1992 HR1000 Holiday Rambler

Hi, I have a 1992 HR1000 Holiday Rambler. I'm wondering if there is anyone who has in the past or currently owns one, or is familiar with working on one knows anything about the power steering fluid. I have worked on my jeep a little, basic maintenance, replacing calipers type of stuff, and would like to be able to do the maintenance on my RV but am finding it difficult to find the right materials to be able to work on my RV with the proper knowledge of whats what. It is a on a Ford Chassis. I'm wondering if there is a manual like the haynes manual for a car available for rvs/460 ford chassis. I recently noticed my steering wheel is squealing if I turn the wheel and I'm not moving, goes away as soon as I move, but I noticed that the steering fluid could be filled up a little, thought i would add some to see if that was a remedy, however, there is no indication of what kind of fluid to use on the cap or with any of the documentation I have, and I would hate to turn an annoying problem into a much more costly problem, So I'm wondering if I'm able to just use regular power steering fluid I would buy at a gas station, or if there are different types for RVs.

It most likel a Ford F53 chassic. A ford service manual for a E350 of the same year will give you most of the service. Service manuals are available. I had a set for my 92.

We also have a '92 HR 1000 on the Ford ('91)F53 chassis. They do make a power steering fluid but automatic transmission fluid works just as well. It does sound like the noise could be a loose belt as whem2fish mentioned. One thing to remember when doing your own service is to grease the fitting on the steering box which is over looked by most folks.
You may want to ask any questions in the Ford chassis form, just scroll down to see it.
