What type of hydraulic fluid can I use to add to my system

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, which fluid are you talking about? And what color and consistency is it?

For my leveling system

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your RV?

2017 forza

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

I need to add some hydraulic fluid because it is low and it has aw22s in it but I can't find any so I need to know if I can use something else

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

You charge for this don't you
