Hydraulic fluid leak

On my 2018 Phaeton I am having a hydraulic fluid leak which i cannot find the source. It appears to be around the passenger side front jack. It showed up once and then stopped. I had the techs at red bay look at it, but they could not find anything wrong. When we got back home it showed up again. I decided to check the fluid level and found it did not register on the dip stick. I added 2 quarts of fluid before it finally registered on the dip stick. A much larger pool of fluid appeared under the jack foot a few hours later. It now appears that the leak may be coming from the center of the jack piston. When I raised the jacks again there was a pool of fluid directly under the jack foot.

There are 10 types of people... Those that understand binary and those that don't.

Sounds like you need a new jack. Since you are under warranty call Tiffin Service and have them send you a new one. Or take the coach back to your dealer for repair. Tiffin will also work with mobile repair services if you want to go that way. It all starts with a call.
