Due to virus issues, we'll only put about 1600 miles on the coach ( Winnebago Vista with V10) this season. I changed the oil (full synthetic) and filter last Nov. and am wondering if I need to change it this fall with so few miles on it?

What does the chassis manufacturer recommend? Could not changing your oil based on time affect your warranty coverage?

I wouldn’t change it for another year at least.

With Full Synthetic (What brand by the way Most of the "Synthetics" are not really synthetic. but very highely refined dino oil) you likely will be OK but oil can go bad due to age as well as wear, tear and impurities so sending a drop or to to a lab might be a good idea. I do not have links for labs.


Home is where I park it.
