Hydraulic cylinder leak

I have a 1999 Affinity with one slide (living room). The forward hydraulic cylinder has a small hydraulic leak and the slide room operation is becoming erratic. One end leads the other and it doesnít always seal in the open position.

Has anyone removed these cylinders and rebuilt them? Is there a service manual or repair manual available?
Does anyone know the cylinder part number from HWH?
Are there rebuild kits available?
Also wanting to know the same info on the equalization cylinder.

Jim, here's a link to some of my experiences. I probably have more pictures somewhere if needed, but the HWH manuals on their website were pretty good I think.

I got home from Colorado this afternoon and pulled the forward slide cylinder out in about 15 minutes. It is not clear how to disassemble the cylinder, though. The shaft seal is obviously torn. Iím calling HWH in the morning but not hopeful they will help short of sending this 5 foot long cylinder to them for rebuild. Iím hoping to get back on the road in 3 weeks. Iíve rebuilt fork lift cylinders and they were easy to work on.

Hey Jim, Iíd like to hear how your call to HWH went! Iíve been without my front (kitchen/living room) slide for a month now. My issue is with my $1600 synchronizing cylinder. HWH will not rebuild it, they donít have one in stock and canít tell me when they will build a new one! Also ordered new solenoids with the same response! Iíve called from here (AZ) to the east coast looking for a used one with no luck!

Any competent hydraulic shop can rebuild the cylinder.

My HWH appointment went great. I had an 8:00am appointment and was driving out around 4:00pm. The rebuilt the rear cylinder and the synchronizing cylinder and replaced a $200 solenoid valve that holds the room in the out position. Filled, bled and tested the system. Working great!
The total bill was $513. Great deal in my opinion.

East Valley RV in Mesa AZ told me they put in a new ram a few years ago. Iím assuming that is the same thing as a hydraulic cylinder we are currently discussing here. Please tell me if I am wrong. They charged me $1,400. If it is the same thing, you got a smoking deal going to HWH.

Iím thinking my synchronizing cylinder is not the same as Jimís cylinder! Mine is a 4 station cylinder that controls the 4 rams for my slide. That cylinder is $1600 at HWH and is not serviceable (according to them) I am at their mercy

That one is definitely different than mine. I only have one slide.

HWH told me that if I sent them in for rebuild, that was done in their production shop and subject to long lead times. When I brought the coach to them the work was done in the service shop, a separate facility. You might ask the service shop if they will rebuild it if you brought the coach to Iowa.

Make sure you look very carefully at your cylinder. I had what I thought was a leak in the end of my equalizer and it turned out to be one of the quick disconnect hydraulic fittings. A quick trip to the local hydraulic supply house and $30 later, I was back in business with No More leak!
