Oil leak - brake fluid and steering fluid checks?

I am trying to determine what i have leaking here. I think it is brake fluid but i am not positive. I also am not sure where to check the brake fluid and power steering fluid in our coach. It is a 2003 Georgie Boy 2450ds Landau LE with the 8.1 liter and a 2002 p32 chassis I believe. I am also interested in getting a manual ( maintenance and / or owner manual ) if they are available because it did not come with one. Thank you.Click image for larger version

Generally brakes only have one hose at each caliper and one teed/split at rear axel. Most brake fluid will kind of irritate/warm sensitive skin like on your wrist has distinctive nasty taste. I'm old school lol.
Is there a small PS cooler that lines/hoses go to from pics I don't know where the pic is at all.
PS pump is belt driven pump ,GM reservoirs were usually on pump not sure if MH had the remote cylinder black can.
Brake reservoir on top of brake master cylinder about two feet above brake pedal.
There are many former and current P30 owners on here that should chime in.

You could just clean everything very well, and wait for the stain to start again.

The way the hose are crimped, the diameter, design of the ends, and the hoses, screams brake hose to me. I would follow the lines and verify where with come from or are going to.

These are brake lines from the anti-lock control valve. The big hard line goes to the rear brakes and the smaller goes to the right front wheel. There is 3 more coming off the control valve assy. Need to check them also. That is a real rusty line going to the rear brakes. Need to inspect all your lines and replace any that are suspect to failure.
The master cylinder reservoir is on top of the master cylinder. You can see it from the left front wheel wheel well-high and forward. You can also access it through the dog house. Left and forward.
The power steering/brake booster reservoir is in front of the radiator on the driver's side.
Hop this helps.

I can not tell from pictures.. but check brake and p/s resovior.. it level is ok.. check trans oil.. the pictures look like my trans cooler lines.. also check eng oil.. level.. the eng has a oil cooler built in with condenser .. and those O rings tend to leak.. my bet is trans or eng cooler lines.. but I just can't get oriented in my mind.. use white paper towels and wipe some on.. if red.. it's could be trans cooler.. if black could be eng.. or p/s or brakes
Good luck and let us know what you did and maybe better members then me will help you

You can access the brake master cylinder through the drivers side wheel well.
