Leaking Lippert Jack reservoir drain plug
Getting the coach ready for travel season, I found a slow leak that developed over the winter while the coach was stored. I have the Powergear four jack system powered by a Lippert Hydraulic pump with the plastic tank. I traced the leak to the drain plug on the lower edge of the side of the tank, on the opposite end from the motor/pump. The tank is plastic, the drain is a steel fitting consisting of what appears to be either a reducing bushing or bulkhead fitting threaded into the tank. A pipe plug is then threaded into the bushing. The leak is coming from the reducing bushing where it threads into the tank, it is not coming from the pipe plug. I was able to snug the fitting a little, but was very cautoius since it is plastic and has a gallon or two of Dexron 3 in it!
Has anyone had one of these apart? Is the fitting threaded into the reservoir or is it a two piece fitting that had another threaded part inside the tank? What thread sealer is used?
Thanks for any help you can offer.
