Oil Filler Cap Location Thor Axis

Where is the oil filler cap on the Thor Axis 24.1 (F-350, 6.8 liter)? Thor help line didn't know. Several posts on iRV2 Forum say that it's behind the chassis battery, and I've removed the two air intake tubes that run over the battery, but can see nothing that looks like a filler cap anywhere in that area; there's only about a 2 inch space behind the battery anyway. Ford chassis owner's manual also shows the cap in the general area of the battery, but I'm at a loss to find it. This seems to be a basic piece of info for an owner. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks very much for the info and picture. I'll try to explore the area behind the battery some more, including maybe removing (if possible) an insulating panel in this area. I wish I had access to the Axis engine compartment that your photo shows. Thor didn't cut Axis owners much slack regarding access by the way the hood and grill are built.

No they didn't. I took the easy way out and had someone change the oil for us (Camping World).

Thor Axis Oil Filler Cap Found

At last. After removing the air intake tubes, I found the filler cap well behind a group of cables to the right of the battery - in the attached photo, it's more or less in line with the A/C refrigerant refill port (red cap) and at about that level.
