Help Replacing Jack Motor

I've posted on a problem with my leveling jacks before but I'm advancing to the next stage. I will replace the jack subassembly that is comprised of the motor, the pump, and the reservoir. I will retain the original manifold and bolt it on during installation.

The victim in this case is a 2014 American Coach Revolution. Sometimes I post these inquiries in the Fleetwood group but I went here because there are more people to tap in to. The leveling system is Power Gear which adds a bit to confusion as they don't exist any more and are now serviced by Lippert.

The part I am replacing can be seen at the REV Parts store at this link, https://parts.revgroup.com/item-deta...ganizationId=9.

Let's see if I can get a picture tucked in here.

Now, my question is, when I swap this in and hook it up will I need to bleed the system and rezero the jacks? If I do need to do either of those things, does anybody have any input as to how? I've got some pdf's from the Lippert site regarding the Power Gear system but they don't seem to address these specific issues.

Thank you in advance for any constructive comment.

Jacks with springs don't need bleeding . Do they have springs.

My jacks have no visible springs. I suppose that there could be something internally but I'll not speculate... They are hydraulic down and up and I hope that for safety reasons up is their preferred natural state.

No internal springs. They say because the hose in on the top air will work it way out of the tops while lowering with spring ones should be same with two hose . Your not adding an empty cylinders and hoses that are full of air. Actually as you raise the coach it should push the air out of the hoses at bottom hose/retract side because the cylinder is full of fluid. I just hadn't thought about it.
