I had a 1999 and it was transmission fluid. A lot of electric/hydraulic pumps use trans fluid. It also stated the fluid type on the side of the resevoir. Mine power unit was behind a screwed in cover behind the coach batteries. You could find it by tracing the hydraulic lines from the jacks back to the power unit. Shouldn't be too hard.

If you have HWH leveling jacks, they use Dexron III transmission fluid without the red dye. HWH does not use the red dye in their fluid so it will not stain your concrete driveway in the event of a leak. HWH fluid is available at Camping World and at many RV dealers. Transmission fluid with the red dye and that is compatible with Dexron III can be used as an alternative.

DO NOT use hydraulic jack oil because it may damage the seals in your leveling system.

Where to put it is about six inches from the pump motor, So use your ears to find the pump while your partner levels the rig.

What to use, Like the above poster my Power Gear uses Dextron III but in the event yours is not the same.. There is a sticker on the tank.

NOTE: Retract Jacks BEFORE adding fluid.
