X3. And for me, at 6-7mpg, a 60 mile round trip will cost an additional $25 in fuel...Rather buy myself $25 of beer on the way home to change the oil in the RV. :-)

Since I still have drive train warranty I did take to a ford truck maintenance center to get one done. Lubed the whole chassis, worked with me in getting replacement valve stems and extensions setup for the TST monitors etc etc and only charged me for oil change plus got I think 6 months of extra roadside assistance even for flat.

Did price out to about $100 with fuel etc but based on how well they went over everything on the cassis was worth it to me.

Oil Change

I always prefer to do my own at home or on the road. I want to see what the condition of the coach is that I am driving.

I personally always do my own work on all my vehicles including my boats.

How many dealers do you think actually use a torque wrench on the oil drain plug? I do!

Oil change

Yes I do my own oil change . That gives me a chance to look over the hole coach . Plus than I know It gets the right Oil , some times i think dealers put in the cheap stuff and charge you for the most expenses stuff.
