First PM on oil and Chassis

Well soon the Legacy will be coming out of the winter storage location.

Called the Freightliner dealer who is 2 miles from where I keep it.

#1 cost for a full oil change along with fuel filter and grease the chassis...$285.00 Not that bad and now thinking I will do it spring and Fall..

#2 batteries seem to not have enough starting power. Asked factory for wire diagram which they said they do not give out. Why my chassis batteries are not being charged while plugged in?

#3 Freightliner said that warranty will cover the batteries from the day I bought it for one year...Great news...July 18th was my buy date in 2015

For the life of me, I cannot figure out why the factory will not give out the wiring diagram. Heard the before and the logic totally escapes me. I would love to have one for trouble shooting.

I agree. It's not like it's Top Secret or anything....if it was, I know a mail server where I could just get it myself! 😝. On my old Hurricane, the Thor folks sent me everything: wiring dis grams, plumbing diagrams, framing layouts - the whole ball of wax!

Winnebago has electrical and plumbing diagrams and a lot more available for anyone to download. Seems like any manufacturer would do that. I would at least like to know the location and type of all the fuses..... They seem to be all over the place.

I would just love to hear a reason why diagrams are secret. Seems to me a manufacturer would want their rigs maintained as good as possible rather than cobbled up with crippled wiring while trying to trouble shoot something. Please tell me it's not to protect dealers service bays! That would be crazy. No one at my dealer would know if the difference between wiring diagrams and comic books.

Yep, I figured out that my dealers employment test for rv service techs was......."Does he have a pulse?".....hired!

However, I ran into the same thing when I was troubleshooting an inverter issue a while back.
FR would not release an electrical drawing....and I figured out why....there is none!

And if they don't have a pulse, they are put into the parts department.
