location has 30 amp hook ups and is open 5am to 12 mn. We got an appointment there within a week of calling. Show up, plug in, 7am appt next am. We had a terrible experience with Fyda Freightliner in Zanesville, OH. Waited 7.5 hours only to be told they wouldn't get to us that day and we really didn't need the service Freightliner recommended.

I have been using Fyda Freightliner in Zanesville, OH. Very happy with there service. When I need parts they deliver to the house. I live about 20 miles from them.

Good to hear you are happy with their service. My experience was one of the worst customer experiences I have had.

I contacted them via their web form about the service needed and spoke with their representative on the phone subsequently. I drove from Columbus and was there at 5:10 am, third in line. The guy who checked me in was condescending and acted like I had no clue what I was talking about. I was told to park in the back lot and they would "get to me." 8 hours later I get a call from a service tech wanting to know why I was there. He also informed me that he didn't know what I was told that morning but they wouldn't get to me that day. Wasted 12 hours.

There are plenty of other choices, I wouldn't go there again.
