HWH 16K Kick Down Jack


I have a '94 Holiday Rambler Navigator (38' DP) with the HWH 610 computerized leveling system, 9k kick down jacks in front & 16k kick down jacks in the rear (AP8525). My right rear jack is leaking. An inspection revealed that the leak is from the kick down actuator; oil is leaking out past the adjustment cap on the bottom.

I've searched all over the HWH web site and cannot find a parts break down of the actuator, so I am assuming no internal parts are available and the actuator is replaced as an assembly (at great expense). I'm writing to see if anyone has disassembled an actuator and has knowledge of how the adjustment cap is sealed. I'm hoping I can remove the cap & replace a leaky o-ring to fix the leak. If not, can the actuator be replaced successfully without removing the jack assembly from the chassis. It looks as though it could be done - any advice appreciated.

I've read several threads about people having problems with parts for HWH and my nephew had an issue, he finally took his leaking down jack off, and found a commercial hydraulic shop who was able to dissemble, repair and reassemble for him.... for a fraction of the price...

Also in Coeur d'Alene ID is a place called Erickson RV... they specialize in buying totals.... taking them apart and selling good useable parts and pieces... I've shopped them several times with good results...

Hope this helps...
