Level Up Cylinder Leaking By

I think someone must have had to repair or replace their level up lift jack cylinder...............are they repairable or do they need to be replaced? The driver side front cylinder is slowly leaking by the internals and dropping the front driver side in storage. It still provides plenty of lift, though.

Find your local hydraulic repair shop or tractor/equipment shop, they should be able to rebuild it for a fraction of the cost of replacement.
If you been stationary for a while I found by extend/retract a couple times would stop the leaking. Be sure to wipe them down with a silicone spray lube regularly before retracting them also prevents this.

On my "16" I had small leakage on 1 shaft as well. I did what Danny said,

I coated it with silicone spray and wiped it making sure it was completely covered, then I would retract and extend s few times.

This stopped the leak and it did not come back... They said sometimes you can get a microscopic size of debris stuck at the wiper seal, and or the O ring got bit dried out...

Whatever it was, it stopped it.

Leaking levelling jacks

Hi
We have the 36RE Redwood and jacks have to be replaced they canít be repaired.
We have done 4 of 5 already, if they were repairable then a dealer would go that way if under warranty.

If under warranty, let the Dealer replace them, if out of warranty they can be rebuilt by a good Hydraulic Shop.

Ditto! For a fraction of the price of new.
The dealerships will not rebuild anything under warranty, too much time involved, they will only replace.
And to be honest with the majority of dealerships I don't want anything they've rebuilt, I'll take new.
