I have 3400 miles on my coach and I am getting ready for an 3000 mile trip. I am thinking about doing it myself. I have not changed my oil since high school, so it has been a LONG time. Any recommendation, hints or suggestions? What about lube points? How many? Location? I have seen a diagram for another chassis, anyone have one? I am sure there is one in the manual, but who has time for that?
An Oil change on the Sunseeker is one of the easiest vehicles I have. The filter and oil drain are very easy to get to and the vehicle is so high you don't even need a jack. Walmart sells the recommended motorcraft oil and filter so they are easy to find.

Thanks for all of the replies. I did it myself. It was even easier than I remember. There is a lot of room under there to move around. A lot more than my old 1986 Chevy S-10. It took about 30 minutes, and about $45.00 in supplies. I will do it myself from now on.
