Power Gear Levelers fluid reservoir

Can somebody please tell me where the fluid reservoir is for the levelers? I haven't looked yet, but I'm hoping it's easily accessible. I seem to recall seeing something under the hood to the right. I have an '06 Dolphin 5342. Thanks in advance.

I'd start under the hood. If you find the hydraulic lines going to a central point, you've found it.

I will do that, thanks. I know I've seen the Power Gear logo on something while concentrating on another repair.

you are right about being under the hood, i have had to add some to mne and i found the easy way is to get a little squirt oil can with the hand trigger otherwise it will be hard to put oil in. they use atf. oh yes, make sure it has the flexible spout.

If I were a hydraulics reservoir for the Power Gear equipment, where would I be? Nothing is marked and the manual doesn't help. I see no fill cap on the power unit itself.

It's the first one. Isn't that a cap on the top? If not, that pump will be connected to a reservoir somewhere.

Definitely don't put ATF in the off-white plastic one! That's your brake fluid reservoir!!

The third one is power steering fluid.

EDIT: On many Nationals I think the leveler reservoir is just behind the grill.

Yes, thanks. Realized later they were brake and power steering. Didn't see a fill cap on the Power Gear unit. I'll need to look closer.

Checked again. Not a fill cap. Not sure where it is.

the fill cap is on the side of the reservoir, if i remember right it was on the front faceing part, i will be at my rv tomorrow and can tell you for sure if you haven't found it yet. i am positive it is not on top that is why the little squirt can is so handy.

I'd appreciate that. It's really hard to tell. A photo would be awesome if you think about it. I'd be grateful.

My pictures are not very helpful but it is on the back of the reservoir, there is a plug with wires and beside that is the fill plug. I got this from the po when I had to add fluid to mine. To tell the truth I cannot figure out how to post the pictures. they are on my phone.if you want to pm me i can text them to you.

Try a hand mirror and a flashlight to find the fill cap.......or maybe squeeze underneath and up by the tire to see.
