Purging power steering and brakes Cass Jasso 12-18-12  
Could someone tell me how to purge the power steering and brakes on a 1993 bounder MH (p30)?
Where is the master cylinder located?

The power steering pump powered hydraulic boost system can be a pain but basically, fill the resivour, put on cap, run engine for probably a few seconds the first and second times, top it up after the foam goes away.

Then let it idle and keep topping it up until the foam in the tank is gone, step on the brakes, turn the steering from lock to lock, top up repeat.

Once it seems to be good, put the lid on and then shut it off.

If the cap blows oil, it wasn't purged, start over.

The master cylinder can be under the floor, under the dash or inside the "Hood" in direct line with the brake peddle.
