1999 Sea Breeze 1310 Power Gear Leveling

I am having problems with my leveling system and suspect that it needs hydraulic fluid added. Although I am the original owner and kept all the papers I can't find any instructions relative to this system. I have looked on the Power Gear website and sent a request for information, but no luck so far. Any general information would help me including whether this system has a control box separate from the the control panel beside the driver seat. All help appreciated.

David......on my coach the jacks fluid reservoir is located in the 2nd bay from the rear, driver's side, above the fuel filter. There is a fluid level dip stick attached to a hex screw cap. Check the level with the jacks up. I use Dexron ATM fluid. Rook

I had good response from Power Gear, maybe you will hear back.. I changed my fluid last year. The tank on mine was behind the grill, easy to see. I used transmission fluid.

Power Gear jacks manuals attached. My reservoir is in the same place as Don's behind the grill left side.

On the left when looking at it, actually on the right side of the MOHO.

Thanks to all for replies and help. Was looking at the reservoir the whole time and due to my ignorance didn't realize it. Neither drain plug or fill plug visible from above.
Some of my difficulty is that coach owner's manual identifies leveling system as Kwikee Leveleze with pictures of that system. I assume there was a switch during that year's production.

From Power Gear Manual:
Check the fluid level every month. Fill the reservoir with the jacks in the fully retracted position. On vertical pump assemblies, the fluid should be within 1/4 inch of the fill port lip and checked only with all jacks retracted. On horizontal pump assemblies, the fluid level should be up to the weep hole on the side of the reservoir tank and checked only with all jacks retracted.
2. Change fluid every 24 months

Looks like you are a few months late changing the fluid.

Triker56 - you are correct. Last time it was changed was 2008 when I had routine maintenance done at the dealership before they got out of the motor home business.
Updates: Power Gear was able to tell me the system I have and sent me a PDF download of the appropriate manual. They were very helpful.
I filled the reservoir and the jacks are working well. Hope to have time this weekend to drain and replace all the fluid.
Thanks again to all.

I am having problems with my 02 Islander having a drain on the batteries and wont start after a few days of sitting unused. I have replaced batteries, and now have tracked down that the solenoid is not good. I replaced solenoid and now it stays hot when batteries are hooked up to it. I don't have a wiring diagram showing battery boost connections.

I suggest you use Mercon V for the replacement.
Mine took 7 1/2 qt for the tank only change.
