New from Spring, TX

Hi All,

Retired in 95, 20 years Air Force. Then retired from Verizon after 17 years in Maryland. Moved down to Spring, TX. Bought a used 2001.5 Fleetwood Discovery 37U diesel pusher, with the Cat 3126B motor.

This is my first post on here. I do have a stupid question . I am going to change the oil & filter...is it ok to fill the new oil through the oil dipstick hole?
It is near impossible to do it through the valve cover under the closest floor.
Thanks all...I read this forum daily and have learned so much.

It'd be perfectly fine to fill through the dipstick hole. Might be a little slow tho.
