Hi my name is Robert....

YES it indicates the fluid is low, as the jacks retract the fluid gets pushed back to the tank and will raise a float switch, if the switch does not raise the alarm will go off, if it is right at the float switch the alarm can go off as the fluid is moving around in the tank, it will take Dexron fluid. To find the tank have some one run the jacks and listen for the pump/motor, the tank will be connected to the pump/motor and should have a round dip stick or plug you can remove at the top of the tank. Make sure the jacks are retracted when checking and 1/2" below the fill port. IF you need more help please let me know.

There is a small side panel door on the side of the RV above the generator panel. Is this the acsess door to the hydraulic fluid tank?
Expert:  Robert replied 22 days ago.

That is a common area that they will stick the manifold and pump, listen for the pump and that should give you a general area of where it is located, the pump/motor will be attached to the tank.... It will have hoses going to the manifold..... Robert
