I have pics that I want to post, but how?The leak comes from a yellow pipe that is aligned with the axle in the middle between the 2 front tires.Its a pipe that is probably changed from time to time.This is a ford chassis.

It's just a steering stabilizer. Think of it as a shock absorber for the steering gear.

This could be the correct part number, check it with the one on your MH.

Bilstein shocks and struts for cars and trucks - Shockwarehouse.com

Thanx guys,It is the steering stabilizer.Spoke to Bilstein,gonna run me me about 150.00 to replace it.Atleast the leak wasn't coming from something serious.I only gashed my head once while checking it out.Think Ill wear a helmet if I try replacing it myself.Lost too much blood the last time.
