Changing out a Hydraulic Powerpack

The cost of replacing my made in China electric motor doesn't make any sense, $732.00 close to $1000 by the time it gets to my door, from Lippert. I'm thinking that if I can't get the motor re-wound I would just replace the whole power pack. I can get a made in Korea unit for $270. I've tried to get information from the OEM but it seems the hydraulic world is tight lipped, and therefore I don't know anything about sizes, power output etc. As mentioned, I've seen other units that look to be similar, but how do I compare apples to apples.
Anybody know what to watch out for?

As always thanks for your input.

I would remove the motor itself, and take that to somebody doing automotive starter rebuilds. I've had them repaired pretty cheap using over the counter parts (known only to those that use them!).

Thanks, yes thats the stage I'm at now. I dropped it off at a winding shop this afternoon. The fella is going to get back to me on wither or not he can rebuild it. If he can, Great!, if not I'm thinking replace the whole power pack. The fly in the ointment right now, as I see it, is the motor is full of hydraulic oil, but I'm thinking that should be able to be cleaned up easy enough, but I don't know the effects of hydraulic oil in places where it doesn't belong. Having said that, it is just oil.

Happy Days!
I called Lippert this morning and yes indeed I do qualify for the recall. The New Motor and coupler is on it's way.

deSanford, THANK YOU so much for the heads up on this.

I Love Love Love this site!
