For my 2013 Ford F-250 6.7 diesel truck I buy the oil and filter at Walmart for $80 - 85 and I have them replaced at a place that does this for a living. In Anaheim, CA it was a local garage that did tune ups and oil changes. In Sevierville, TN it was at a transmission shop that worked on diesel engines. In Deming, NM it was a Penzoil Quick Lube. I check the Google reviews and/or Yelp to help with my decision. The cost has been $25 - 35. I have done all my own oil/filter changes for 45 years and now that I'm on the road it is so easy to just pay someone to do it. No fuss, no mess.

This website is very helpful and easy to use to find a location that accepts used oil and the filter.

Just punch in the zip and click the tab to the left of what you want to recycle. It will then show a list of local places and a map also.

Motor Oil Recycling Locations
What a great website !!!

I had no idea some of those places took used oil !!!
If you were to take it to Walmart,,, I guess you take it back to the auto parts department ???

I bought the class c recently in s.w. Florida. I've only found 3 local places so far that would service the rv fluids. The cheapest quote so far is $120. with their oil. I am a young 68 years old and don't mind doing it myself. Thanks for the info.

Not wanting to start any arguments but where do you change your oil? I thought most campgrounds do not allow working on your rv.

We noticed one day that the Oil Change center down the highway from us was working on a Firetruck. So, I took my RV there and asked 'em. Sure they said. We do all the firetrucks around from the volunteer fire dept.

They took over and drove the RV halfway into the bay. And went about their business. I wanted synthetic oil so the whole process which changed the oil, filter, topped all fluids, filled the tires all the way around, washed the windshield, etc was $90 and took 15 to 20 mins top.

It's a Valvoline Master Care place attached to a gas station. Google Earth had a photo - below. So, you guys might check these out in your area or on a trip.

I'm not new to camping but I am to having an RV. I have not heard of parks that restricted changing oil, but I'm sure there are some even though I can probably change oil faster than some folks take to hook up utilities, put up the fence, setup the satellite dish, the outdoor kitchen and television and plant the flag:-)

I am guessing there are very few CGs that would allow to change your oil there !!!
