Fluid for hydraulic jacks?


Recommended Posts

My manual does not tell me what kind of fluid to put in the reservoir and nobody I talk to seems to know...do you?

Wondering what make your jacks are, and do you mean the manual for the motorhome or the one for the jacks that is published by the jack manufacturer? If you need a copy of the one from the manufacturer, many of the companies have those available online.

The Lippert products all call for ATF, but specifically say to not use Type F, as it will cause seal failure. One thing to understand is, ATF is hydraulic fluid, it just has a dye in it and special additives to help it work in transmissions.

The storage tank sometimes has that info cast or labeled on it. As others said, find the manufacturer and look up on the net. Failing ALL that post a picture of the leg or pump unit here and someone will recognize it I'm sure.
