Recently the US has seen an increase in RV sales and ownership. While we all love our home on the road and take steps to keep them spotless and well maintained on the outside, we can’t forget the mechanical components. AMSOIL and BestSyntheticStore.com will help you keep your internal mechanical components as spotless as the exterior of your RV.
Everyone knows the importance of changing oil to engine performance and life. RV engines can operate under increased stress, especially if you’re towing a boat or car. Add a dose of intense summer heat and the oil has its work cut out for it.
Increased stress and heat cause some oils to chemically break down and fail to protect the engine against wear. High heat contributes to harmful deposits that rob the engine of efficiency and life.
Use premium synthetic motor oil when performing RV maintenance to ensure maximum wear protection and service life.
AMSOIL synthetic diesel oil and synthetic motor oil for gasoline engines are formulated to withstand intense stress and heat so you can rely on your RV for mile after mile of flawless performance.
Synthetic lubricants can increase fuel economy
Another great benefit of synthetic oils is their ability to maximize fuel economy. Synthetics flow more readily when cold, meaning the engine wastes less fuel at start up.
Steve Scheuring, owner of Scheuring Speed Sports, offers a real-world example. He spends his winters traversing the country so his racers can compete in the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series. In the “off-season,” he and mechanic Elliot Burns travel the Midwest to compete in the Championship Off-Road Series.
In the summer, Scheuring usually parks his Monocao Dynasty Yorkshire in his pit. He relies on AMSOIL Signature Series Max-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil to keep engine temps running cool in the summer heat.
“Running AMSOIL Synthetic Diesel Oil, we get about a half-mile better per gallon, which is a lot when you are only getting about five miles per gallon.”
It’s the same story in the transmission, where the intricate system of gears, clutch packs, solenoids and other components rely on a steady supply of clean, high-quality fluid to ensure smooth, consistent shifts.
The stress of a heavy RV combined with extreme summer heat and towing increase stress to gears and clutches. Heat breaks down the fluid, leading to gear and clutch wear. Sludge can form, which plugs narrow fluid passages and delicate solenoids.
Over time, the transmission can shift hard, jerk or hesitate if you use a low-quality fluid.
Opt for a premium synthetic transmission fluid that fights the effects of heat and provides excellent wear protection. AMSOIL synthetic transmission fluid delivers reserve protection against heat and promotes smooth, consistent shifts. It helps keep your rig running strong mile after mile.
As you might imagine, the differentials need good protection, too. All that power and torque must pass through the differential gears and bearings before they reach the wheels to push your RV down the road.
As temperatures in the differential climb, gear lubricants tend to lose viscosity, while extreme loads and pressures can break the lubricant film, causing increased metal-to-metal contact and heat. The increased friction and heat, in turn, cause the lubricant to further lose viscosity, which further increases friction and heat.
Friction and heat continue to spiral upward, creating a vicious cycle known as thermal runaway that eventually leads to greatly increased wear and irreparable equipment damage.
Here again, AMSOIL synthetic lubricants deliver. Not only does AMSOIL synthetic gear lube resist viscosity loss due to mechanical shear, it resists thinning at high temperatures to protect high-stress gears for the long haul.
If you elect to change fluids yourself, check out the AMSOIL easy-pack, which reduces mess and hassle when changing gear lube and transmission fluid.

AMSOIL Bypass Filtration Systems help eliminate microscopic oil contaminants, significantly extending the life of your engine. Bypass Filtration Systems are especially important for diesel engines. A traditional full-flow oil filter removes contaminants down to about 20 microns. An additional bypass filter will remove particles down to 2 microns. Studies have shown, particles in the 5-25 micron range inflict the most damage within an engine. The contaminants small size allows them to penetrate the clearances between wear sensitive components, causing increased friction and wear. Particles smaller than 5 microns, in general, can be suspended safely within the oil film and pose little threat to your engine.
External contamination sources such as dirt and dust that enter the engine through the air filtration system. Internal contamination sources include particles generated from engine wear. Both are abrasive, causing accelerated wear to your engine. Soot is a natural by-product of the combustion process in your diesel engine. Left unchecked accumulated soot particles can grind away at engine surfaces. High levels of soot can cause excessive engine wear as well.
Superior Filtration: Worth the Price?
It is important to consider that 60 to 80 percent of component wear is directly contributed to the presence of abrasive particles within the lubricant. AMSOIL’s Bypass Filtration can eliminate or significantly reduce the concentration of these materials. The end result is reduced wear, longer equipment life, less down time and lower cost of operation.
According to a General Motors study, the use of superior filtration has the potential for increasing engine life by as much as eight times. Another study indicates moving from a 40 micron filter to a 10 micron filter can double the life of a roller bearing and increase the life of a ball bearing by 42%. Something as simple as proper oil filtration can result in long engine life, excellent component protection and significant amounts of money saved over time.
How Bypass Filtration Works
Bypass filters only filter a small percentage of the system’s oil at any given time. Denser, more efficient filtration media provides improved small-particle removal. AMSOIL’s Ea Bypass Filters efficiently remove contaminants (98.7 percent efficiency) down to 2 microns.
Used together, full-flow and bypass filters provide comprehensive wear protection against both large and small particles, as well as both short-term and long-term wear. In addition, filter capacity is increased, and the life of the filters is extended. A bypass filtration system also increases your engine’s oil capacity increasing engine efficiency, improved oil cooling and providing extended life.
