HWH slideout/leveling jack issues

Help! Just came back home (CA) from an 8000 mile 10 1/2 week trip and have had nothing but issues with my 2008, Winnebago Adventurer, 8.1 liter eng, 24k workhorse chassis.
Connector blew off a HWH high pressure hydraulic hose in Tulsa, OK over the weekend. Jacks down, slides out, would not retract and hydraulic fluid pouring out the hose. Was able to get the hose recrimped, filled the reservoir with trans fluid and limped into HWH in Moscow, one day ahead of scheduled appointment. Because of a conflict wasn't able to get serviced, bought two new hoses and had them put on in Euclid, OH. Unable to use slides/jacks from Tulsa to Cleveland. (Fun with two grandkids aboard). The fix in OH lasted until going home near Shreveport, LA. Jacks down slides out, and hyd fluid pouring out of a solenoid. Drove 1800 miles back to HWH where the tech said some epoxy had blown out the rear of a retract solenoid and two wires had been broken off a solenoid. Fixed, I thought.
Started home and got to Elk City, OK when jacks down, slides out, and hyd fluid leaking out one end of the syncronizing cylinder. Was able to push main slide in with help and limped home with the main slide out about 4-5 inches at bottom. Top is ok . So where can I get this thing fixed without going back to Moscow which is about 3000 miles round trip?
