  • @SolarMike - Book time is book time, regardless of rusty bolts ... I mean, you might have to pay to replace the rusty bolts, but it won't add to the book hours. Commented Apr 25, 2019 at 22:06
  • @Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 that must depend on location then, as book time is based on new cars, all equipment available and no rusty bolts that need re-tapping, rewelding etc unless you lot do work for free...

Depending on the tank size and if it has a shield, 3.0-4.2 hours book non-warranty.

I can't say if the "motor home" creates additional access issues.

No accounting for rusty nuts . . .

    Motor home could be too large to fit on a standard lift. So you’d want to factor that into the estimate.
