Hydraulic pump location

I need help in locating the hydraulic pump reservoir for the jacks and the slideouts for my 2008 Gulf Stream toy hauler "Gladiator". The slides and jacks are very slow to operate and I suspect that the reservoir may need servicing. My motorhome owner's manual is probably the worst written owner's manual I have ever seen. Any help out there would be appreciated.

Sounds maybe more like low 12V issues

Agree on the 12V being low if they were skipping like it was catching air then it would be low, the tank will be with the motor locate the motor and the tank will be on it

Thanks for the input. I have discovered that the two coach batteries are dead. These were the original Interstate batteries placed in service when Gulf Stream made the coach. I guess four years is pretty good service for a coach battery. My rv stays in storage when not in use. No electrical hook up to keep the charge up. What I don't understand, is why do I need to run the engine to put the slides out? My previous coach, a 5th wheel Cardinal had hydraulic slides and all I needed was electricity. I guess that if the batteries were fully charged, the hydraulic actuated slides would operate without the engine running. The literature I received from the seller, makes no mention on how to operate the slide. Go figure!

Some of the manfactures want to run the engine to get the extra voltage boost from the ALT, but with dead batterys or bad ones it a wonder it went out at all. I feel when you replace them you will see a big difference. One thing you can do is while it's in storage if it is for long periods of time is to remove the batterys and keep them where you can trickle charge them.
