The hose could be clogged ! Do you know where you add the washer fluid ? Somewhere on the bottom of that plastic bottle is the washer pump .

I worked on a 1999 Suburban a couple weeks ago, it had good fuel pressure and spark but wouldn't run. No check engine light. It turned out the catalytic converters were plugged. After I took the exhaust pipes loose at the manifold it started right up. Just a thought.
This sounds like you have a broken break line, a leaking wheel cylinder or a leaking master cylinder. The small reservoir is for the rear breaks. I would recommend getting it fixed before you continue your trip. If the leak is not repaired, you may do damage to the anti-lock breaking system ( if equipped) as well as other break components. If you get into a position of having to rely on the breaks they may fail completely and cause an accident.
Most of them push in. It sounds as if the reservoir may have a hole or crack in it. If you replace this always use a new one not used. A used one could be contaminated and cause more problems than it repairs.
