Hyd leak

On the road and sprung a leak in the power gear Hyd tank, I drained the tank and looks like its leaking at a weld. Going to wait till I get home to fix it. My question in will the jacks stay up and not creep down. I'am thinking there is a inner spring to hold it up, but not sure, anyone know for sure.

There are springs that return them into stow mode and I can't imagine them not holding the jacks up, but I don't want to tell u for sure. I guess as a safety precaution you could crawl under and put some cheap ratchet straps on. Good luck and hope someone can verify for sure.

If there is an EXTERNAL spring that should hold the jack up... If the "retract spring" is internal, there will be ONE hyd. hose going to the top of the cylinder - - If there are two hyd. lines connected to each cylinder, you've got problems.
Suggest you look at the Power Gear web site and contact them with questions..
