Brake Fluid Reservior

Hi folks: I've owned a 2002 26' LY for a year. It's a P32 Workhorse chassis. One thing I can't find is the reservior for the brake fluid. The GM/ Workhorse dealer merely said it was under the hood when I asked. Anybody know where it is?
Thanks, Donald

Welcome to the forums.
The reason they were vague is because it probably has a remote reservoir, that is, it is not mounted on the master cylinder.
Take a look at the master cylinder, and follow the fill hoses up to the reservoir.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

As a general rule the reserve is mounted on top of the master cylinder. On the engine side of the fire wall look just above were the brake pedal would line up. It will most likely be a white plastic housing with a black metal top about 2 by 5 in.

I have a 83 classic MH and the brake fluid reservoir was well hidden on it. Last summer we had a brake line break on the front driver side wheel. After replacing broken line, I had to refill with brake fluid. It was behind the frame and only accessible from inside the front driver side wheel well. Needless to say I needed to be a contortionist to fill with fluid.
I hope that yours is not hidden nearly as well.
