Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh,
Now we're getting somewhere. Yep, sometimes a bit of a sacrifice, (getting into the mud, been there done that oh, about a few dozen times) is what it takes.
Nobody likes doing these types of repairs, corrections, maintenance etc. but, in the justice of "seeing for yourself" and, knowing the job can and will be done right, without being gouged.

Dirty shirts, pants, cut hands, a few choice words, and the job is done. You now know more than you did previously. And, if by some strange chance, you see oil on the ground again, in the future sometime, in the same possible area, you might have ammo to dive right into the potential spot. Hope the fix is simple.
Scott

So, all in all not really an issue to get yourself so upset over. Really a minor issue that probably worked itself loose due to the recent install. Get her tightened up or replaced and your good to go! Just goes to show that a level head and a good inspection of what is at hand can go a long way.

Thanks for the assistance guys. I'm off to find a wrench to fit this thing. Hopefully a can just tighten it a bit and be good to go.

I tightened it up as much as I could with a 32 mm wrench. It's still leaking. Going to a mechanic tomorrow.

It's fixed! I had to remove the oil filter to get a wrench on the return line. But I'm feeling much better now that it's not leaking.

Great news. With a little effort, many task on these motorhomes are doable for the DIY'er. Sometimes things are a little bit out of our comfort zone do to the massive size of these rigs, but you can save a ton by rolling up your sleeves and work the problem. It can be daunting at times when you first learn of a problem but Fire Up gave you some good advise. It's a good lesson to us all. When at first malfunctions seem really bad but with a little trouble shooting most things are not as hard to fix as first thought. Good job
