I just need to know what type of Transmission Fluid I need to put in my Motor Home. It's built on a Ford F-350 Chassis. I don't havenany of the manuals and I'm stuck out on the road. I think It's Type F but I'm not sure. Don't want to put the wrong fluid in it.

Re: F-350 chassis - Motor Home
Ford reccommends Type F,but in my opinion,Type F or Mercon varnishes quickly.I've been rebuilding Ford's auto's for 19 years,and have found Dexron 2 or 3 works just dandy.Mixing the two fluids won't harm anything.The biggest thing is DO NOT use any kind of trans stop leak which contains brake fluid.

you make a valid point that it is a motor home but unfortunately it is built by wind sport motor home on a standard manufactured chassis and that is where you will find if it has an inertia switch
you will have to look at the compliance plate on the fire wall in the engine bay to see who the chassis manufacturer is ( ford, chev, merc benz, renault ,dodge etc ) then go to that service center and ask them
if you want a manual for the motor home part then you will have to contact the manufacturer of the home part
if you want a manual for the vehicle part then find the make of the vehicle the home was built on and get a workshop manual for that vehicle
most motor homes are built on existing chassis and are not built from scratch
The only part of the motor home that ford provided was the cab and chassis. the 10 didgit in the vin number denotes year of vehicle. the vin on the dr door should match the vin on the dash. letter b=1981 c=1982 d =83 ect the rest of the motor home is manufactured and installed on the open chassis. I hope this helps
The parking brake is activated by the shift lever. There is no parking paw in the transmission on these John Deere Chassis motor homes. The parking brake is the type that works a brake on the drive shaft. I ran into the same problem and just put a line lock on the brake line.
