Looking for a place or a pit where we can change our own oil on our bus in the mid Florida area.  If someone knows of a place, let me know.  Thanks.

mwf, here's some advice...I tried it and it works. Find an Oil Change outfit that has 15' doors and plenty of room to maneuver your bus.  Go to them ahead of time and ask them what they'd charge you to change your oil and filters if you supplied everything.

Mine, in my home town, charges me $35 labor for the while deal. And they give me the opportunity to go down into the pit after they're done and give everything a good loooong look.

If you happen to live in a small town...getting the local newspaper photographer out there for a bit of free advertising doesn't hurt either. My bus didn't make the front page but it was on the third...and the owner of the oil change was happier than a pig in $hit!

The only problem is that, who we are talking about is now on tour of Rally's for a couple of months.

Even as far north as Virginia.. He may not be back in Florida for a while.

Sorry Ed J. Grin

We will be home for about 2 weeks and ya'll are welcome to come by and change your oil & filter (or anything alse you need to do).  You could even join us at the SE cruisers rally to be held in Arcadia 3/7-3/9.  You can call me at 863-444-3400 for directions or questions.  Jack
