2001 Islander Hydraulic Radiator Fan Fluid Location?

I'm missing the owners manuals. Where do you check hydraulic fluid for the radiator fan. If it's low what fluid is called for.

Also any other fluids that need to be checked regularly -- I know where Oil, Transmission, and Coolant are but any others?

Thanks!

The fan should use the same fluid as the power steering. You should have a rather large tank in the engine compartment that also contains filters that require periodic maintenance.

Power steering/Fan fluid

On my Islander, facing the engine it is on the right, a big black tank, holds a lot of fluid, has a dip stick. I was like you, even though I had manual, there was not one line mentioned about a power steering tank. I looked and looked, finally I unscrewed the cap and behold a dip stick was on the end and the fluid was red, AH! I found it! Fortunately, it was filled to where it should.
