A Workhorse authorized service center (Dealer with a TALL door) Slid under on a crawler and Never lifted the RV As I recall about 65 dollars give or take a couple not sure if full or semi-synthetic.


An RV dealer Same method. Semi-synthetic. Same price.


Home is where I park it.

Honestly, who wants to change their oil themselves while on the road. Check out Jiffy Lube. They are everywhere, have pits and tall garages.

And no BS about needing all kinds of additional stuff. After the way they abused my aged parents, they will never see a dime from me.

Oh, you mean when they stand there showing you a perfect air filter that has 13,000 miles on it and they broke the latching clips when ripping the filter cover off. [emoticon]

If you are worried, change the oil before you leave, keep it filled on the trip, and change it when you get home.

Read your owners manual and see what it says. The days of 3,000 mile oil changes went the way of the dodo bird

Sure, and the days of engine issues due to extended oil change intervals is just beginning. See it all the time. 7-12k miles on an oil change will cause issues down the road. Not worth the gamble. I would t recommend going more than 5k miles.

The less you change your oil, the more engines they sell.
