I am so glad you asked the question. I am probably going to do my first oil change either this weekend or early next week. I have never paid to have done on my previous motor home so I wouldn't have expected 200 bucks unless I took to an RV dealer.

I like the replies - yes I will have to stay to the more expensive quart bottles unless I try the Pump method as mentioned too. Didn't think of that. That could be easier.

Will wait on the Genny as I don't have enough hours yet...but that is even easier.

I use a 8 foot step ladder,cut a piece of 5/8" garden hose about 2 feet long. push a funnel into it, tie wrap or tape it to the ladder with the hose in the oil filler pipe.then just pour the oil in.(slowly of course) no spills

It is the 106 model. They have various sub models depending on preference. I got the 106N.

I got the f 106 N, but as Aquaman said there are different options. Their website is fumotousa.com. I think Amazon may sell them as well.

Go to Harbor Freight or a tool warehouse. There is a fluid evacuator pump that removes fluid [Mighty Vac] that also reverses and pushes fluid in. Make sure to keep it clean and do not put anything else in it. We use them to fill todays trans. that do not have dip sticks and fill from the bottom of the oil pan

Auto Zone sells a funnel that holds fluid and has a long hose with a release valve.

I used quart bottle and filled it with 5 quart container. Also installed Fumoto drain valve .problem is no way to get filter off without making a mess. Filter is directly over frame rail. Tried punching hole in filter to drain oil but still poured all over frame. Fumoto valve worked great.

Hi, I bought a pump at Advanced Auto Parts that is made for pumping gear lube into a rear end. It comes with different length tubes. It screws right onto the 5 quart Motorcraft 5-20 bottle and putting the 10 qts in is drip free. I rest the full bottle on the w/s washer reservoir and pump away. Done in no time.
