THOR #10873
2017 E450 Dip Stick

New to Class A Coach, been RV'ing for 40+ campers, travel trailers.

Handle came off Oil dip stick. How long is it from the end to the bottom of the handle. or from the full mark to the bottom of the handle.
It will be easier to repair it rather than have a brisk discussion with OEM's

I am sure glad that I have been able to make appropriate repairs and items that should have been caught during PDI for MFG to Dealer. That is for another discussion.

PDI in RV terminology means Purchaser Does Investigation. Dealers don't do them when they come in like they should. It's up to the buyer prior to purchase...secondly, it's good you can do the repairs's required if you own an RV and plan to enjoy it. I would call Ford on the dipstick specs. They have excellent CS and no hour long wait time.

I would also call Ford. More than likely will send you a new one, after all it is under warranty.
