I need to fill up the hydraulic oil on my 2000 Chieftain and apparently, my owners manual doesn't:
(A) Tell me which type of oil to use &
(B) Which valve controls which jack.
The Winnebago tech on the phone said that each valve is labeled which they are, but everything is faded and I can't read it.
I'm kind of stuck because I can't get my passenger rear jack to move and the "jacks down" alert are constantly sounding. The reservoir is a little low on oil so I'm hoping that filling it up will get it moving.
2000 Winnebago Chieftain 36W. Old to the world, new to us.
The HWH system in my MH calls in type A transmission fluid, however different systems and years call in different fluids.Contact HWH, they are the authority.
If the sytem is low on fluid, after you add to the full mark, cycle the jacks 6-7 times to purge any air from the system, that's the only method. Check fluid with jacks fully retracted/stored, the hyd slides do not matter as they are double-acting cylinders-fluid on both sides of the piston.
