Hydraulic fluid level?

Had a tough time putting the slides in after our Memorial weekend trip they made a lot if noise but moved in very slowly. I think it might be from low hydraulic fluid? This pic is with all slides in and all jacks up. There is no level indicator that I can see. Am I low on fluid or is this level correct? Thanks all!

The fluid level with all slides in and jacks up should be around the top indentation on the tank. That is where the indicator line is on mine.

Do you use any kind of special fluid or can I pick it up at anywhere?

Dextron III. You should be able to get it at any auto-parts store.

If your level has decreased, be sure to do a thorough inspection for leaks. I found one at a hose clamp, center of coach, extreme back end. I'm not sure what that metal box does, but it was slowly leaking oily fluid. Come to think of it, I think the fluid was clear, so probably wasn't hydraulic fluid. But anyway, check for leaks!
