If thatís the case I would try stop leak first. The stop leak rejuvenates the seals and makes them swell a little bit.
My first attempt to slow the leak was to try a stop leak product. Maybe just a coincidence but the leak got worse. Also, the other three jacks began leaking fairly soon (within a year) afterwards.

Some seals don't care for stop leak, maybe yours are one of those types.

I'd bet AZPete would know. If you have a HWH system.

Working for me for 6 years so far and worked for 12 with my Power Gear.

Thanks for some great replies. I'll find a hydraulic repair shop and see what they can do for me. I'll keep you posted.

Sorry about that. The pervious reply has pictures of my dismantled leveling jacks but, no text. The construction is quite simple. The lower picture is the bottom cap where the piston exits. This is where there was a small leak. If I can get a new lower cap and seals, this should be a DIY repair job. I called Lippert in an attempt to get repair parts. The rep I talked to said these jacks are made by Lippert in Elkhart, Indiana so the parts are readily available, but they won't sell any repair parts to me. They should be ashamed.

Wish mine were a similar style. Unfortunately, the jacks on ours are welded and can't be easily taken apart. To repair involves cutting then open, rebuilding, and then welding back together,, something that I can't do myself.

I hope you're able to get the parts.
