I'm not sure on your coach,but it is something manufacturers are going to. Last year I purchased a 2010 Ford truck. When I asked where the transmission dipstick was, the answer was there isn't one. The transmission is sealed and the fluid doesn't have to be checked or changed (unless there are signs of leaks) for 100,000 miles.

Getting to be more common in recent years. My '08 Chrysler 300 doesn't have a dipstick either. With the new synthetic fluids being used, they do run cooler and last longer but I still wish they gave us a way to check!

Maybe the manufacturers figure there are too many dipsticks behind the
wheel to trust putting one on the transmission.
