Location of Reservoir for Hydraulic Jacks

We have a 2013 Itasca Meridian 40U and were wondering if anyone knows where the reservoir for the hydraulic jacks is. The book says it's under the front stairs, but it is not. Thank you.

Thank you for the diagram. We got under the coach and found the reservoir. It's directly under the steps and there is no room to fill it from underneath. The steps are bolted down and don't lift up easily. Took a flashlight and determined that the reservoir is absolutely full with the jacks retracted. Sure seems like it's not very serviceable friendly. The steps have one bolt underneath the edge and since it's full we're leaving it alone for now.

I think you'll find that both of the top two steps will hinge up for access once you unscrew the single nut on a stud just under the lip of the steps, right in the center.

The diagram Richard provided is great and, yes, the steps hing up when you remove the nut from under the front center of the steps. The top step is where you gain access to the reservoir fill cap.

Your welcome.

Before you add Dexron 3 to the tank, read the instructions in the HWH section of your owners manuals. There is a right and a wrong way to have your slides positioned. The HWH owners manual has this information for you.
