Hissing noise from steering in 2018 Ventana

I have a 2018 Ventana 3436. When I am sitting at an idle with the steering wheel turned at all, I get a hissing noise. When the wheel straightens, the noise decreases, but frequently does not go away completely.

Once I start driving, the noise goes away. The coach drives fine.

I now have 22,600 miles on the coach. I can't remember if it has always done this and I just did not notice, but it seems to be getting more intense.

Has anyone else had this experience?

One slight correction here. It is the control valve directing oil to the correct place as it is designed to do. The relief valve should not activate until the very end of travel and sometimes not even then.

I agree that this is completely normal.
To the engineer, the world is a toy box full of sub-optimized and feature-poor toys.

thanks for the input. I will check the fluid next time I am in the coach and if it is OK will not worry about it as much
