The battery compartment is the forward facing door under the overhang just in back of the pinbox. The batteries should be on the right side as you are looking into the compartment.

And the hydraulic unit and tank should be just above them on the side wall.

DO NOT use ATF Type F fluid. Type F ATF is not compatible with LCI hydraulic system seals. Seals will not work properly.
The following automatic transmission fluid (ATF) recommendations for use in Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI) hydraulic systems are based upon hydraulic system operation in various environmental air temperatures.
1. Operation at air temperatures routinely above 0 °C (32 °F)—above freezing—which also covers most
initial OEM fills.
A. DexronŽ III/MerconŽ ATF
B. MerconŽ V ATF
C. DexronŽ VI ATF
D. PetroBlend (Mason City, IA) PHO 0022S (synthetic group 3 base blend)
E. Bellman all temp 22 (Bremen, IN)
F. Or any ATF or hydraulic fluid with a pour point lower than -42 °C (-44 °F).
2. Operation at air temperatures routinely below 0 °C (32 °F)—below freezing.
A. Mobil 1TM full synthetic ATF
B. Royal PurpleŽ full synthetic ATF
C. ValvolineTM full synthetic ATF
D. AmsoilŽ full synthetic ATF
E. PetroBlend (Mason City, IA) PHO 0022S (synthetic group 3 base blend)
F. Bellman all temp 22 (Bremen, IN)
G. Or any ATF or hydraulic fluid with a pour point lower than -45 °C (-45 °F).
H. Multivis (all temperature) ISO 22 hydraulic fluid
I. Or any ATF or hydraulic fluid (conventional or synthetic) with a pour point lower than -46 °C (-50 °F).
3. Operation at air temperatures routinely below -18 °C (0 °F)—extreme cold.
A. KendallŽ Hyken Glacial Blu
B. Benz oil (Milwaukee, WI) Flomite 530
C. Or any conventional or synthetic ATF or hydraulic fluid with a pour point less than -57 °C (-70 °F) and viscosity less than 2850 cP (3282 cSt) @ -40 °C (-40 °F ).

And, don't add hydraulic fluid with the legs or slides out, or you will have a mess.

You can also add 15w motorcycle fork oil (anti suction oil) to the reservoir. RW factory techs replaced/added a quart, Maxima Fork oil, to mine to stop the popping/creaking of the jacks while parked.
As Brad said, ALL slides/jacks retracted before adding & fill to 1/4-1/2" of the fill opening.

Actually it is anti-stiction fluid. See the attached LIPP sheet by Lippert for more details.

We love the Depoe Bay, OR area. Last summer we stayed for a week in the Chinook Bend RV Resort, not far from there in our Redwood. Didn't know finding a service tech in the area was hard to find. Thankfully at the time we weren't having problems.
