3051s Bigfoot

Ok so searching I found some but not for the 3051.

Anyone know or have a picture where the Bigfoot hydraulic reservoir is on the 2014 3051?

Havenít completely crawled around underneath yet and didnít spot it where another post had it on the 3011.

Thanks

Should be in the same spot. It's above the frame so it's hard to see

I asked the service shop to check mine while getting the oil changed, and he told me that each leveler has a tank and pump on each jack. Said they were all 1/2 full so he let them be.

After reading this thread I thought Iíd check mine out since the last time we were out it sounded like the one leveled didnít want to stop when leveling. I was thinking maybe hydraulic fluid could be low. Mine is a 2015 3010 with each leveler having its own pump, and I had never opened the box where they are to check.I donít know why I thought the reservoirs would be small, but I got a quart of fluid on the way home from work. Letís just say I went back and got a gallon container. The reservoirs are pretty big and the rear ones were lower than the front, but total it probably took over 2 quarts and I filled them to around 3/4.

About how low were they? Please don't tell me about 1/2 full!

The fronts about half. The rears were probably 1/3. Iím thinking thatís plenty of fluid to work properly, so Iím hoping the problem I had with the one sounding like it wouldnít turn off when leveling isnít something else. Iíve put them up and down several times since then and no problems.

If it’s a central pump and reservoir it will be about mid coach on the drivers side tucked up along the frame rail.

Per Quadra it should be filled to about 1-1/2” from the top.

Thanks for the responses. Now to get out to storage and check mine.

I think I have the four reservoirs also.

Need to look up the type of fluid too. Know it is ATF but think it is specific type.
