Need help from f250 crowd

I'm out of town and my power steering went out. Brake are hard too. Can someone guide me on what it might be. Power steering fluid smells like burnt rubber. I have an 08 f250 4x2. Any suggestions would be welcomed. Does anyone know I the warranty covers what might be wrong. I'm thinking its the power steering pump. But don't know where it's located. Help help help

Try flushing the power steering fluid first. Flush it with mobile 1 ATF. I would take a picture of where the nipple is to flush the system but I drove my bike today. Hopefully someone will chime in.
