Dave, this is your own photo off Facebook: that little blackened (was red) plug in the center of your wheel is what you need to pop out. You should see oil in there level with the bottom of the plastic housing window which should be clear:

And that is a CR brand hub cap so the oil level line should be to the bottom of the sight glass. If you clean off the paint it will have a raised line showing you the proper oil level. If you pull off the cap for any reason check the hub level about 4 times until you are sure the oil has leveled off in to the hub oil level gallery. It has to pass from the hub cap through the outer bearing and into the center part of the hub so it takes a while to level off.

LOL - Scott, no fair using my own pictures against me   :)

Thanks for all the advice folks.  I'm going to make a trip down to the Chattanooga garage when we leave here and get some service.

Thanks,
Dave

BTW, if you use a CR hub cap plug (green) and not a Stemco brand (red) you will likely stop any sweating from the fill plug area.
