Changing tranny fluid
 
Getting ready to put her to bed and want to change the tranny fluid. Still a couple weeks out but thought I'd check my logic. Got a 08 197 and was planning to just make sure it's level on the trailer, pump out the tranny and replace with the same amount. Wondering how important "level" is...should I actually put a level on the floor and adjust the trailer till its perf? Thanks for the help.

just suck out what you can.... replace what you suck out. Just do not use synthetic to replace...

I check my tranny fluid after underway on a body of water. On trailer I believe you can get same orientation as on water.

X2 on above. I got a 2 quart measuring cup from West Marine that's used to measure epoxy and fiberglass resin but you can find them elsewhere. I use my fluid extractor and measure what I take out. Them replace just what I took out plus just a little more to make up for what's lost poring. I'm always within the marks when I check the fluids in the spring.

I read about that one... not a bad choice - once you put that in - you won't be able to switch to a non seal swelling product.

hmmm, not really agree with you mikeg maxlife atf will not cause any seals to "swell", therefore not allowing to revert to conventional fluid. Synthetic and conventional fluids are completely interchangeable and can be swapped back and forth as many times as you want.
