Help !!! where is my master cylinder

I just acquired a 87 Coachmen Royal 36' its a Chevrolet chassis best I can tell. Gas not diesel. My neighbor drove it over and got out and told me it has no brakes and he is not sure where the master cylinder is. I looked it over for a few minutes before dark but did not find it.

Does anyone "know" where it is?

Thank you

It's on the drivers side above the tire,against the frame. Hard to see,hard to fill. Ed

Thanks Ed, I will look for it again in the morning. He said it was fine in November but who knows. Maybe I will get real lucky and it only be a line.

Haven't looked that closely at the '88 Winnie we recently bought - but seems to me there is a brake fluid canister accessible on the front engine bulkhead that is easily accessed from front of MH under the "hood"...

Might need to add fluid and bleed the brakes.

I found it on drivers side on the inside of frame behind the wheel. You can feel it but not see it. I found by taking off the inside cowl/hood I can see it and think I can reach it.

Thanks Everyone, I am sure I will have many more questions in the future.

Well let the fun begin !! its a busted line up front. I turned it around in the yard and had the cowl open inside. When I hit the pedal fluid squirted somewhere on the exhaust right at the engine sending up a puff of smoke.
