Question Power Gear leveling system

I have a 2002 Holiday Rambler Septer, Model 40 BPD. On a recent trip my leveling jacks acted up and upon checking the fluid level found it was almost empty. Began searching for leaks and found one of the hydraulic lines to the front jacks was in fact leaking slowly under pressure. The leak is isolated to an area up above the fuel tank. My question is has anyone had a similar problem and is there a fix without taking the fuel tank out to access the line?

Thanks for any similar experiences and suggestions.

First thing to do is check to make sure the fitting going into the cylinder itself is tight and also the hose is tight to the fitting. The fitting going into the cylinder my have an O-ring that could be causing your problem.

If those don't cure the problem it could be the hose itself.

Road...make sure you're checking fluid level with jacks retracted. When extended most of the fluid is in the legs. Just sayin....I'd be surprised to learn that the jacks worked at all if reservoir was very low.
