how to check hydraulic fluid level

We have a 2012 Georgetown 360 and are trying to find out how to check the hydraulic level for the slides and landing gear. Can somebody tell us where it's located?

The hydraulic system is located in a storage bin generally will see manifolds, tubing, and a reservoir....there will be level markings on the reservoir for your references.....

Remove the portable entrance step for access. (Use the coke machine key)

With the slide-outs in, and the jacks up, the fluid level in the reservoir should be within 1/4" of the top filler cap. The fluid used for the Lippert hydraulics is Dexron/Mercon automatic transmission fluid. It is the older type fluid used typically for pre-2006 automobiles and is readily available at auto parts stores and Wal-Mart. You will probably need a long narrow funnel to get past all the cables and hoses to add fluid.

With everything (slides/levellers) retracted the reservoir fluid level should be approximately 1/2 inch from top of reservoir. A little less fluid would not be a problem.
