Leaking front leveling jack

I went out this morning to move our old RV because we are picking up our new one this morning and Percy (Our Pace Arrow) decided to throw a temper tantrum. There is a puddle of pink/red hydrolic fluid underneath the front jack. So now the jacks won't register as up so I can move the RV. I need to know how to get this thing moving so I can take it someplace to sell.

Thoughts? Jacks are in the up position now, but it isn't registering as up.

Did you make sure that the fluid level is at the full mark?

If they are power gear jacks, then more fluid into the tank should get you going. I don't know about other brands of jacks.

Transmission Oil, usually Dextron III, but read on the side of the tank to see what type of oil yours requires. If you need to rebuild the jacks, your local Hyd ram cylinder rebuilders can do it.
