fliuid leaking

I have a georgetown 350 and tonight while we were starting to pack for our trip later this month, we saw some smoke coming from under the coach. I went under and saw red fluid coming from behind the right front levler. I was wondering does anyone know where the resivoir for the hydrolic system is. We had the coach running and the generator running also. When we saw the smoke we shut the coach down. We went back and started the coach and the red fluid started flowing after the coach was started. Any help would be appreciated. New to this and do not know where to start. Also look around the tranny know sign of a leak there

It should be in one of the compartments on the driver's side. Believe it's the fourth one. Mine is just before the compartment where my hose connections are. It will be inside a grey carpet covered box. There's a screw in the middle at the bottom. I have a 370 and your coach and mine are the same until you get to the hallway.

The tank is just behind the steps to the door. Its bonded to the hydraulic pump for jacks and slides. were the jacks up or down when you saw leakage? Tranny is pretty far behind the front jacks. The fluid as you know is thin and travels far.

Sorry may have jumped the gun. All the ones I've seen are under chassis near batteries'

Ours is similar to cfsoistman. My "guess" is that the smoke was from the generator exhaust. Coincidentally you discovered the fluid from a leveler or hydralic hoses leaking. I've had a similar problem with my Lippert system. I've had two jacks replaced. Currently I have one leaking slightly and so I check the reservoir each trip. I put a mark on the reservoir when slides are in and jacks down and a full mark for when they are in and raised. Then I can add fluid when needed, which isn't very often.

The hydraulic tank on the 350 is in the propane compartment on the drivers side, 1 door back from the front wheel. I wouldnt think having the coach running would cause the hydraulic pump to run continuously.Transmission fluid line to the cooler?
