I'm not sure if your coach has a side radiator with a hydraulic fan, but if it does, the power steering and rad fan share a common pump and reservoir. Mine is remote to the engine 10" in diameter and 18" tall.

Call Spartan for this information. They will be more than happy to help.

Just have your VIN handy.

Engine oil diesel rated 15/40 weight.
Transmission fluid , ATF Type III or IV unless the fluid has been changed to Transid ,I'll check the spelling . If the fluid has been changed in the last 3 years , this is Allison Transmissions new fluid.
My hydraulic pump system for power steering and rad fan , uses ATF Type III on my coach, if the fluid in your coach is red in color , that should be what you need there.

Correct spelling for the new fluid is " Transynd "
