Oil change experience

Well, I had made an appointment for an oil change at Delta Truck Center. I got there at the correct time, heard about the two recalls* and waiting two hours for them to get to work on it. Lo and behold, they tell me they don't have the oil filter or the parts for one recall. More time wasted and they can't find the filter anywhere on the West coast.

So, I ask them if I can get the filter will I have to wait another two weeks to get the work done. They will fit me in when I call with the filter. 3.5 hour round trip drive.

I did mention that they should be able to tell me straight away if they have the filters.

Moral of the story; bring your own filters.

* def issue and valve stems on the tires.
There is a serious part shortage as they have over 270 trucks and RVs waiting for parts in their carpark.

I just had my oil changed this past Friday at the Speedco at the local Love’s truck stop in Etna, OH. I stopped by a few weeks ago and asked if they serviced RVs. They said yes, but that I should come in around 6:30-7am to avoid wait times, and to bring my own filter to be safe.

I ordered the filter on Amazon, no appointment, just showed up at 6:30am. Had me pull right into the bay and shut the door. Stayed in the rig. Took about 40 minutes. Gave me choice of dyno or synthetic oil.

I didn’t have them replace the fuel filter since it was my first oil change at 7,000 miles/one year. They will also service generators, though I already did mine myself and passed on their offer.

Again, since my rig was essentially new, I didn’t have to have other things done. $164 for just the oil and filter change. Very friendly service.

I'm getting some filters from ebay in a couple of days. They will fit me in when I call. I'm thinking of getting a set of all the critical filters just to carry with me as several others here have.

I'm not really surprised about this though I should have anticipated this.

Just be careful when you order oil and fuel filters off Amazon and look to see who the manufacturer is.....there are a lot of inferior counterfeits on Amazon.


I always have the next filter/oil change setting in my shop ready to go. The shortage must be in their supply chain as I did a quick search and they are available everywhere.

All diesel oil is scarce right now. We are completely out of 10W30 and 15W40. Only in bulk. Oh and Ford guys....the FL2051S oil filter is gonna be hard to get very soon.

Did they quote you on the generator service? The oil change seems super reasonable and probably worth it over doing it yourself and having to haul the used oil to a recycler, plus the mess of it all. Did they offer a chassis lube? I can perform all these myself, but unless I take it to a parking lot someplace, I don't have a level concrete working area to perform the tasks. I imagine Walmart would frown upon me doing it there and my storage lot will not allow it.

I don't have any oil recycling in either place I live. This in itself makes me not want to do this.

Do you have an Autozone near you? Most take used motor oil. If you install a Fumoto valve in the engine and generator, it makes it easy and clean to drain in gallon jugs to take in. We have a smudge pot for out back and camping and I burn most all mine up in that for heat.

What engine is in your class C that has an oil filter that is hard to locate?

I have a Ford V10, and so far, I've been able to get it at my local Discount Auto parts store.

It is a Freightliner S2 chassis with the 6.7 Cummins in it. The oil filter is really easy to get to, you just come straight up from the bottom.

Gotcha. I figured this was in reference to a diesel.

Automotive dealers will take it.

Even bulk is getting spotty in certain places across the country...

I went to get some oil today and got five one gallon jugs…….it too me 3 places to get the five. I couldn’t believe how empty the shelves were, even the DEF shelves were empty in every store I hit.

Just a heads up. Not all oil filters are the same. You get what you pay for in quality. As owner of multiple semis and tractors, stay with Baldwin , Fleetgard. or Truck manufacturer. Especially if any warranty work needed in future. Change your filter every time you change oil. its the dirty oil that causes the problem, not the breakdown of the oil.

I'm not a impulse buyer but I'm seriously thinking about buying my next years filters, oil and Def today and just have it in stock.

I'm back at Delta Truck services this morning with my filter.
They are doing oil and filter, fuel filter another filter that i can't remember what its called, lube, a 37 point safety check, the rear tire stem recall.
This is my first service on the rig and since I bought it at Bish's RV. I wanted to see how many more things they messed up before I got it.

Do you usually get one five gallon bucket of oil?

I like to have things on hand and usually have the next oil change supplies ahead of time but in these times, I am thinking a little more ahead. DEF in stores here is pretty scarce and after running around yesterday, so is diesel oil. I buy my oil in gallon jugs, it costs not much extra and makes the oil change easier and I use the old jugs for the waste oil to save for smudge pop fuel or recycling.

I found exactly 1 2.5 gal jug Valvoline 15w40 at our local Tractor Supply today. I figured that I should buy it as I see it as mentioned above. I still have approx 1500 miles before I normally change it in my Cummins. So, I have a little time yet to find more.

I'm going to go shopping on the way back to find some oil. He said he used a little over five gallons. I had a drip on the power steering tank, fixed now but everything else looks super.
I'm doing this on my own next year. This shop just takes too long imo. It would be OK if I left it overnight.
They use a Chevron brand oil, Mobil brand grease, Fleet Guard brand filters and I'm getting the same.
