Cooling Fan

I have a 2001 Alpine Coach FDS. I think I understand that the system that runs the cooling fan also does the power steering. I assume a hydraulic pump. Where is it located and where do you check the fluid level.
Thanks

When you open the back engine compartment door, it is the large container on the right. There are three filters in there and uses trans fluid.

...and the power brakes too....pump is in parallel with the air compressor....on the pass side of the engine and below the aforementioned fluid storage tank [assuming the 350s are like the 400s]...

The fill cap on the top on the tank is also the way to check the level. There is a dip stick on it. If you want to change it? You can remove the large clamp around the top of tank, Lift off the top. I siphon the trans fluid out, replace the filters and reinstall top and fill. There will be a sticker on the tank that tells you what type of fluid to use. Mine is dextron. Around 3 or 4 gallons. I'm a DYI person.
