My Dynamax dynaquest 302ST...

My Dynamax dynaquest 302ST RV is built on a 2010 Freightliner M2 106 chassis. I noticed a puddle of power steering fluid on the concrete pad below the reservoir. It appears to be leaking from the hose that runs from the reservoir to the trw unit. Do I need a special Freightliner hose? What kind of power steering fluid do I need to replace any I lose while replacing the hose?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

2010 Freightliner M2 106

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

Vin 1fvacwdt0bhaw4621 with a cummins ISB6.7 - 325 engine number 73079827

Good evening
Yes sir you do
Be sure you use proper power steering suction hose, you don't need to get from Freightliner, but make sure you ask for the proper stuff.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

What power steering fluid does Freightliner use? I assume I'll lose a couple of qts draining the reservoir.
Have a look at the color, if it's red then automatic transmission fluid or atf, if not then 15w 40 oil,
