Maintenance on an FR3

It seems there is no manual for all the things that have to be done ! What do we lube? Is there a filter on the generator? And does it need oil? Feel free to post your maintenance logs here

Fair question.

Look at every system individually and look for a service manual. Your generator has one, your fridge has one etc.

I'll post some service manuals for your particular rig later...

No oil filter on the generator. Just drop this little green cover on the bottom, remove oil drain bolt to change the oil. Fill up oil to bottom of threads on the dipstick is the approx volume.

Generator (Manual):
Oil change at 150 hrs
Air Filter at 150 hrs (though I usually think they're over cautious on this)
Fuel Filter at 450 hrs.

V10 Engine:
Oil change at 5,000 miles (if towing, heavy usage) I always change at ~5k.
Oil change at 7,500 miles (regular usage)
Lube chassis points at every oil change.
I'm only at 20k, so I haven't begun to worry about changing the trans fluid/differential, etc. yet.

Of course the Ford requires its maintenance, as stated above by KANSASFR3.

Please follow the following links for some manuals for various components on most 2015 FR3 models:

Of course there's the stove, microwave, furnace, propane tank, various interior emergency detectors, tires, cleaning properly, roof, windows and slide seals and so forth.
