I agree, you would think they could/would at least check fluid levels on the engine.

When I said it was low that was a understatement... just finished topping it off. It took 2 WHOLE qt's of power steering fluid until it was at the full mark on the dip stick.

I do believe I would check the engine oil, the tranny, radiator and crawl underneath and check the rear end just to be safe.

Yep. Already checked the engine oil. Did that the first day before driving it off the lot. Now I will check everything including the generator oil.

Question is this... what type of braking system is on my unit? There is a "whine" when I hit the brake peddle. Even when the coach is not running the brake pedal makes a sound.. Cant find any documentation on this..

Thanks in advance
Yes that is a battery powered hydraulic pump which backs up the belt driven steering pump. The brake booster is supplied by steering fluid in normal operation. The Economy chassis is much smaller than the F-53 and the V10 is smaller in power and features than in the F-53.

Happy you caught it before more damage occurred, now you have a basic understanding of those systems.

Yes glad I caught it. Happy, no. Its a brand new chassis, should not have a leaking power steering unit. I understand the coach is going to have things that need fixed, but not the actual chassis from Ford.
