I must be blind, where's the oil fill tube?

Just got my 1st MH a 2001 georgie Boy with the ford v-10. I've looked all over for the oil fill tube & no joy. Found every other fluid fill but not the engine oil unless the fill tube by the tranny dipstick is it. But it smells like tranny fluid to me. Any help is appreciated. I feel like a moron having to ask this.

On my 2012 Ford F-53 chassis the engine oil fill is beside the transmission fluid dipstick, high up and a little to left (passenger side) of center. The engine oil dipstick is also high up to the right of center.

On the 2001 F53 it can be very high up to the left leaving very little room to even get a quart of oil there to fill it. It has a very slight angle to it making it seem like the oil would probably pour right back out at you which it might if you pour too fast.

Isn't the oil measurement stick under the oil filler cap? Eddie Elk.

Had the same problem last summer on my Workhorse.... Finally found it.

The tube had gotten bent just a bit and was hiding ABOVE the opening .. I found it by getting under the engine and looking up, spotting where it entered the block just above the oil pan, and folling it up to where it was hiding.... Kind of a pain but once I got ahold of it and moved it down all was good.

Thanks for the info. I will definitely have to get underneath for a look. It's obviously not in sight
