I have never owned a large truck...I have heard and read some on the Freightliner frames and the maintenance...I have not seen anything about the E450...Mine is a 2017. I now have 8,000 miles on her, changed oil twice...first change used Amzoil and this last change using Mobile one extended. I have crawled under the rig and saw one zerk fitting the rest of the frame was all Greek to me... what needs to be done to maintain the frame, if anything....I spoke with Camping World where I bought the RV and they told me to just drive it and don't worry....Now that scares me.

Oil/filter and the zerks is all I do for routine maintenance. There are 4 zerks on the steering gear. One of them is a little tough to see at first. I spoke with a Ford rep and that was all he recomended as well.
