Adding antifreeze

to my ACE (f53 chassis), and itís IMPOSSIBLE to get a funnel or the bottle close to the top of the reservoir. Itís a little low on coolant...
Any tips on how to get the antifreeze into the reservoir? Thanks!

Use a plastic squeeze bottle with a hose in the lid. Google it.

If you have diesel save a Blue DEF nozzle, flush out really good several times and keep it around for such things. They work great on most jugs.If you don't have diesel go down to the local auto parts store and ask if you can grab one. Lots of folks dump it in their tanks and leave the jug and box behind.http://www.thorforums.com/forums/att...1&d=1553312458

I would look at it the same way as changing oil. Get a funnel add a hose extension to it and go from there.

The way the reservoir is situated, I donít think thereís any way to use a funnel or anything else that would use gravity in order to add fluid. Itís just a poor design, but not a big deal.
