You are probably right, but I can save about $80. doing it myself in about 20 minutes. If I can, I'll work for $240. an hour any time. I would ask the park manager, and if they say no, I'd ask the locals for advise on a location. All they can do is say no.
I don't mind paying $30. for 20 minutes of labor, but have a problem with $80. or $90.

I'm with you and... do your own(and spend the rest on diesel fuel!) [/QUOTE]
I have pulled to the back of Auto Zones and Advanced and changed my oil before. I told the manager or store clerk what I was doing and they have never told me no. Just buy your oil and filter from them and they don't care, just make sure you don't leave them a mess to clean up. Even changed oil in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart once after 10:00 pm, how much light you need to unscrew a plug and filter, drained into loaner oil pan from Auto Zone, then took pan and all back next morning, $100.00 plus bucks saved.

A piece of cardboard is what I use. Plenty of nooks to fold it up and store it, and free to replace.


Thanks to Kevin & Judy and Forbes for the tips. We recently moved to Florida so I don't know about here yet, but the Autozone in Kentucky I used didn't mind using their parking lot, for some maintenance if you were a customer, but I was a long time customer and knew most of the guys working there. Hopefully most of the stores are this cooperative.

I have a small Forester, Chevy 6.0 gas engine. I bet we could get a good long thread going on oil change intervals, but I hope not.
I like a lot of others considered TT's and 5th wheels, but I couldn't justify paying as much for the diesel tow vehicle as I paid for the class C. I like your rig though.
