Need power steering tank

My P/S tank has a small leak at the drain plug,I have tried to seal it with no luck.
I called Monaco and they were no help.
It is made out of some kind of plastic.It hold 4-5 QTs.
I have a rear radiator so I don't know why the tank is so large. I have a friend with a pusher and rear radiator and his tank holds about 2 QTs?
I have a lot of room where the tank is,so I could make almost any tank work,if I could find one.
Is there any reason that I could not use a smaller tank?

The tank might be more than just for the power steering. Other hydraulic powered systems might share that reservoir, like a hydraulic fan, etc. I wouldn't use a smaller tank. Monaco probably didn't supply the tank, it would have been supplied by the engine or chassis manufacturer. You should consult them to find a replacement.

Your radiator fan probably uses the the same reservoir. My reservoir is steel
and I think it came from Cummins
