TitleCommon Maintenance Items
Part Detailed Description
An item is considered to be a maintenance item if its replacement is due to the failure of the stock equipment. Additionally, many times items are replaced as normal maintenance but upgraded in the process. Typically, unless there is an exponential gain in performance or appeal, no additional value is added to the vehicle. The following list is comprised of typical items that are considered common maintenance. The list is extensive but not exclusive. Due to the vast amount of parts on a vehicle that could fail, there are many additional items that could be considered a maintenance item.  Note that these items apply to Motorized RVs as well.
