2001 National Sea View M-3410 leveling jacks

Just bought our first motorhome. The jacks don't want to come down, and the previous owner indicated it may be low on fluid.
Does anyone have a picture of where this hydraulic reservoir for the jacks is located on the M-3410? I looked inside the front engine opening and can't seem to spot it.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks.
Tim.

You'll need to look up the manufacturer. Most everything on your RV was made by a separate company then installed by the RV manufacturer. A good step would be to note the make and model of each system in your RV and Google the make and model with the word 'manual.' Your jacks are a good first step, check on the face plate of the dash controller.

Usually the reservoir is a rectangular metal tank with the pump and hydraulic lines attached. Often in gas chassis it's located in the front, near the fender wells or radiator. On others it's located along the frame rails.

On the Ford chassis the reservoir will be in the front to the right of the of the radiator (left when looking through the front access hood). Does the pump run? Do you get an alarm when you power on the control pad? The level would have to be really low for the jacks not to try and go down at all. The transmission need to be in park and the parking brake applied for the jack to work. The house battery disconnect needs to be on also.

Thanks all for the inputs. I finally found the reservoir, but the issue was the parking brake pedal, apparently I needed one more click and then the jacks went down without any issues.
The fluid level was fine..... I checked after I retracted all jacks.
Thanks.
Tim.

There is a National RV Owners Forum on iRV2 and Yahoo Groups. They are both good resources for help with your Sea View.
