Lippert leveling system- correct fluid?

While at Camping World I asked for some fluid for my Lippert leveling system and was told to use the HWH fluid. The one that states, 'for HWH systems' on the bottle.

I purchased two quarts, but am now cautious if this is in fact compatible with the Lippert system that Thor uses.

Anyone out there know if this is in fact alright to use?

The Lippert Electronic Leveling System is pre-filled, primed and ready to operate direct from the manufacturer. Type “A” Automatic
Transmission Fluid (ATF) is utilized and will work. ATF with Dexron III or Mercon 5 or a blend of both is recommended by Lippert
Components, Inc. In colder temperatures (less than 10° F) the jacks may extend and retract slowly due to the fluid’s molecular
nature. For cold weather operation, fluid specially formulated for low temperatures may be desirable. Please consult factory before
using any other fluids.

So, it sounds like they knew what they were talking abut then.
I am now assuming mixing their clear HWH fluid with what is currently in the tank (red Dexron) is also not an issue.

Dex/Merc fluid only I was told by lippert. There are some other recommended fluids but it's recommended based on slide issues...
