Rear radiator fan clutch box ?

Read end to end:

Side radiator gearbox and clutch failure

My question ... rear radiator has the same problems ?

Want to perform the Coach's first oil change, around 5000 Miles, can't swear to it, maybe less maybe a little more, anyone with a Ventana LE 2018 - 4002 be so kind as throw me a few tips.

Can i reach the box top without pulling the floor in my wife's bathroom in the back ? I am allowed to shower in there ( wink ).

Is there a dipstick ?

Gear oil ?

No, you do not have this gear box as the fan clutch is directly connected to the pulley and belt. A much simpler design.

Add a Fumoto valve to your drain pan and draining oil will be substantially easier. Don't forget, the oil filter should be prefilled before installation. It takes almost two quarts.

I just bought the easy oil drain plug. It's shorter than the fumoto, 1.28" compared to 1 5/8". Haven't seen it yet , will be going home Tuesday. I will be doing my first oil change.

I called Cummins with my vin and they gave me the thread size of both oil pan plugs. That way I can order the right one.
