Question 1994 Allegro Bay Pusher, need help find steering fluid canister

Hello, I am told that the steering fluid canister should be in the engine compartment in the back but I Have looked high and low for it and can't find anything close. Someone on another forum said the reservoir on the right side of the radiator that the ATF goes to is where it goes and that you don't add power steering fluid but rather AFT is that true? Then again an RV shop told me it's the canister which makes more sense to me, but I can't find it and I have to move soon and I don't know where to add the ATF or is it steering fluid? I searched this forum, online everywhere and can't seem to find an answer. I have a picture of my engine compartment if that helps.
I would appreciate any help.

I'll throw this out and hope it helps , my DSDP with side rad, the P/S shares a pump with the hydraulic rad fan motor and the shares a resivoir and the ATF type 3.
Are you on a Freightliner chassis, Spartan ?? the chassis maker mounts the resivoirs so they would be the people to ask.
My resivoir is 10" in diameter and 15' tall. If you find the resivoir then the existing fluid color will be your guide , red=ATF, clear=PSF

I had a 94 it should be on the right side white plastic with a black cap. If I could see your picture it would help. It takes ATF.
