Hydraulic Jack Alternative

We bought a 2004 Winnebago Sightseer 27C about three years ago. This was our first class A. The dealer told us that it did not have hydraulic leveling. I assumed it never had it. Upon further investigation I found that it used to have them but they had been taken off. The only thing that remains are the pump and the lines to the cylinders. Upon researching what it would take to right this wrong I found it to be quite the expensive task. The 27C is the lightest in its class and with that being said I was looking into Fifth Wheel electric jacks as an alternative. They are much less expensive as the replacement hydraulic parts or entire systems. Anyone ever seen or installed anything close to what I am thinking about doing?

Are you looking for an automatic system or a cheap way to get level? Are the valves there? Have you tried the pump to see if it works and will build pressure?

Nothing but pump and lines

I have no way of testing the pump. The wiring has been removed along with the controller. The lines were removed from the jacks and were not capped. Just hanging there close to where they were connected. I was just wondering if I could use the electric jacks instead due to the enormous cost of replacing the system. I can wire them individually or to a panel inside the RV.
