There are no plug wires to change or band adjustments to be made on your truck.

Check out the service manual/maintenance schedule. I'm not sure how long the coolant is good for, that is usually recommended to flush and change every 100-150,000 miles or so. Everything will be in the maint. schedule.

it all depends on how much u wanna spend and if you are towing a big load id do all the maintenance plugs, coil boots, oil change, diffs fliuds changed trans filter eng air filter if u dont have a after market on allready changed, eletrical check to make sure u dont have any lights or shorts in the system cause of the extra lights on the rv. it doesnt hurt to have an extra belt in the truck. i mean if u go tooo some shop in ur area and tell them you want a full inspection they will tell u wats wrong with it or if somthing looks wrong.but like snursnak said lok at tha book it tall ya wat sould be or allready been done
