Mine was operating just fine but I checked the level with a bamboo skewer and discovered the tank was a gallon and a half low. Camping World carries HWH fluid.

where is the leak. the fluid doesnt evaporate, or wear out, so there has to be a leak.

Pete, as far as ours goes, it was that way when we bought it. I haven't noticed any leaks so far and the tank is now topped up so I'll monitor it and see what happens.

If you have the same kind of tank that we have, the FULL mark is the indented depression on the tank, about 2/3 of the way up the tank.

Fill beyond that and it will puke out all over the compartment. AMHIK

To check the leveling pad for leaks, place newspaper, paper towels, etc under each pad. Activate the leveling system a few times and then check each pad for wetness.

With the 40 ft coach--the ram that actuates the bed slide is a hidden opportunity for a leak.......so are the equalizer tubes for the main and the vanity slides....
PS--make sure you only check fluid level with slides in and jacks retracted....

Have you set the jacks in order to level the coach? Simple, but important.

Dennis,


When you check the tank level, the jacks have to be up (stowed position) and the passenger side slides (dining room and vanity) have to be extended; the drivers side slides (galley and bed) have to be in. The full tank mark is on the narrow part of the "dipstick" which should be about 1/4 inch below the top of the tank.

The slide cylinders are bi-directional--why would you need to extend some and not others--curious minds want to know?

I have no idea, Old Scout. That's what the 2006 Apex manual addendum says to do.
