Dale; That was the best and clearest explanation of the three systems I have read. Thanks. It has been needed. Now comment on all the various fluid types each of them use. Harold

Dale, that was great. I have copied that info and placed it in my APEX folder as a word document for future reference. And as C&H asked, how about those fluids?

The problem with the last two request, is that the fluids have changed over the rears, as I noted previously in this post. WRV also did not make all of their changes with the year model changes. From my experience and what I have seen on the forum over the years, it has been basically, started with ATF, went to engine oil, then the Rycon.

I was not able to locate the Chevron Rykon product in Norfolk area, so went with a "cross" as recommended by a lubricant wholesaler. Seems to work OK. Still unable to locate any sort of fluid level indicator, Guaranty RV said to "fill it up, leaving some room for expansion." With cold fluid level about half inch from fill cap, I blew fluid when moving. I lowered about half inch and still had some blowout. Today (after cleaning tow vehicle third time) I took out about half a gallon of the 2 gals plus I added in Norfolk. At Hinkley pre-rally, I'll see if any other owners can point out my hydralic fluid dipstick. Thanks all. Bob2 2009 34'

Do you still have the yellow (caution) ABS light? Check my post on the same subject. There is an ABS diagnostic switch on the Limited (hopefully they kept it on the Apex).

My problem turned out to be a wheel sensor not pressed all the way in against the ABS sensing ring.

Sticker on tank calls for "Rykon Premium VG 46", which I am unable to find so far. Anyone know a compatable substitute? How 'bout correct fluid level in tank...where it should be? Location of dipstick or guage?

New owner (Feb) thanks you. Bob </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Bob2

I was able to purchase Chevron Rykon Premium VG 46 from our local Chevron distributor. They poured up the oil amount I requested into a new typical 5 gallon oil can from a 55 gallon drum at the distributorship. My suggestion is to go to your local Chevron distributor.
