Recommend maintenance for 2012 Georgetown 378

We purchase an extended warranty when we bought our used coach last June...to maintain the warranty we need to follow the recommended scheduled maintenance from the manufacturer...we are having troubles finding out what that is exactly ...it had 8800 miles on it when we purchased and have put about a 1,000 on it this year...when calling around to inquire on a yearly maintenance service we are getting all kinds of differences...can someone please advise

Here is a few documents from Ford.
But I change oil and filter every 4,000 -5,000 miles.
I grease the front when I change oil and filter.
Air filter is a visual inspection until you know its time.
I flushed brakes system at 30,000 miles
I flushed transmission at 30,000 miles
I flushed cooling system at 30,000 miles.

Now this is what I have done because I travel many miles with my 2012.
I also have my frontend aligned every 20,000 miles.
I also just replaced my tires because the date stamp on them showed over 5 years.

No if you are just a few short trips a year locally your maintenance schedule may be different.

Oil changes and filters are cheap so do it now for starters.
Tire pressure should always be checked cold and prior to your travels.

Hope these docs help.

Iggy - what replacement tires did you buy. Our 2011 only has 15,000 miles on it but due to the years, we will be looking to replace in next few months. Thanks for posting the information.

I bought Toyo's 245/78/22.5
You can spend more for the Michelin name but I decided to save the $1,000 -$1,500 and use that money for fuel and camping.
The tires are the same amount of belt plys and load rating.
Look here for the Georgetown thread hat was started talking about replacing tires.

Great! Hopefully everyone will introduce themselves cause I lost track of all the forum handles.

Read your warranty paperwork carefully. In addition to the mechanical engine/drive train parts, you need to maintain the roof, fridge, furnace etc. Make sure you have receipts and documents as most extended warranty claims can be denied if work is not done exactly as specified and within the time period specified. Some contracts require the work to be done at a certified repair shop.
