How often if at all do you change the hydro fluid on your trailer? What type is needed?

Never, mine uses automatic transmission fluid. It's going on 5 years old, and I've never changed it.

If the system is tight, and the fluid stays clean, there's not much need to change the oil. Heat and dirt are what makes hydraulic oil need to be changed.
