Hwh slide room seal leaking

Iíve had a bit of hydraulic fluid on the rear cylinder on the front slide driverís side. I added a couple qts of hwh fluid to top off the reservoir. Now itís dripping out the passenger side inside the bay. Anything I can do? Itís going to be summer before I can get to Iowa. Click image for larger version

IDo you know if leak is internal to the ram or just the hose connections? If internal--that's a bigger deal--will probably need to remove cylinder from slide tube. Hose connection leaks usually require entire hose be replace--not easy either. Some RV shops will do HWH work too but like the hoses, HWH cylinders are somewhat proprietary and may not be repairable in the field. Look for AZPete [Paul Maddox] on the forum--he doesn't advertise but is a qualified HWH tech.....

I would get it fixed before extending the slide. If the hose blows it will be a mess and getting the slide back in is not fun.

If not the hose connection, unless the other end of the ram is accessible [unlikely], you will have to extend the slide to remove the cylinder from inside the slide tube--mess or not......
