Transmission fluid

I am new to rv'ing. Have a 2007 bounder 38p on a workhouse frame. Where is the fill tube located for adding transmission fluid. Sounds like a stupid question, but in can't seem to locate it. Thanks for your reply.

I assume you have the GM 8.1 engine and Allison 1000 transmission. As you face the engine it is a bit to the left and next to the oil fill tube. The oil fill has a yellow handle and the transmission tube has a red pull handle. They are about three inches apart.

You fill it at the dipstick tube.

Get a 6" or so length of tubing that fits into the dipstick tube, connect funnel, pour. Or use a pump.

I just did another drain and fill, filter change. Mine took right at about 9 quarts.

Transynd is recommended for better heat protection and longer change intervals. I use Amsoil Torqedrive and have since it was new. I'm pretty sure your vintage came filled with Transynd. The pro's here can confirm this.

The main thing is that you change it per Allison recommended intervals. I haven't priced one of them but my hunch is they're a bunch of $$.
