Can someone tell me how/where to check the power steering fluid levels? I can't find the dipstick anywhere. My coach is a 2003 Fleetwood Excursion 38' powered with a Caterpillar 3126. 

 

My books on the coach tell me to check the fluid levels but does not show where. I have checked all my compartments and have found all other dipsticks - but none for the power steering.

 

Is it under the floor in the bedroom closet?

 

Any help would be deeply appreciated. :rolleyes:

Retiredhfd,

 

Welcome to the FMCA Forum.

 

Your chassis maker specs and installs the power steering system. What chassis do you have?

I actually realized that I have been looking at the power steering reservoir the whole time and didn't realize what I was looking at. It is not marked as power steering reservoir and has no dipstick ( it has fill/add lines on the side of the plastic reservoir) - but it does say use Dextron III fluid. So problem solved.
