Maintaining Your RV Transmission
7/13/2012 – Good Sam
The minimum requirement for maintaining your RVs transmission is to monitor your fluid level and condition. Your owner's manual will tell you how to verify proper fluid level and will suggest frequency of fluid changes. When you check the fluid level, look at the color. Transmission fluid should be red and odorless.
Professional repair facilities like AAMCO (a Good Sam partner) offers sophisticated services that goes beyond the basics of a do-it-yourself fluid change to help you keep your RV’s transmission cool and smooth – and possibly increase the life of your recreational vehicle.
A do-it-yourself fluid change usually only replaces approximately 1 gallon or about one-third of the transmission’s total fluid. More thorough than a simple fluid change, the AAMCO Power Purge Transmission Flush & Filter Change replaces 100% of the old fluid, including the internal parts of the transmission, the converter, coolant lines, and transmission cooler located in the radiator and in front of the vehicle.
This service includes:
Complete External Diagnostic Service for your transmission
100% extraction of tired, old fluid
Removal of dirt, grit and abrasives
Replacement of the filter or cleaning of the screen
Replacement of the pan gasket
Check for leaks
Fill with fresh, clean fluid
