Maiden Voyage Issue

We just picked up our Tiffin 36LA and are driving it 850 miles home. I noticed a small amount of power steering fluid on the ground. Itís a small drip from the part where the steering wheel connects under the drivers side wheel well. The fluid is at Max level. Am I ok to drive it another 550 miles?

I think it will be ok just keep an eye on the level. I would check it whenever you stopped for a break.

Thanks

I did find the source of the power steering leak. There is a hose that is screwed into what I think is the pump. There is a bead of power steering fluid on the threads of the metal connector. Almost looks like if I just tightened it a little it would be OK.
