I don't put a lot of miles on it and it will go quite a bit longer than 6 months before signaling time for an oil change.
With the investment I have in the motorhome I suppose it is best to err on the side of following the Ford 6 month recommendation even if I might only have a few hundred miles on it. I was just curious what others were doing in the case of low miles.
I look at it this way. The cost of changing oil and filter on a Georgetown Gas V10 is cheap.
I reply on my engine to haul me around a lot as I'm closing in on my 40,000 mark. Many time I change my own as its so easy.
I have had 8 oil changes in mine with 36,000 miles.
So that's comes out to 4,500 miles average between changes.
And being a 2012 and it comes out to every 6 months also.
