HWH leveling jack re-build

Finally got my rear leaking HWH jacks repaired. Could not get either re-built or new ones from HWH. Did the fronts last year and HWH did them and returned them in two weeks but now the supply chain issues has them so behind they could not give me an estimate on when they would be able to re-build them or even get them back to me or even have new ones for purchase.
If you need leaking jacks repaired check out P and H Hydraulics in Jacksonville Florida. I had Ring Power take them out because they have a lift and getting the back ones out is like wrestling with an alligator -best left to a professional.
Brought them to P and H and they had them done in a week. Highly recommend them. Jacks have never worked this well. We were so tired of waking in the morning and feel like we were sleeping in the leaning tower of Pisa as the jacks would level but leak over night from the bottom seals.

Thanks for the tip. Used to be a guy on eBay selling rebuilt jacks but wasn't able to find him lately.

It's getting time. Already fried one solenoid

jack solenoids

your welcome. Don't know anything about solenoids. Why do you think they are failing?
If you do use P and H, ask for Jared. Very diligent.
If you have to take out the rear jacks, I had Ring Power, a CAT dealer, take them out.

Another vote for Jared at P and H. Took my stuck jack in and exactly one week later he called to pick it up. This was the exact day he predicted he would have it done. He told me he had been pretty busy on HWH jacks and I can believe that. My jack is 19 years old and did not leak but moaned when going down and the springs could not lift it back.

Here are two "after" photos and his work looks great, especially considering what he had to work on.

Another vote for P&H. They repaired a leaking jack for my son several years ago. We couldn't even figure how to get it apart but they did a great repair in a very short time.
I have several pieces of Hydraulic equipment at my shop and P&H does all our repairs and never a issue with their quality.
