Berkshire Routine/Preventative Maintenance
I really want to make sure I have a firm grasp on the cost of ownership beyond just the monthly payment and someplace to store this behemoth.
How often does the oil need to be changed in the engine and generator?
When it comes to the engine and generator what other routine/preventative maintenance is there besides oil changes and what price range should I expect these items to fall into?
When talking about the rest of the coach (frame, suspension, slides, systems, etc) what I am looking at for this type of maintenance in terms of intervals, cost, etc.?
Besides the oil changes is any of the other maintenance user friendly or does it need to be done at the shop? I am a mechanically inclined person, but not a mechanic, with a solid assortment of tools, to give you an frame of reference for that question.
I'm getting closer to purchasing the Berkshire everyday. I was approved for the loan, but I think we are still a little off on the terms I offered them from what they told me on the phone. I'm going back in next weekend to look over the deal the conjured up. I will most definitely say thanks but no thanks, and walk away for now. We will come to an agreement at some point as I'm pretty sure I want to purchase, but I'm going to bust their "you know what's" for a little while first, and make sure I'm squeezing every last penny out of the deal. I know, I know, it's mean, but it is what it is.
I can't say it enough, these forums are invaluable. Thanks again.
