2009 Magna oil reservoir ?

Anybody know the capacity of the oil reservoir? So far I haven't seen it in the literature/manuals I have. Trying to figure out if I need to carry any more than that. With the old Dutch Star I always carried a couple extra gallons.

Yes, that's the one. I suppose I could measure it and figure it out though.

Mine has number on a glass tube , they go up to 9 meaning 9 quarts of oil in tank so when you pump you can do so by the qt.

Hope that helps .

OK, we get the rig back from Cummins tomorrow, they think. Cummins has had it longer than we did. So hopefully I can look it over more. I just don't remember any markings on the tank though.

Ours holds 2 gallons, but yours looks bigger. Hardly ever use any of that oil, though, the Cat doesn't use any oil between changes.

2 gallons on ours also.

I carry 4 qts but have never used them between oil changes in the last 70,000 miles. Mine is a little Cummins.

Any idea how a KONI FSD

can get almost broken in half? They had called earlier today and told me that it was done but the drivers side rear shock was bent! I looked at it and it the shaft is bent in half. Looks like the only way it could happen is if the shock was overextended then the rig was let down or it fell in a hole that let the axle drop down.
So, now, in addition to the $32,000 ($23,300 to us) engine repair I have to buy two new shocks and get them installed, fix damage to the interior woodwork and figure out what Cummins did to the bedroom double slide door. The door won't go back all the way into it's pocket and lock, but I know it was all the way in and locked when we left it since we had been on the road home.

The double doors going off track appears to be a common issue--we've seen it in several coaches we have looked at. Should not be a big deal to put it back right.
You sure have had your share of issues with this coach! All the best to you!

"Problem" is that there's something stuck behind the doors that's keeping them from going back all the way so I'll have to put the slides out and see if I can remove what ever it is. Seems to be compressible like a piece of plastic wadded up, the door is out about 1" from where it should be. We still had the stick down plastic on the carpets that Premier put down while showing the rig so it might be some of that.
