My power steering went out (86 Winnebago Chieftain) and I needed to add fluid. The reservoir is about center, with the top 2" below the bottom of the dash. The tank itself is held in place with a bracket which, if you remove it, allows it to swing forward a bit. How is one supposed to fill it? There's not enough space to fit the bottle of fluid and a funnel and tube doesn't have enough slope to empty the tube. I managed to get fluid in, but only with a fairly large spill to clean up afterwards. Surely there's a method to do this I haven't thought of.
And then I figured I should check the oil. The level is fine, but the dipstick, about four feet long, won't go back in more than three quarters of the way. I tried orienting it in different directions, but it hangs up.
I'm not a complete mechanical incompetent and it seems like I shouldn't have to pay a mechanic to change the oil or add power steering fluid but maybe I do?
