Steering column noise

I have an 01 Frtlnr (02 Kountry Star) that makes a power steering noise at super slow speeds (parking lot). Where is the power steering fluid res.? Or, does it use hydro fluid? Could that be low?

My 08 does the same thing. I believe it is the fluid moving through an angle or elbow in the line going to the steering gear on the steering column. It only does it when I turn and does not get louder or change frequency when I make a tighter turn

Slow speed requires max assist from the box hence the noise, fluid resivoir is beside the engine, if you have a side rad, with hydraulic fan the pump and resivoir are comon to both P/S and fan. Fluid type is on resivoir.
Low fluid noise would be at the pump and assist would be jerky.
