Chassis Lube

I had my oil changed and chassis lubed at a Super Walmart while I was on a long trip but after I got home I started thinking about the chassis lube. I never really gave it much thought because all the newer cars and pickups I have owned have sealed systems without any Zerks. Anyway I broke out the owners manual and low and behold GM recommends a full chassis lube every 3000 miles under sever service or every oil change with normal service. I looked at the walmart service ticket and they state greased 12 fittings. I have been over and under this thing several times and I cant find them all. The usual upper and lower balls are the only easy ones. Has anyone else done this themselves and how did you find all the zerks. Oh I have a 2014 Chevy E3500 and I have searched the web but only found older pickup truck diagrams.

I finally got a chance to lift the RV and get under to inspect for grease fitting. There are 11 zerks on the front end and I have had chassis lube performed but found that only 6 had new grease on them. 5 of them were in awkward locations and I suspect that the tech either could not find them or they were just too difficult to get to. As they say If you want something done right do it yourself.
