Power steering

Just getting ready to head out on a two week trip and found that I had no power steering. Had the oil/filter and fuel filters changed yesterday. I found the primary fuel filter was leaking heavily. Any suggestions.

Coach year/make/model?

The power steering runs off a hydraulic pump, not the fuel system. Obviously a fuel leak needs to be fixed, but don't see how that affects power steering.

Our power steering pump leaked and ultimately killed the pump altogether. Had a new pump installed and all is fine. Check your fluid level, if it is really low, your pump might be toast.

If you have an older Dynasty, your power steering is powered by the same hydraulic system that powers your radiator fan. That's the way my 2000 works.

Sorry for the lack of information. My coach is a 2008 Monaco Dynasty. I think I have found the problem. When the filter was changed, there was no gasket put on, so the dealer refilled the pump, overfill ingredients it, thus I had atf all over the back of the coach. Now, after talking with the monaco techs, got it filled correctly and am back on the road again. Hopefully without further incidents.
