Steering/Fan Reservoir Filter part number for 2004 Holiday Rambler

My owner's manual does not state the part number for the filters (3), only the process to change them. Does anybody have that?
Also, I wonder how easy it is to let enough oil out from the bottom fitting to expose the bottom filter or should I just plan to empty the entire reservoir?
Some captions of the Owner's Manual:
"The Nelson hydraulic reservoir with internal filter system is located in the engine compartment. It is the reservoir for both the hydraulic fan drive system and power steering system. The hydraulic filter assembly is located inside the reservoir...
...Place the drain bucket under the reservoir and loosen one of the bottom fittings to drain the reservoir. Drain only enough fluid from the reservoir to expose bottom filter, then tighten fitting..."

I believe I have the same reservior and my manual lists the filter as a Nelson 84101B


Also attached is the parts page for my coach showing the tank and the part numbers.

Thank you Jim. Your manual is much clearer with good pictures.
I actually had to guess where the reservoir is based on the process to replace the filters as the reservoir had stickers not related to it.

Here's what I've used. Verify that the fluid is the same. Seems like Monaco used different fluids.

(3) needed NAPA 7196
• Fluid ATF Dextron III Napa # NP75203

Draining the hydraulic reservoir

Before I start the filter change, how does everybody drain the oil from the sump?
Is there room for a pump pick-up tube as it seems to me that disconnecting the hydraulic fittings at the bottom is a lot messier and more work than is needed just to drain the sump?

Yes, from memory, a pump would work. This would be a good option if you have a pump.



I believe I just loosened a line and was able to use a makeshift catch to divert the oil away from anything into a bucket.
