Hydraulic fluid on ground

Our 1998 36 MDSS has been stored in the driveway for a year. On return from annual service we noticed some hudraulic fluid on the ground under the slide. Any ideas of the best way to remedy this?

Most likely a hose connection or a cylinder seal, if it has set for a year. Hoses are somewhat easy to replace--cylinder seals, not so much.

Please tell us EXACTLY where the leak showed up.

What have you been able to determine as the source by eyeball (or phone camera!)?

service top off

I noticed some fluid dripping after a rear hose was replaced and the reservoir was topped off. After cleaning up around the pump and leveling the coach, no more drip.
Did your service people top off the hydraulic fluid?
