I had my motorhome serviced here 12/7/21. I arrived home, 140 miles away, after dark. Put the coach in storage and closed the door.

Yesterday I went over to change the air filter; what a disaster! Oil all over the rear engine compartment. The cap is gone! That explains the oil.
Check the dipstick to see how much oil was lost…..IT IS OVERFILLED! Invoice reads 36 qts… 4 genny. 32 in engine. I look at the spec…26qts.

I ordered a new cap $55.00, broke a small hand pump trying to get the oil down. Did find a local mechanic willing to drain a little oil for me.

At age 75, I am just not comfortable trying to do it myself. Sure would have a few years back. Had another bad experience with Rush Truck in south Texas a couple of years ago. At a loss for who to use next time.

If you are in North Texas go to First Choice Truck Lube in Decatur, Texas. They service Trucks, Rv's and Cars.
I have had my 2011 Berkshire serviced there yearly since it was new. It now has 65,000 miles.

Best advice is to check all their work before driving off.
