What Fill Level in Hydraulic Bay ?

I opened two of my slides today, and while open, I checked the level of fluid in the pump tank in prep for our departure to Goshen. With the two slides out, it is about 2/3 full. Is this about what would be expected ?

Thanks,
Ken

Always check fluid level with all slides in and all landing gear (if hydraulic ) up ... always. Fluid should be about 1"- 1/2" from the top of the reservoir in that state. If you fill it with anything out ... the reservoir will not hold it all when you bring the slides in. There is less volume inside a cylinder on the rod side due to the rod displacing fluid area.

Exactly what Diesel guy said. One other note on mine someone had just slapped the full line sticker on and the tech that checked my unit said it was way wrong. He moved it to show the level at about 1-1/2 "
