LCI Electronic Leveling - New Fluid

Manual states new fluid every 36 months, so I'm over due.

Is there a way to drain the resevore or do I suck the fluid out the top?

What about the fluid in the lines and the jacks?

Does the system need to be bleed?

I'm quessing 4 - 5 quarts, any idea?

If you have done this maintenance before, I sure would apprecieate the details on how this is done.

Thanks!

I sucked it out the top. Forget how many quarts but you are close. Don't forget to do this with the jacks UP.

"Although the manual recommends changing the fluid, it is not necessary because there are no gears involved"

This is a statment I read in regards to changing the leveling system fluid on onther forum. Whats your thoughts on this?

To an extent that is correct, but in that case you should have the oil tested.

All being said I'll just change mine as there is a relatively small amount.

The system is not sealed and there are wear componenets in the pump. The fluid gets contaminated over time and usage. The fluid does need changing.

there are two jacks on each side for fluid replacement - or out the top either way is ok
