Had some hydrolic lines leaking and fix it but need to add fluid. Where do you add fluid and what kind of fluid? I have a 2002 Winne Adventurer with a workhorse engine. Thanks.

I would think you would add fluid very close to the pump.
Turn pump on and find it close by or on the pump.

Most of the hydraulic systems have the tank bulit into the end of the pump unit. It may be in a bay or underneath the unit mounted against the frame rail. On top of the unit should be a screw cap that may also act as a breather/vent.

Your coach will have specific instructions as to what fluid is used in the system and when to check the level. My unit used standard ATF and is checked only when the slides are in. The class C we had with an HWH system also used ATF and was checked when the levelers were up or retracted.

Big thing is to read the manuals.

On our '05 Itasca Sunrise the reserve tank is right below and back of the driver side entrance door to the cab. It can be accessed by opening the outside basement storage door closest to the driver's door. Our's has a cap on the tank that also has a fluid level stick built into it. Our manual says to use Dextron 3 hydraulic fluid when refilling it, something I plan on doing next week when we take it out of storage. Hope this helps, not same model but it is on a Workhorse chassis.
