Any hints on greaseing location 2? Mine is less than an inch away from the other strut. Right angle grease gun?

3 ford dealers listed in the Commercial vehicle web site have stopped doing RV oil changes. I had a shop that serviced Trucks.

The hurricane we just bought is a 2019 on a 2018 chassis and 1206 miles on the odometer. I'm thinking I should maybe go ahead and do a change to make sure I have good, fresh oil before heading on a long trip.

Almost 700 miles are driving from Wakarusa to dealership. Almost 100 were from me test driving. And I know they took it to at least one RV show. I seriously doubt the other miles were from the dealership making sure all the rigs were properly exercised.

Obviously it couldnít hurt to do it but I donít think Iíd be in any hurry unless I was planning a cross country trip soon. If you do it yourself be sure to add a fumoto valve to make it way easier in the future.

2 week trip planned in July going to Colorado Springs and back through Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, and Missouri. Definitely will do it before then.

Got that Fumoto valve from Amazon the other day.

I changed my drain valve over to a Fumoto valve, a lot easier to change the oil. I also changed most of my zerk fittings (grease fittings) over to 45 degree angle ones, makes it easy to grease all the fittings from under the coach.

This adapter for my grease gun works great. At least for one grease job. And for the price if it's disposable I can live with that!

Hunker down southeast, it's hurricane season. Be Safe!
