Tradewinds oil filler tube

I can see early on that National built a quality MH , but I wonder who was asleep when they forgot to put an access door for pouring in oil in a 1998 Tradewindes. I know a service center using a bulk oil supply would just stick the nozzle in an start pumping. What have you guys invented or found to pour a gallon jug if changing your own oil. And that little pull up or slide in the filler is even a funnier joke

Yes - I have the same idea about the engineering. I tried to find the valve cover fill under the bed and engine cover box. Not there either. I was able to get about 3 1/2 qts in by tipping the jug sideways. when I got done with the 4th gallon I poured the remaining oil into a empty qt container and finished the fill-up. I have an '01 300 ISB Cummins. Still a pnta but I know the oil has been changed as well as the filters.
Hope this helped.
