Leveling jacks

I have a 2005 HR Ambassador RVA leveling jacks.

The jacks do not maintain the original setting, they settle. One time it may be the front jack, another time one of the rear jacks.

There are no visible fluid leaks.

The RVA web site suggests the problem is caused by the retract valve (stem).

It seems that the same jack would settle each time if that were the problem.

I have followed the directions for bleeding air out of the system.

Does anyone know if these type of valves can be obtained at a hydraulics shop?

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Specks of dirt in the fluid can cause intermittent jack "leak down" on any of the 3 individual RVA jacks.
Running each individual jack up manualy, (and/or simply lossening and re-tightening the manual valves), may cure the problem.
It did mine.
