Plastic Hydraulic Reservior

I have a 1998 National Tradewinds and the Plastic tank back by the radiator has a crack in it and is loosing fluid. Would any one have a lead on where I might find a replacement? It is the small white tank that reads "Hydrualic Fluid Only" seen in this photo

I have found that when you need something from these types of businesses they think
you want to be a major stock owner also.

I would come up the something it looks easy to replace with something metal. All you need is a fill , vent and line out.

Napa makes a coolant overflow bottle that may work for your situation. It comes with a metal frame to hold the tank and clear plastic tubing.

You'll want to cover up that surge tank for the radiator. UV rays will eventually get to it and it will craze and then fail. I cut a piece of rubber material and attached it so it hangs down over the tank. When I want to check I just lift up the flap.
