I recently took delivery of our 2008 Monaco Monarch and was reading the manuals, getting familiar with the systems. When I read about the leveler may or may not having a grease fitting I went out to see if mine did. Mine did, BUT... in the concave dish bases of each of the four levelers, was a brass threaded plug, just sitting there loose. Probably a the plug where the hydraulic line was attached and just left there. I am guessing as the levelers seem to work just fine and there seems to be no leaks. Maybe this is the assembly lines traditional method of re-cycling these plugs? I plan to bring this up to the dealer with my other questions after a few more days of reading and looking, but does anyone have any comments or similar experiences (or better knowledge of these systems and knows the plugs are actually there just until installed lines are attached).

That's a shipping plug from the Hyd. jack vendor, discarded during instillation.
