Hi my name is Robert.....

Many times what you can do is run the jacks and listen for the motor the reservoir is connector to the motor and will have a round knob that you unscrew. I want to say on pace-arrow it is behind the batteries and difficult to get at, going off of memory on that. IF you have a jack that is down 6 inches you could have a bad solenoid valve or a bad seal on the jack. The fluid level should be checked with the jacks retracted as the fluid gets pushed back to the tank when the jacks retract, if one jack is down 6" then I would ensure the level in the tank is about 1" from the top, if you fill it all the way up and then that jack goes up it could push fluid out of the tank.... Hope this helps some... IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me... Robert
