Where is coolant check for Genset ?

On a 1997 Fleetwood Discovery Generator, That mounted at the front of the RV, where is the coolant check for the genset? I have looked and looked for the most obvious places and haven't seen it. Do I have to climb under the RV to check it. I would think I shouldn't have to, but if thats the case I will. The oil dipstick is right there in your face but no coolant. Unless that 2nd jug at the rear has something to do with it, but that wouldn't make sense. Please advise me oh great Discovery owners.

Every on-board generator I've seen is air-cooled.

I believe your Onan Propane generator is air cooled. See page 6-7 in this manual.

I don't think the generators are color-matched to the upholstery and exterior.
