    I have a 2006 Sundancer with a Zf 63 VI transmission which calls for Dexcon III fluid. The store suggested Dexcon VI Synthetic fluid, indicating it is compatible. Does anyone have any knowledge if i can use the Dexcon VI Synthetic without any problems.

    Walmart, Menards, O'Reilly, Meijer all carry the Dexron III fluid.

    I have the same transmission in my '07. Buy the gallon jug and one quart per transmission...should take just over a gallon to drain, clean the filter and refill.
