We have 36 rl, we are on a leveled ground, but anyway we have to re-level every 10 to 15 days. It does not matter what temps are outside, or how many people are in house, it looks to me that the jacks leak even tho there is no "oil stains" on jacks. Does anyone else experience this phenomena?

We have a 2011 36rl, we had to re-level every 20 to 25 days. I found out that if you spray silicone on the jacks and recycle them that will help,It has been a year and we have not had to re-level. We are full time and move every 3 to 4 months. When we move before I bring up the jacks I spray them with silicone

The landing gear struts on aircraft are chromed and then honed to size and they still leak from time to time it's just the nature of the beastEdited by: Beechguyjim

The hydraulic fluid could be leaking past a valve and back into the reservoir. I doubt the level in the tank would change enough to notice but you could try leveling the rig then placing a strip of masking tape on the reservoir and marking the fluid level. The next time you feel you need to re-level the rig check the fluid level to see if it's risen above the mark on the tape.
