HWH slide out ram question
I'm relatively new to RVing and I'm hoping that someone can help answer a question for me. I have a 2002 Rexhall Vision class A. The hydraulic ram that opertes my slide is leaking a little hydraulic fluid when I operate it and I would like to replace it. The manufacturer is HWH and the part number is AP-14368. Our local RV repair shops tell me that HWH has no projected ETA for when they might have a replacement cylinder. I would like to take a trip but I want to replace the ram before I go. Does anyone know if this part is interchangable with a similar HWH ram and how I would find out which ones I might be able to substitute? I asume that the cylinder is not rebuildable as it apears to be a sealed unit. I did leave a message at HWH to have a parts rep. call me but I was told that it could take a few days to get a reply.
Thank you to anyone with any advice you might be able to provide me.
