Sunseeker 2500ts auto levelers

Hi. A little bit about us. I've been retired a while now. My wife recently retired. We are the proud owners of a new MH and we love it. We have a 2019 2500ts. Although this is our first MH we have been camping for years. The MH has Lippert auto levelers. The jacks are not working properly so someone said check the fluid in the reservoir, so I did and it appears to be low. The problem is that the reservoir is under the MH and the fill cap is horizontal and in a place I can't get to without spilling everywhere. Why in the world would they place it in a spot that is difficult to fill? What the heck's up with that? How does one go about refilling the reservoir? Anybody else have this problem?

Thank you.

May be obvious but check the oil with the jacks retracted.

Oil

What type of oil or fluid do you put in the Bigfoot reservoir?

[QUOTE=Gideon;2058866]What type of oil or fluid do you put in the Bigfoot reservoir?[/

From their web site use ATF (Dexron III) do NOT use hydraulic fluid in our systems.

My Bigfoot system has independent pumps and tanks. The Jack is a unit. The tank is small and does not take much. It just has a little rubber cork for a cap.
Mine are always weeping oil. Nothing serious, just need to wipe things off from time to time. I check and wipe maybe ounce a year.
They are 6 years old and no issues as yet.
