Hello Stok1, adding vehicle specifics will help to get you better information. I have a V10 in my 97 Class C. The location to fill is under the hood on the right side I believe.

In mine I use quart bottles and screw one of these to the top. The red one will fit almost any oil bottle, and the accordion-looking one will only fit the ones with bigger openings, like Amsoil. If you buy your oil in gallons or larger just keep a clean, quart bottle around.

First answer is "very carefully" followed by in quart bottles one at a time. I've got a Winnebago Class A and the oil fill is way high to the left side of the engine with only about 6 inches clearance to the top of the engine bay. While I buy by the gallon I go from the gallon bottle into the quart bottle to fill and do it slow and methodically to not spill any.

I had a 2007 Class A. I extended the fill tube out so I could reach it easier. I put a piece of like sized tubing in between with two rubber hub less connectors bought at home Depot.

Quart bottles shaped like this are actually pretty easy. I can gradually tilt it in with the spout on the high side, start pouring, then rotate it 180 degrees to empty it. I transferred my gallons to one of these before finding the spouts I posted above.

Having so little clearence I use a hand pump out of a 5 qt. jug. Since we drive only about 800 to 1500 miles a year and change oil yearly, I wait for warm weather so oil easier to pump

I place the funnel under the wiper arm, and pour away.
