Power Steering & Fan Fluid

I was checking my fluids and found my power steering fluid was a little low. I canít seem to find what type/ brand I should use to top it off. Any help would be appreciated. 1999 Country Coach Allure 40 ft, 330 Cummins, Allison Tranny.

My 2000 intrigue also calls for dextron three.

You may want to flush refill and change the filters. I bought a 5 gallon pail at Nappa. It said it was a Dextron 3 equivalent. Harbor freight had a siphon pump for about six dollars that worked quite well-being

Dexron III here.

I do not flush the fluid. Instead, I pump out the reservoir, change the filter, and refill. Eventually the old
fluid will be exchanged.

Do not drop the Post Wing Nut into the reservoir!!

A magnet will not work to retrieve it from that slippery slope.

Keeping that list of Murphy's law has to be a consuming task.

He is just like our elected officials. Always making new laws. ( The definition of success in their jobs. )
