2019 372lok hydraulic fluid

I noticed my tank is really low, maybe about 1/4 or so with it bumped in. Itís probably been like that since I got it but I want to add a little bit what type of fluid is in here does anyone know? It has the auto leveling jacks and bump outs off this tank. Fluid looks red

read the owners manual for the system. is it a lippert? ours is and the manual specifies to use automatic transmission fluid (atf). but not just any atf. there are different types of atf and lippert only wants you to use a type that meets there specs. it's in the manual. once you determine which fluid spec to use the fluid is available at all auto parts store and walmart and is only a few dollars for a quart. fill it up when the legs are retracted as that is the time that the most fluid will be in the reservoir. then you can add fluid up to near the top of the reservoir. again i think the manual says something like so far from the top. funny there doesn't seem to be a fill line on our reservoir. if you fill when the legs are out and overfill the fluid will overflow when you retract the legs.

Yeah, Its lippert. We kept everything we got in the camper. Its like 15 manuals inside a holder and nothing talks about what kind of hyd. oil it takes. I even pulled the manual from forest rivers website and says nothing. I know my hyd pump is a "7 QT hyd LB. # 251910" and I have the serial number but nothing about the oil. Here is a picture of the tank with nothing on it. Some people said it may be written on the tank.
