Any decent local hydraulic repair shop specializing in cylinder rebuilding will be happy to rebuild them for you. They are a very simple single acting cylinder without a holding valve. They do require cutting and welding back together as part of the rebuild process however, not a big deal. The internal parts required for rebuild are not proprietary to HWH. I'd suggest a few phone calls to your local hydraulic rebuilders if Stuart's can't help you out.

Getting replacement parts from HWH is hard. I have a leaking seal on one of mine. Ordered a replacement months ago and am still waiting to hear when I might receive one. Guess HWH is more interested in delivering new units to manufacturers then servicing existing customers.

I agree with seeing about a local hydraulic shop. HWH customer service is non-existent. I supposedly got on the call back list in August. Now it is December still no call. First time was told they would call, then it would be 2 weeks, then 3 to 4 weeks. I have contacted them 3 times, no response. Good luck.

PS let us know if HWH ever calls you back.

lots of anti HWH sentiment here

I want to offer a contrary data point...

We've owned our coach a few years now. During that time we have dealt with several RV repair folks. We've had multiple bad experiences, but our visit to HWH was one of the best examples we have had of outstanding service. The only thing I'd rank equal was using Cummins Care in Spokane.

Having been there, I'd cut them a little slack. It's not a huge office running everything. Those folks are busy and work hard.

As some background for why we visited them, we had our left rear jack "repaired" in Spokane, but it still leaked. The Spokane shop didn't want to wait for HWH, so their local 'hydraulics guy' did a repair. That whole fiasco was one of those bad experiences.

Fast forward several months to our visit to HWH. The tech there told me, "most shops can't rebuild our jacks". They didn't even try to repair it, they simply replaced it with an in stock item. We pulled in the evening before appointment and left the next day.

I realize not everyone can go there directly, but if you can, I recommend it.
