Hydraulic Reserve

Can you help me with the location of the hydrolic reserve reseviour on my 40' 2004 Alpine.

I also need help with the control switch for the pressure water pump. Where is the on and off switch and how does it work. What I mean is their any tricks to turn the pump off when your travaling.

Thanks

Open the engine hatch, the hydraulic reservoir is on the right side and is a large cylindrical metal can w/a breather cap. Unless you are talking HWH hydraulics for slides & jacks, in which case its in the small hatch immediately aft of the RF tire that opens w/a 751 key.
On/Off switch for house pump is on the tank level panel which is either in the overhead above passenger or cabinet forward of the fridge. No tricks, just turn it off while traveling.

Jack, there is a black cap about 1 1/2 inch round on top of the cylinder. It screws off and has a dip stick on it to check for level. You can also add fluid through the hole.

Jack, you can also check the HWH reservoir for hydraulic fluid. You'll see the hydraulic pump inside the door identified by Mike and mounted sideways. There's a motor on the left with multiple solenoids strapped to it, the actual pump in the middle, and then the reservoir on the right (looks like a black box). On top of the box is a screw cap. Unscrew the cap and you'll find a dip stick as part of the cap indicating the fluid level. I'm pretty sure you'll want to check the level when ALL slides & jacks are retracted. Otherwise, you can over fill the reservoir.
