If you had your oil changed before you left home, you should be good until you get back home

Blue Beacon for a wash and speedco for a oil change and lube. Most of the time they are next door to each other.

Hmm, never thought changing oil or washing the rig in a campground, would be a big deal.

Use a 2.5 gallon hydraulic oil container for waste oil, and can dump at local service center. But could see how carying that full time would seem like a waste of storage space. Have to think about that.

...

I have a dually pickup and found a place behind the rear wheels up inside the fender to carry a large plastic oil pan with spout. I do have to remove a fender support everytime I need the oil pan and then also use a bungie strap to keep it secure. I change oil every 5k miles, so average twice a year. Yesterday I checked a neighbor RV'rs truck when he complained of oil spots on the ground. I discovered the oil drain plug to be loose, ready to fall out, and he had recently had his oil changed at a dealer!! It pays to do your own work.

It's what I would do if necessary. Our 3-4 month trips are in the summer and I change oil before we go and it's lasts thru the summer trip.

I don't get why CG frown on washing the coach. I've washed it at several public CG and 2 private CG and except for one time at the private CG I was never asked to stop. And at the place I was asked to stop I was actually washing the towed, which gets much dirty than the coach. Is water that expensive. I bet I don't use 10 gallons when I was the coach with a hose nozzle.

My guess is some campgrounds don't allow it because a few careless people spilled oil in the past. I'm sure they hope their guests will respect their wishes.
