Is the color of the brake fluid that is in the resevior any indication of what the color would be at the brakes? Clear at the res, dark at the brakes?

Al, No it won't. The fluid at the bleeders will most likely be a lot darker.

Fluid will probably be darker, and even if it's not, the lighter color might not be a true indicator of needing to be replaced. Workhorse for some reason doesn't make a specific recommendation (2006 Workhorse Chassis Manual), other than deferring to other manufacturers, who do recommend the brake fluid to be replaced every two years.

And since you have a model-year chassis that is susceptible to brake issues, it's best to stay on top of the brake maintenance.
