Reservoir capacity

My 02 Windsor has a reservoir on the curb side next to the gen set. I think it might be for the jacks. Question is what is the normal fill level. It appears to have had a dipstick attached to the cap but has been broken off. It has a red ATF looking fluid in it.

Hi Gilcolog; Yes, that is the RVA jack reservoir and it is filled with ATF. And there should be a cap on the treaded section to keep dirt out. There is a procedure to fill the tank to the proper level. It should be in the chassis section of your owners manual. You do deploy one jack so far and add to the tank. I can't remember every step but that info is in the manual. If you don't have access to the manual you can go to Monaco's web site and download it. Do it right otherwise you can overfill the tank. You will need to get some type of cover for the fill on the tank until you get a new cap. Not sure where you get one but someone here will know.

The way I remember to fill reservoir is place one jack down approx. 6 inches, turn ignition on and unit should alarm, have some one monitor alarm, fill reservoir until leveler alarm stops alarming., install reservoir cap, retract jack and you should be ready to go.

Good memory, Outbound. That's exactly the procedure in my literature from the manufacturer of the RVA JII jacks.
