Are sure you have hydraulic brakes or could you have air brakes?

Hi Touchrock and Welcome to the Forum!

Sorry, but we still need more info. HR used the alumna-lite name on all their RVs, even the trailers. Based on your question it must be a motorhome so is this a Class C or Class A and which chassis? Ford or Chev?

If it is not up high on the firewall then follow a hydraulic brake line from the front wheel to the master cylinder.

Not sure if your Chevy is the same but on my Ford chassis the MC is mounted above the front frame rail. You can see it if you peek behind the front driver's side tire.

If it is a class c its on the firewall. If its a class A its behind the left front wheel under the drivers seat. Not a pleasant place to check. Have fun.

Remove the engine cover, look down near front left corner of engine. Our previous MH had a shield running above the frame rail on drivers side so couldn't access or see reservoir from outside.

Mine is also located in a difficult location. Either remove the engine cover and have someone with small but long arms reach into left side, use a flashlight to locate it and a screw driver to pop the cap.
When I replaced my shocks and rebuilt my brakes, the driver front tire was off. That is the way to get to it best, just more work.

I have the same MH
The master cyl is looking acted right under the drivers floorboard.
You can reach it from under the MH or raise engine cover and angle off left side.
You asked about hydraulic reservoir, do you mean for the jacks? If so, right side just below grill on front frame.
Hop this helps
Jeff
