35F Hydraulic Fluid Reservoir Location

We have a 2011 Itasca Sunstar 35F that we bought used last fall. As part of my beginning of season maintenance I wanted to check the level of the hydraulic fluid for the leveling jacks and slide.

The owners manual says the reservoir is in the compartment behind the front wheel on the drivers side. There's the small compartment that has the 12 volt fuses, then behind that is the regular sized compartment that has what I assume is the electronics for the hydraulic system mounted to the front bulkhead. But I don't see anyting that looks like a reservoir for the hydraulic fluid. Anyoen able to clue me in as to where I should be looking?

Okay. As mentioned, I didn't see it there. What exactly am I looking for?

You will need a funnel. Located behind drivers side tire near Jack. Hard to get in there

Bumping this in the hopes that somebody can tell me exactly what it is I'm looking for.

On my 2017 it's in the first compartment on the driver's side to the left of the 12 volt circuits. As mentioned in previous post it may be behind the compartment. On mine it's a plastic tank like the windshield washer tank but larger.

Mine is located on the driver's side just aft of the propane tank. You'll have to crawl under to see it. Here's a link to HWH's site for my motor home. Yours should be very similar. http://www.hwhcorp.com/mp71071.pdf

Hope all this helps!
Here is an image I pulled for a 2012 Sunstar.
I have a 2016 Sunstar LX35F and my Reservoir is in the Front Bay on drivers side.

I believe this is what you are looking for???

Check your Owners Manual and make sure you use the proper fluid!
I need to use Power Steering Fluid - Type A
