THOR #2601
Axis/Vegas Oil Cap

I know I saw this somewhere here on the forum, but nothing turned up in search.

Have a 2015 Vegas 24.1. Where is the oil cap? I know it's on the passenger side somewhere behind the battery. Moved those two air ducts around and shined a very bright flashlight in there and darned if I can see the oil filler cap. Anyone have a suggestion on exactly where to look?

Its to the right of the battery behind some cables.
You can see it from the other side here (look on the right of the image for a faint red arrow):

It is pretty elusive:

I have never actually seen the oil filler cap on the filler tube, but have changed the oil 3 times so far.
Had to find it by feel. Same with finding the fill hole when inserting the hose.

OK, I found it under a gaggle of wires to the right of the battery. That's it with the yellow lettering and picture of an oil can on top.

Not too handy, huh? I just topped off the batteries today. Now that wasn't too fun either! Topping off the engine coolant took a little ingeniuty, but nit it done as well.

Makes me miss by old 1954 Fold in-line 6!
