One PowerGear jack won't retract-how do I manually override

Last winter I went to retract the jacks, and the rear passenger didn't retract. I figured it was the cold, so I left it until spring. I went to retract it and nothing is happening. I can hear some clicking by the jack pump. The panel shows all jacks retracted.

Here's what I've done:
- checked the fuse at the pump
- checked the fuse at the chassis body
- removed the emergency brake, put my foot on the brake, and put it into drive (nothing happened)
- drained some fluid from the reservoir. Still no lights on panel.

I'm at the stage where I just want to get the jack up and take it in to a shop, but I can't figure out how to manually release the pressure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Details on unit:
2003 Fleetwood Bounder
Powergear control panel model 500456
Pump reservoir has model S200T*4682 on it and part 500507
Part with hoses has part number 500505

Here are pictures. I took the black plastic cap off the the three cylinder things, in the hope that I could release the pressure then, but not sure what to do.

I found the following document:

Based on the pictures, it does not appear that I have a manual override. So how on earth do I relieve the pressure then?

Power Gear is reachable via email. If you email them now , you'll have a response by mid morning. If you do , give them all the info you can including model #'s and those photos. Their address is info@powergearus.com ,
Good luck.

you can slowly loosen the line that goes to that jack, the jack should return by weight and then spring pressure.

You will want a drip pan to catch fluid lost.
