First off, Welcome to the Forum, Dave!

You mention V10 engine so you must have the F53 Ford chassis.

Gas tank should be 75 gallons.

Engine oil recommendation is probably printed right on the filler cap and is likely 5W-30 but its your rig and everyone has their preferences.

Trans fluid would be Mercon-V (five).

I don't have a link handy but I believe Ford/Motorcraft web site has downloadable manuals. Maybe someone else can add a link here for you.

Enjoy your coach!

Thank you for the response Nick-B I pick it up today and we are headed for a week end at the Oregon coast. I will get to check the mileage and explore all the coach a little.

Try this sight. Hope this ends up being a direct link, but most times when I try this you will end up typing the link in your browser.

Hey Dave, Congrats on the new motorhome.

I found the reference to the Ford chassis links. They were right under my nose here in the Ford Chassis section (DUH!)
Ford F-53 Chassis Manual & Owners Manual

When you select your chassis (F53 motorhome) keep in mind that although the coach is a 2000 the chassis could easily be a 1999 model, this is common. There should be an incomplete chassis build sticker inside the coach (probably near the driver's seat) that has that info.

Best of luck and post up some pics of your new pride & joy when you get it home!
