I went out and checked the Onan dip stick - the plastic yellow end looks a bit flimsy but doesn't show any cracks. You can bet I'll look for cracks every time I check the oil. Thanks

Yep, mine is about 6' long! Fortunately it is easy to insert/remove.

Seems like a good metal replacement is in order..
Plastic has its place and lots of advantages depending on the application.
A dipstick seems like a job for Stainless steel.
