Thank you in advance for your time.
Don’t know where the dip stick is on your coach, but you need to locate it. Have a clean rag ready.
With the coach level and the engine either cold or sitting for about 20-30 minutes if hot, pull out the dip stick and hold it level. Look at the oil on the stick to see if it is between the low/high marks. Wipe the stick with the rag and repeat.
If oil is below the lower mark, add one quart and wait about 5 minutes for it to drain to the pan. Note how much higher the level is now, after one quart, and use that as a rule of thumb as to how much more you may need to add. If one quart puts the level between the marks, stop. If not, add a little more, wait, and remeasure.
