Hydraulic pump? Separate from one on engine block

Can someone help me with what I'm looking at here? Hydraulic pump for sure... Can't see any fluid in add/full glass. Is it for steering, room slide both? It's under drivers side first/front outside compartment? Picture attached. Also where do I fill it? It specs mil-h-5606 which I purchased at aviation supply today! Help. Thanks 1999 intrigue.

Well, picture didn't seem to attach. It's orange and upright with a site glass tube on side for add/full level.

Ok doing some research it appears that it is part of the "hydraulic slide out, power pack". Ok. But it also says on the pump "check fill line when wheels are straight forward position" ?? So maybe also has to do with the power steering system. I filled glass to fill line with approved spec fluid, (about 1 quart) actuated room slide. Went back out and glass inspection vial was again empty? Also noticed a holding/overflow tank, see in picture, that has fluid appearing to be same in color as the hydraulic fluid I am adding. I stopped adding until I find out what I'm doing . Don't want to overfill, and it may not require any if it has overflow reservoir that appears about 1/2 full. [/IMG]

This kinda weird. Based on the last photo, I would think that it has something to do with a steering stabilizer. None of the pictures you have posted look anything like HWH gear.

I suggest a email to HWH just to confirm if it is their equipment or not.

Does this coach have hydraulic jacks? Some had the added hydraulic jacks.

I have looked in a few compartments but have never seen anything like this.

Wow, that is weird. I would think this "power pack" would be on yours also ? No, my coach has air bag leveling. I'm almost certain it provides hydraulic pressure to move slide room. I'll check while my co-pilot moves room next time. It's a hefty looking power pak. Could definitely lift the coach I think.

Well, a set of jacks could have been added to the coach at some point, I have seen a couple.

The "power centering" reservoir looks like it goes to possibly a Howard Steering unit. In your first picture under the "check level" is says that "wheels must be centered with system turned on".

I think it belongs to a power assist to the steering like I said. It has nothing to do with the slide hydraulics.

Doing a little "googling" I came up with this. In one of the pictures, it shows pretty much what you have only it isn't painted orange Installation of the Howard Power Center Steering
