Leveler light and beeper are on but "stilts" appear up.

Customer Question
Leveler light and beeper...

Leveler light and beeper are on but "stilts" appear up. Where is the ATF reservoir--1996 Fleetwood Southwind?

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Red one at 12 o'clock from driver's wheel above the speedometer

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Fleetwood yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, I just bought it about 1 month ago. Tried to retract all levelers, but warning light and aural alrm persisted.

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

How much?

Sorry for the delay, I see no other experts have responded.

IF the jacks are working which sounds like they are have someone extend the jacks and then listen for the pump/motor and go to that area, the tank that holds the fluid will be connected to the manifold and tank that holds the fluid. Make sure you check the level with the jacks stored as the fluid gets pushed back into the tank when the jacks retract. The fluid level should be right below the fill port with them stored.

Let me know if you can still not find the tank.......

Hope this points you in the right direction, if you are satisfied with my efforts please feel free to select a STAR rating on the page...
