Leveling System, Do I need a specific Oil

Do I need a specific Hydraulic Oil for my Leveling System, It seems what is on the dip stick is Pink, could that be Automatic Trans Fluid?

I have a 93 Winn Vectra Gas 37'

Do you know the system brand ; HWH, Powergear, Lippert ?

HWH, of your coaches vintage used ATF.

Latest, from HWH, is their Hydraulic fluid, but Dexron or multi purpose ATF is ok.
Do not use Power steering fluid, brake fluid or hydraulic jack oil.

Yes HWH

I thought since it was red it was ATF, but did not want to assume.

Thanks.

Most RV hydraulics use an ATF. Often the dip stick will have the type oil used stamped on it. Also the operations manual will have the fluid specifics.

It is transmission fluid! Dexron 3 or Mercon (? number). Do not use hydraulic jack oil or brake fluid.

For Powergear jacks, per them, they recommended Mercon V to eliminate a popping noise in cold weather. It seems to be working.
