I see the fluid leaking from the cylinder and not a fitting or hose. I have called HWH and the RAP92128 cylinder is on 2 week backorder.
Can these cylinders be repaired or does anyone know a dealer in the US that might have one in stock?
Yes, those cylinders can be serviced/repaired/rebuilt by just about any hydraulic/jack repair service establishment. My bedroom slide in my '04 Horizon 36GD with the C-7 330HP CAT, has two extension cylinders and a balancing/synchronizing cylinder. well, one of the rams started leaking shortly after we purchased the coach, about 4.5 years ago.
I gotta tell ya, pulling that particular ram, was one serious pain in the a$$. But, once it was out, I ran it down to a local jack repair shop and, he had it rebuilt with proper sized O-rings/seals etc. in about 15 minutes. The cost at the time, about $60 total. The cost for a new cylinder/ram from HWH, right at $285.00.
So, not only did I save a bunch of time by doing it the way I did but, I also saved a ton of money too. So, if it were me, I'd yank that syncro cylinder out and , run it down to a hydraulic shop and see what they can do for you. What have you go to loose?
