THOR #18751
LCI Hydraulic Leveler Reservoir

Hi Everyone, I had an issue (moved back and forth and side to side and couldn’t get it level) on Nov. 22 trying to auto level my Magnitude SV34(no issues since I bought it new in Mar 2020). I then tried to manually level for the first time which was also a challenge. Needless to say I moved to another completely different site and was able to auto level on the first try.

It brought me to the wonder about the LCI levelers, which I researched in the Thor Manual and Owners Resource. I now know that the levelers need periodic maintenance. My question is where is the reservoir to check the level and whether I need to add or change out the Dexron III/Mercon V transmission fluid?? I cannot find for the life of me where this may be located.

The reservoir will be attached to the pump, apparently, right next to the propane tank. Change the fluid according to the maintenance schedule posted in the owners manual. Check level with jacks fully retracted.

Thank you Harry. I checked in the propane bin and the pump and reservoir was right there, it could have bit me.

Thanks for your help.

As mentioned only add oil to top off reservoir with all the jacks retracted otherwise you'll overfill creating a mess. Fill to within 1/4-1/2" of the opening.
Also if having issues leveling you may need to recalibrate the system, find that sequence in the manual, manually level the coach to your liking then recalibrate, this should then level that way every time you hit "auto level".
