Just changed oil today. Question for the gurus…spec is 7 qts. I put that in and it barely touches the bottom dot. Do I leave it as is or and another 1/2 qt?

When I had a Class A gasser with a V10 it was 7 quarts with filter change. I'd recheck it you don't want to overfill it. Did you pre-fill the filter before putting it on? Even prefilled it should still only be 7 so I'd start it up let it run a bit then shut it off let it cool and recheck. See what it reads then.

I stick with the Motorcraft filter, and Mobile 1 full synthetic 5w20. My 2010 V10 takes 6 quarts, and that brings it right up to the full dot. I'm one of those that likes to keep the bolt in instead of a valve on the drain pan. Not that big of a deal to change it, and I just don't like the idea of a valve being under the drain pan. From what I've heard it kind of drains slow through that valve as well, but to each their own.

I understand that later V10s required 7 quarts, but if OP isn't getting up to the bottom dot on the dipstick, I wonder if he has an auxiliary oil cooler installed? I think some came from the factory that way.

On my 2016 Vacationer 33C I have always put in about 7 1/3 to 7 1/2 qts of Mobil l 5w30 and it gets it very close to the full mark on the dipstick. Oh, and it is with the Ford oil filter.

Fomoto is really nice. Plus I connect a hose and put the oil back into an empty 5 quart jug, which I take to be recycled. Less mess. The jugs have a view port on the side to see the oil fill up. When the bottle is full, shut off the fomoto valve and switch to an empty jug, Open valve and let it drain while you grease.....don't forget to grease thing.
