Where to add the coolant

I have a 2011 Monaco Knight, purchased earlier this earlier. Today when I left Tennessee going to FL, I noticed a faint smell of engine coolant. When I stopped for the day I attempted to chk the level. I found the reservoir I think but couldn't determine the level. To add coolant I had to make a funnel from a water house. It was almost impossible to get to the opening.

Now I'm wondering if I even put the coolant in the correct place.. I had to get a ladder to open a small door on the rear of the coach then I rigged up my "funnel" system.

Any help or personal experience appreciated.

Repost here Monaco Owner's Forum - iRV2 Forums Monaco owners forum. Im sure mine is different from your but look for a large plastic coolant recovery tank ( kind of see thru ). Most systems you don't add coolant directly to the radiator. Someone with your Knight will respond....
