I have a 2002 Winnebago Ultimate Advantage on a Mountain Master chassis with a 8.3 350hp cummins . Last year I had the hydraulic pump replaced .Everything was fine until recently I don't have power steering at an idle. It developed a leak that seemed to be coming from the hydraulic reservoir .I changed the gasket on the cover which seems to have solved the problem. it was suggested to me that there may be some air in the system . Does that seem like a possibility and if so how do I get the air out .

To clarify my power steering problem . Replacing the gasket on the tank fixed the leak but I still don't have power steering at idle making it difficult to back into a site . The thinking was that maybe air got into the system thru the bad gasket .
I've used a vacuum pump to pull air pockets out of ps systems but due to distance from the pump to the gear dont think that will work, try racking the steering at a higher rpm and if it is a bubble that may work it out.
