Hydraulic Jack Problem, 1999 Storm MH


I own a 1999 Fleetwood Storm 31 footer, with Ford V10.

Three of my four jacks retracted, the rear driver side came up about half way. I can pry it up further.

When I attempt to power the jacks back down the pump just whines and the jacks do not move.

I think I need to add fluid to the reservoir. Can you help with where that reservoir may be located please?

My 200 Southwind hyd unit is right behind the front right tire. There is a hex plug toward the top that unscrews to fill it. Fill it with the jacks retracted. you should be able to touch the fluid with your finger.

On my storm it is behind the left front tire. There is an access door just above the Genny. Reach in, unscrew the cap and fiil until your finger tip feels the fluid. Mine uses automatic transmission fluid.
