His is a 2020, They didn't have that a year earlier? From what I'm reading they have the old fashion service engine. In that case it's around 7 to 7500 miles or once a year from what I see

Correct I dont have a engine oil montioring system. This unit has the old style steering wheel and dash found in the 08 f250/f350 body.

Just remember putting in the oil is a pain. I use one of these and I'm done in a few minutes

I have a simple question. Where is the best place to get an oil change for my 2021 Thor Axis 24.1 ????

This RV has been in the shop for 6 months so far since I purchased it the end of March in 2021 (brand spanking new). 4 of those months have been since Just after Thanksgiving 2021. I have been trying to get a maintenance package completed at my local Lazy Days RV in Denver. ( This is the company I purchased my RV from them a year ago). They still haven't completed the Oil changes for the generator and the Chasis (4 frigging months !!!!!!!). I don't get it. This is ridiculous and unacceptable. I have a trip planned starting in a week and last I checked were 2 RVs in front of me. I was told that same update 3 months ago!!!

I need to find an honest and reliable place to have this service done going forward.

Any suggestions???????

Call a Ford dealer. Call a local independent repair garage. Do it yourself. Last place on earth Id go to for oil change is an RV dealership! And never just leave your unit sitting in a RV dealers lot. Other than oil changes, what else are they supposed to be doing?

You could change it yourself for less than a quarter of what they would charge and It might take a half hour. Dump the old oil into the container it came out of and drop it at Walmart, they take old oil. If you use mobil1 It would cost you 52.95 + tax and a half hour of your time. Don't need to jack it up just climb under
