Problems with Bigfoot leveling system

We have recently had to replace both rear tank assemblies and cylinders due to water entering the system causing the rear jacks to malfunction. Previously, Quadra personnel in Michigan drained and cleaned both reservoirs of contaminated water in the fluid. They also replaced both vented fill caps. After one week the same problem reoccured. Any suggestions on how we can keep water from entering the system? Jim (at Quadra) suggested placing the rear pumps in the front compartment and running new hoses to the rear jacks. We live in California and the previous repairs have already cost us nearly $2000.

If they arent driving in the rain, then where is the water coming from?
No way water can get in while setting still. Unless a pressure washer is used or high pressure water hose? If the tank is filled to the proper level, I doubt condensation.

ps: it would be a shorter run to put the pumps in the rear compartment.

Forgot to mention that we are traveling across country. Currently in Maine, and yes, we do have to drive in the rain sometimes
