You know things are slow when the most exciting topic of the day is Sherman's oil change! I last changed the oil towards the end of September while in Texas, about 6,000 kms (3,700 miles) ago.
I change the oil myself on both the motorhome and our little car that is stored back in Canada. Why? Well first, it's slightly cheaper than paying someone else. Second, the last two times I paid someone to do it, they put the oil filter on WAY too tight. So tight that I couldn't get the oil filter to come off! The last time this happened with the motorhome, I had to cut the filter off and weld studs onto a socket to get the base off the oil filter mount. That was a four hour oil change! Anyhow, when I do it myself, I know it's done right!
