Get some references and find a young local mechanic who does some jobs on the side and have him crawl under there and do it.

Having a lube is more than oil Its an opportunity to check trany and coolant fluids, windshield fluid, undercarriage lubrication. tire air pressure etc. I quit getting under vehicles several years ago. I will not go to a genral repair chain like wally world or firstone. Jeffy lube does not have the clearance in the bays. I am fortunate to have a locally owned lube shop that planned for high clearance rv's. When on an extended trip needing a oil change I will go to the internet searching for locally owned repair shops that can do the work or provide a knowledgeable reference.
I'm 80; do my own.
my advice: do it yourself; the exersize will do you good.
same here I'm 77 and the exersize does do me good and I save money doing it my self. When I grease it I know its done right. By the way I use a filter that is a quart larger then stock. It holds an extra qt. of oil which helps with cooling and extra lube. Thus my 460 holds 7 quarts..
I have mine done at a truck lube place near my home. Their name is B-Line Truck Lube. This location is in Brookshire, TX, right on I-10, but they have 2 or 3 other locations. The truckers that I have talked to while waiting say that there are other companies like them around the country. They are like a Jiffy Lube on steroids. Big doors, big bays, and big pits under the trucks/RVs. Takes about 20-30 minutes once they get you in. Last charge was $62 for my '02 F 53 gasser - includes Oil, full lube, and even an air filter this time. They check all fluids, look for any leaks underneath, and even vacuum the drivers seat floor! Check around for truck lube places.

Thanks a bunch for all the replys. First off I only live 22 miles from Wichita Falls, no where that I have found can handle a MH, next I am only 11 miles from a big truck stop that works on Semi's, but they do not do Motor Homes I have asked a few times. The White truck center in the Falls do not have a pit and can not put a 36' MH on the rack.
The worst part of doing it my self is disposing of the old oil. Plus I don't have very good use of my left arm any more and can not hold the grease gun in place and pump it at the same time. At 79 years old I can still do almost every thing. Maybe I can get the DW to crawl under there and help me hold the grease gun, she's only 75.ha-ha Thanks for all the suggestions.
