Slide cylinder leak

The first issue on my new to me 36RL. The forward kitchen side slide has a blown O ring. Has any replaced this or had it repaired? I called RW and Tiara to find a replacement and did not get a definitive answer on the correct part number. Called LCI and the phones were not working.

Depending on cost, it might be better to replace the jack???

My jack was dripping on the end of the ram and accumulated about half gallon + of hydraulic fluid onto the insulation and belly pan before it began to drip onto the ground where I could notice it.

I usually fix everything myself, but this looked like a huge job and what a mess inside! To add to difficulty, the screws holding the front of the rear belly pan are installed from the top so no access from underneath... duh!. Also have to take the disc brake lines and spare tire bracket off (among other things) to get belly pan off in the jack area. Then picture cleaning 8x20' of oil soaked foil insulation and belly pan. You get the picture...

Finally, I gave up on "self service" and expected to lose the RL the rest of the summer sitting at the dealer. Rather than repair, Redwood replaced the ram under warranty. Must have been slow at the dealer because I had the RL back in 2 days.

I want to replace the entire piston/cylinder assembly, I just need to know what model number. It does not make sense to me that Redwood would not know what they use.

Speaking of the cylinders I noticed that LCI seems to color code them but have not seen any information on what the colors mean.

I didn't know that. If I remember correctly, I think mine was red.
