Sorry, I can't speak for the Newmar, but when the left rear jack on my Discovery started leaking, the only way I could get it out was with a gas axe. Replacing it was a real treat too, luckly, I had a air operated ratchet to put it back together. It was quite a job, but not impossible.

use a 5/8 crows foot wrench. that fitting is one you may be able to see it or touch it, but you cant do both.

"gas axe" is welder slang for a cutting torch.
A highly skilled pro wielding a gas axe can cut the heads right off the bolts without even getting anything else hot.
