I think much of the problem is that everything on a coach has a specified mainenance/inspection schedule. I know I don't have one for mine, and I suspect most don't have one for theirs. I do check things out, but it is not a real in-depth inspection every time, and I may be missing some things. Rear axel seals and bearings should last more that 84k, but the coach may have been towed and the axels pulled at one time. Sloppy handling and dirt or other junk could have been introduced.

Of course, there is the chassis and then the coach, two different animals. I'll bet if I search the documents on this site I might find chassis maintenance schedules for my 83FC. If not it would probably be on some School bus site.
