Leveller corroded and stuck in place

2008 Class A gas Four Winds Windsport 34Y Toy Hauler (Thor)
I took in for repair because the one jack was not fully
retracting for me. I believe it is hydraulic..

The RV repair place found that one of the wires was loose and fixed it,
but also said that the one jack is totally rusted and corroded
into place and they could not budge it.

THey could not find the parts number for replacement
and said that a new part could run $1000.00 and then
a lot of labour cost above that because it would take a lot
of work to remove the old one.

They suggested I just not use the levellers.
I only camp weekends right now and mostly level ground
I need my sides extended to use the couch bed…

Should I be worried about not being completely level when extending sides ?

I"m going to call Thor and find out the parts number and how much for new
part…but where/what type of place, is the best place to go to get the old one removed and replaced cause my repair place (near Niagara Falls) didn't seem
interested in attempting this.

Thanks in advance…

Mine were running slow and RV repair place told me to spray silicon, soak and then wipe off. Worked like a charm!

Your area Thor dealership is the place to begin. Unless that hyd. jack is so rusted the cylinder and/or piston is pitted, it can be repaired/rebuilt by any competent hydraulic repair shop. Your MH manuals will contain the brand and type of the jacks.
