Slideout Inop plus Hot Water Tank Leak

When it rains, it pours bad luck.

When we arrived back at our summer site we were unable to put out the main slideout and hydraulic fluid gushed to the ground. The rear slideout worked fine. The main is now extended approx 2-3" but won't budge. In addition, we have developed a heavy leak (approx 10 gallons per day) that seems to be coming from the back of the hot water heater where we can't reach. We tightened all the connections we could reach but that didn't make any difference. It is soaking the compartment next to it that contains the tubing and water pump, none of which show any signs of damage. The heater is an Atwood LP/electric heater.

We have an appointment to take it to be evaluated and parts ordered on Wed but in the meantime it is VERY tight in the front for two people and two dogs. Any ideas regarding the hot water heater? I'm also hoping that come Wed I'll have enough hydraulic fluid to close the back slideout.
