Hydraulic synchronization cylinder leak

Can anyone help me with this issue?
I discovered a slow drip of red fluid and traced it to the hydraulic synchronization cylinder. This is in the front passenger-side basement compartment of our 40' MDTS.

The first two images are my unit. The third image I found online; it's exactly like mine.

A new cylinder would be about $200. Would rather repair than replace.

Is this a DIY fix, take it someplace fix (where?) or mobile repair? How would you approach it? How much time do you think I have before it causes a problem? Click image for larger version

If you have a hyd cylinder repair shop in your area, the most economical repair would be to take it to the shop. It appears to be a small cyl which should be
a DIY project. My thoughts

Are the seals on the cylinder leaking or is it the connectors?
