Make sure that the oil has no dye marker in it, use only clear oil. I have heard of staining with the colored oil.

HWW/HWR do you mean HWH or what? If it is HWH it is probably Dextron III Automatic Transmission Fluid. Do not mix hydralic oil with Dextron III Fluid or you will get a foaming problem. Should be in your owners manual or contact the manuafacturer.

Thanks all for the info.
However I still have the same problem. It states in the Operator's Manual. Quote: Fluid: HWH Speciality Hydraulic Oil is recommended. In an emergency Dexron automatic transmission fluid can be used. Note: Dexron automatic transmission fluid contains red dye and can cause staining should a leak occur. DO NOT USE brake fluid or hydraulic "jack" fluid. Use of these can damage seals. Unquote.

As I said before I have looked everwhere and can not fine the clear hydraulic oil. I talked to the HWH company that makes the system and they said use the Dextron III Transmission Fluid. The system is still under warrenty, so I want to be sure I use the proper oil.
HELP. HELP. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Again Thanks.

Check the HWH website for their 800 number and give them a call. They are very helpful and will reassure you as to what to use.

Camping World (probably other RV stores) sells the HWH Oil that you are refering to.

ATF will not hurt anything. Your warranty will not be void, and it is the same stuff as Dexron III. ATF just has the red dye.

Mercruiser (boat engines? say to use their oil in the power steering and trim system too. It is a clear oil, however 2 different boat dealers told me that Mercruiser oil is just Dexron without the red dye and much more expensive.

Just a thought, what type of hydralic oil do farmers use in their tractors and such? How about the oil used for bottle and floor jacks?

The only advantage of using the HWH brand oil is the absence of the red dye. If your slides are hydraulically operated there is a chance that if a leak develops that you could stain the carpet,etc.
