Stabilizer Jacks?

Funny you should ask. I have a 2007 Dolphin that I just left at the repair shop. One of my questions to them was WHERE is the reservoir for the jacks???? They said they would show me when I pick it up...so if you don't get an answer in a couple of days, I may have it. It's not in my manual either.

Reservoir

My 1999 Tradewinds is in the drivers side compartment just behind the rear wheel. Tall metal tank with pipe plug for filling.

ANSWER tech showed me the fluid reservoir is in the engine compartment access from the front of the motor home. Open it, and the windshield washer fluid reservoir is on the left. the jacks pump and fluid are underneath that. At least on our 2007 Dolphin. hope this helps all.

i knew where that was, my problem is i have not seen a way to add and check fluid. as i said i am on the road and i will not crawl around under there unless it becomes a problem. i am getting an occasional jack alarm when i turn certain ways, that leads me to believe low fluid. tia.

I asked that too. Tech wiped grime off of fluid resivoir and you could see it was full. At the top/side is a rubber "plug" that you have to yank to get off/open. It pulled off and I could see the fluid in it. No crawling around, just open the front hood. Good luck.

Location on my 2002 Sea Breeze

Here is a picture of where mine is located. Took this picture from underneath. It's on the left side just below the fill for the windshield wash. Hope this helps. The fill is on the top of the tank to the left in the picture. Can't miss the red circle. Click image for larger version
