    Just had our RV serviced this week and wondered how often everyone else services theirs.

    Ours had done 20k miles when we bought it and we don't know when it was last serviced it is about 9 years old.

    We have done over 3k miles since we bought it.

    Hi Suzy
    We have ours done once per year, which is about 4-5K miles I guess
    Might need to find a new guy to service ours though in future? :eek::eek:

    New M/H like our Adria, built on a Renault Master base, give a service interval of approx 2 yearly.....not sure I feel ok about waiting so long, or is it just habit with older vehicles that one feels it should be done yearly?:Confused:

    Your right, I remember that you always took vehicles back at around 500 miles, after running in, for that first service, they would tighten everything and give it the once over, these days you drive it out new and they say that the first service is 12,000+ Like you say it seems a long time, but I'm sure they know what they are doing. Engines seem to go on forever these days.
