Default How to check/replace differential fluid. I searched but couldnt find

Looking for tips/guidance on checking differential fluid and how to change it. Where/how to I check the fluid and I have 3 diffs right (front, center, rear)? What can I use for fluid? I thought I read that you can use regular or transmission oil?

Thanks in advance
