'13 DSDP Power Steering Fluid?

CA DMV is asking me to identify and check level in the power steering reservoir on my '13 4347 DSDP as part of the test for a license to drive the motorhome. I can't locate the tank. With Comfort Drive, is there even a ps fluid system?

The white plastic container next to the fuel filter is the hydraulic fluid reservoir. It is used for power steering and on some coaches for the engine cooling fan drive. Click image for larger version

TIDBIT......"kortan1"......Many may not know, but in the photo that "andyh" posted, depicting the power steering tank, you can see a cap on the tank, upper left, and another cap, lower right, with a hose coming out. If you do your own servicing, that second cap with hose, is the power steering filter. You remove the cap, install a cartridge and new o-ring to service the power steering.

The filter part number is:

(O-Ring) - 14-15612-000
