I have freightliner do a complete PM on my coach every year......oil, filters, ride height, belts, ect....I believe it is about a 40-50 point check list. The most I've ever paid is $1,100 and that was with a LOT of things being done including a generator service.
I then take the coach to the dealer to simply inspect the roof seals, windows, bay doors, aqua hot maintenance and that total is just over $350.....Don't do it....
Don't know why you are including appliances unless there is a problem.

Wow. I don't know if he will heed advice. But, I sure will. I wrote it all down. I've been to gullible and took my RV to high priced RV mechanics. I could of saved a bunch of money last yr. If I had known about this forum and listened to the advice here. The voice of experience. Thanks
I agree with using Speedco. They are relatively in expensive and they do a very good job. An annual on my Safari with the CAT 3126 fits under their Medium Duty PM. Even with an up-charge for a CAT secondary filter (they normally use Fleetguard and I accept that for the primary). Then I went to the truck tire shop that sold me tires and had a front-end alignment an, d then let Blue Beacon give my coach a bath and Rain-X spray for $50.
Next week I go to a local RV Repair shop to have a few things done - fix the furnace which won't ignite (the coach was parked for 18 months while I recovered from a medical issue) at the same time I'll probably have a water heater by-pass installed.
I had my chassis serviced by Rush Trucks in Yuma the last M-3. Cost $1200.00, all fluids. Sounds high what you got quoted. $300.00 for M-1 Lube, oil change w/filters (oil and Fuel). Also had Freightliner in Gaffney do the M-3 before at about the same price, a little less I think. When you add all the appliances, sounds like it could be close. I try to do the other stuff myself.
My local RV dealer gets $150 to do a top to bottom check out. This is a check out and not a repair. Like another poster stated if your AC, furnace, stove etc. works why check it. Should like someone is taking you down the road.
