Allison Transmission dip stick level

Checked my level at the selector as Spartan says it is most accurate. Said I was 3 quarts low, added. When I got home I checked dip stick and it showed 2 fingers above top hash mark of hot! I checked dip stick in the AM when it was cold, I know it says hot and idle but I always have a level I remember checking it cold. This is way above. I think the selector is wrong and now have too much fluid. How does everyone check their transmission level? This is on a 3000 model.

Just use the selector. Too many variables trying to remember the manual procedure.

Use the selector. This is an Allison part and the dip stick is one that the coach manufacturer adds and the length depends on installation and their best guess.

I use the selector, I try to check it about every 1000 miles of driving. My wife on the other hand never checks it, so I guess it evens out.
