2012 Thor Ace - how many quarts of oil?

Is 7 the number? I don't have my manuals handy, and I think I want to get this done tonight. Got a lot one today, I waxed the entire freaking thing, looks great.

ok, the oil is draining now, should be done soon. Yet another task checked off.

As others here have said, that factory oil filter was on tight... sweet Jesus it took me 15 minutes to get that thing off.

I found a funnel at the auto parts store that looks like it's made to rest a quart container in the thing and just let it drain. It fits nice in the oil fill tube, I took a little notch out of one end so you can rest the quart container mouth on it without risk of spill, so it didn't take as long as expected. The key was to have everything ready and within reach so you didn't need to move once you started. I also noticed the trans pan has a drain, that's cool. I'm thinking of adding a much larger trans cooler with fans since I have so much room up front, anything to keep towing temps down. A project for another day.

I just put a quart right in the fill tube, it sits in there and drains fine without a funnel.

Just be sure to buy oil in quart sizes and not larger! No way to get access to the oil fill with larger and even quart sizes vary and may spill when starting to pour. Check out the thread on the Ford side for Lube locations. I haven't done it yet, but that should also be pretty easy.
