2015 Fleetwood Excursion jacks

My jacks down alarm is sounding all the time. I think the hydraulic fluid is low. So, I have two issues, well maybe three . I donít know what brand of jacks they are . I donít know what type of fluid they take and I donít know where to fill the tank as there is no filler opening that I can see. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Wish I could help with the jacks but our coach has air leveling only.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Well,
At the risk of sounding a bit sarcastic, why don't you just look around for the reservoir? The coach is only so big, it's on there somewhere. On ours, which may, or may not be the same as yours, the entire reservoir, pump and manifold is under the front entry steps. As far as what fluid, about 99.99999999% of most hydraulically operated Jack and leveling systems, no matter the brand, use regular ATF in them. Oh, you'll get comments on the fact that many use a CLEAR hydraulic fluid not a PINK fluid like ATF.

It's a news flash, ATF IS hydraulic fluid only, with a dye in it. Yes, there are different brands and weights but, HWH (one of the many suppliers of jack and leveling power systems) does recommend ATF as a top-off or replacement fluid. Power Gear is another one and as far as I know, that company too also uses or recommends ATF as a replacement or top-off.

So, what I'd do is locate your right front jack and, follow the hose from it, all the way back to the manifold and you'll find the reservoir right close to that.
