Hydraulic Fluid

My fluid tank for the slide outs indicates I need to fill it with hydraulic fluid. What is the best Hydraulic Fluid to use and where is it sold?? Thanks in advance.

Happy New Year

Mine uses automatic transmission fluid for the hydo slide system. Make sure you are checking the fluid level in the tank while the slides are in the closed position.

Do you have a leak somewhere? Should not need to top up otherwise.
Check Lippert web site for fluid recommendations as there are many different auto trans fluid formulations.
Happy New Year to all

Doesn't appear to have a leak. We do you our fiver a lot, 4-6 months a year and we are starting our 4th year with this rig. It's not down much, but I though I should add some.
