How to check the brake fluid?!

How the heck am i supposed to access this brake MC? I can see the little cutout do access the lid, but Do i need to pull the front wheel off to get in there? no way to get in there and see accurately from underneath.

Rig is in the Sig. Any tips?

Sorry RVip,

I don’t have your answer but I want to hear it. So I’ll tag along on your question and wait til someone smarter than me helps us. What type of Monaco do you have?
I’m running a 2001 Monaco Dynasty 35FD.

Really need to know what rig you have. If it is a Sig, then you have air brakes and no master cylinder...

Diesel pushers all have air brakes, no master cylinder. If Yours is a gasser the cylinder will be under the hood hatch.

Monacojim - what CountryB is telling you is you don't have a signature.

BTW I am hoping you don't have airbrakes or this will be a bit embarrassing for you.

Oh crap. Why is my signature not displaying?!

I don’t have air brakes. I’m a mechanic so I know THAT much. Haha.

I have an 89 Holiday Rambler Aluma Lite.

I'm not familiar with the HR Aluma Lite line, but looking on the HR website, I see a few models. The AlumLite "XL" is the only one that has manuals going back to 1990.
So - if that is you model, and you don't already have the Owners Manual, here is a link (and it was wiring diagrams which can be very valuable for an older coach). Good luck

Oops. Meant RViP not Monacojim. Lost my place. Glad you don't have air brakes, can't help but someone here will.

If you can reach a plastic tank cap take it off ,reach in snap a pic with phone. No huge problem if you then overfill it a bit. Fill it to top suck out a bit extra with cheap/ dollar store turkey baster. don't put back in kitchen.
