I'm glad that I spent a large part of my career around machinery and diesel engines, so I'm happy to drag out a tool set and get to work. My work list of required maintenance is quite long, so I break it down into smaller, a couple of hour projects and save the $100+ per hour labor charge that a dealership would charge.
This weekend, I intend to service the Journey's Cat diesel engine and the chassis. I picked up an oil filter and two fuel filters at my local Freightliner dealer, a quick $98.00. I picked up oil and grease at Walmart for an additional $65.00. If I had the oil, fuel filters and chassis grease done at the shop, I'd be looking at an over $250.00 tab. That's a considerable savings. Fortunately, the Cat diesel oil and filter change is an annual job, or 11,000 miles, whichever comes first. With our usage, they both seem to hit at the same time.
So my plan for tomorrow is take Marti out for a nice breakfast, then zip home and get the oil change done, shower and head out on the road around noon and go somewhere, with no idea where we'll end up. That's the joy of having an RV.
