HWH slideout seal repair

Good morning Phriends,

I have 34', ClassA, Winnie... and the slideout hydraulic line blew a seal. I have already pulled out the piston cylinder from the leg (ram). (I can give details on how to do this if anyone wants them). After taking the cylinder apart, I can easily see that the seals have failed and they need replaced.

Where can I buy replacment seals for a HWH piston cylinder on my slideout???

I am on the HWH callback list, and I am still waiting for a callback from last week. But I read somewhere that HWH does not sell replacement seals. Is this true? Is there anyone else that can sell me the 2 rubber rings that I need.

I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a new cylinder, when I just need new seals.

Thank you in advance, I love this forum and all of the help that everyone gives eachother.

Check yellow pages for a local hydraulic repair shop.

Agree with above.. Or call a shop that deals with Bobcat / Skidsteer / Tractors - they'll refer you.

any convenient hydro shop. Just bring old "O" rings and seals and they will match up. Check connecting rod for nicks or burrs that could have damaged seal and sand with emery paper before reassembly. you can use vasiline as an assembly lube.

Problem Solved!

Thank you for the support. The drawing that someone sent me is what really helped me out the most.

The repair was actually easier than expected. Only a few nuts and bolts to remove the cylinder and pull it out.

I bought the new seals from Zatkoff in Toledo, OH for $10!!! Same size and shape (i checked with a micrometer). Replaced 3 seals and put it back together. (Better than $250 for sent in repair, or $400 for new)

I ran the jacks and slideout back and forth, slowly, a few times and refilled the hydraulic oil each time. Good as new again!

Very pleased with Winnebago headquarters help. Over the phone, they helped me find the cylinoids and turn them open and closed, in order to manually move the slideout in and out.

As far as HWH... I am still waiting for my call back from them. Rather disappointed with their help.

Thanks again, I hope to see ya'll on the road sometime.
