Hydraulic fluid loss

We were at a trade show last weekend,jacks and slides would not retract after checking everything found the fluid in the tank gone ,found no leaks, so put 3qts in finally got everything working, drove 240 miles home . Put mh in barn the next day about 2 qts of fluid was on concrete, still can't find a leak, so is it possible that with everything out I overfilled it and it just puked the excess out ? Just trying to figure this out, as dealer is 150 miles away thanks

You always want to check your fluid level with everything retracted, so you might have overfilled it. It would have been pretty apparent at the trade show though when you pulled the slides in and retracted the jacks as oil would have gushed out the reservoir. Still ... loosing enough oil to prevent the hydraulics working in the first place pretty much points to a leak somewhere ... you just haven't found it yet.
