Safari cascade hyd system lost & not found

I have a safari cascade and I can not find the hyd system for the jacks and slide out; my front jack will not retract and now all the control board will do is blink. My main problem is that the hyd pump is not where the owners manual says it should be.

Sorry for your trouble. Not familiar with your coach but on our coach the pump and reservoir is hidden behind the dash air conditioner condenser radiator that is located just behind the driver's side rear wheel. Look for a grill with a radiator behind it. Ours requires one of those spline keys like used on soft drink machines to open. Once the outer panel is open use the key a second time to open and swing out the radiator. The pump and tank is behind that.

You may find something like the photo below:

Thank you Bob for suggestion, we saw that cooler, but we figured it was a transmission cooler. We shall give it a try, be it in 20° weather, but if I don't get my Lp tank filled my whole coach will turn in to a pop cycle.

Well Bob it was right where you said it might be; I guess in 2009 Monaco was running a little on the confused side. I just wish it was as clean as yours, mine was a mess of oil, grease, and dirt, and like many other people have reported the pump seal leaked and flooded the motor with oil. Once I get my coach to it's final resting place (be it only for a month lol), I will pull the whole mess out and do a complete rebuild. I may even rotate my unit 90 degrees like yours, it would make servicing a lot easier. Thanks again for your help, it was just the Rx this coach needed.

Glad we could help.
