Radiator Pressure Check (Not easy in the Berk with location of cap and metal bracket)
Throttle Pedal Pivot Pin Lubrication
Torqued all suspension fasteners
Hight Check on Air Suspension
Tie-Rod Lub and Inspection
Change Hub Oil on front wheels
Torque Wheels
Brake Inspection
Changed Fuel Filter and Fuel /Water Separator
Generator Oil and filter Change
4 Wheel Weight & PSI check (105 Front / 95 Rear).

I'm sure I missed a few items we covered also. All work is very easy with the right tools and when the RV is on the lift.

Best tips were to get your MH weighed, know and run your proper tire pressure, keep fluids to proper specifications (allison 3000 has the on board computer to keep levels in check), keep an eye on front hub oil and pull your 3 drains on your air tanks every two months immediately after driving.
So I can set up the retirement budget, what does the every 2 year service cost?

Bob looks like you should budget about 1K. The answer is in post #12 if you open up the attachment.

It was about $750 including generator service and weighing each corner.

Forgot to mention I had them weld the mudflap bracket on passenger side that made so much noise in high wind. I always thought it was my front step going out. Hard to see in the picture. Click image for larger version
