Common Heavy-Duty RV Services
RV Engine Repair
Heavy-duty engines are a lot bigger than light-duty engines and, as such, have a significantly higher power output. This higher power output often correlates to more severe damage if the engine isn’t properly maintained and taken care of. Fortunately, we here at Patriot Diesel Service offer both engine repair and maintenance services for RVs of all kinds.
RV Engine and Transmission Fluid Changes
Your engine and transmission both need oil and fluid to adequately ease friction and eliminate heat. Your engine needs its oil changed every 20 thousand miles, whereas your transmission needs its fluid changed once every 30 to 60 thousand miles. The difference between the two service intervals is due to your engine having an internal combustion chamber, meaning its fluid gets significantly hotter. Outside of lubrication, your engine also needs its coolant changed once every 30 to 60 thousand miles.
Why Won’t My RV Start?
Your RV has a complex ignition system that allows your engine to start. If any of the components within the system fail or malfunction, your truck likely won’t start. First things first, ignition issues are usually caused by a dead battery. Batteries die as a result of their age or background issues like low temperature and faulty alternators. Fortunately, we here at Patriot Diesel Service have the tools and equipment to solve these problems. We’ll install a block heater to fight off the frigid temperatures, repair or replace your alternator, and get you a fresh battery.
