I assume it is a Ford V10 and if so it is 6 quarts of 5W20 including the filter. FYI Ford uses synthetic if you want to match oil for oil.

Some V10's take six but most take seven. Best to find out which one it is for you.

Ford class A chassis use the newer V10 engine need 6.5-7 qts. Engine is 3 valves per cyl and have small oil coolers above the oil filter. Class C motor home have the orig slightly smaller V-10 and use 6 qts. I owned both so it's known to me. BTW it's like 290 HP vs 360 HP between em.

I just changed the oil in my 2015 FR3 30DS and it took 7 qts to fill in the dip stick markings with a Bosh filter..

Changing oil. Did you use a funnel with a flexible tube and reservoir?

Technorick, I used a one qt. oil bottle, a steady hand and poured slowly eh. My oil came in a 5qt jug so I would just fill my 1qt bottle and put the oil in one qt at a time.

I was about to change the oil on my 2014 30DS and my big concern was putting the oil in because of how high the fill port is. Using one quart bottles is what I was figuring on doing.

Yes with a flexible long spout funnel, that's what I use, slow and tedious but a money saver.
