After several long distance drives back from Texas to New Jersey and up to Maine, it was time to change the oil in our Onan 7000 Generator. During the hot summer trip season, cooling off the rear of the coach pretty much requires running the genny for the house AC pretty much all the time while on the road.

Since the process is relatively easy, I decided to tackle it myself. With lots of help from various Youtube how-to videos (here, here, & here), the job took about 30-35 minutes. The first time may be a bit messy but it is a turn key affair draining the oil, replacing filters and then replacing the oil.

The next maintenance set of items is replacing the fuel filter and spark plugs, which I’ll likely do myself, when the time is ready according to the Onan schedule.
