Default New owner here 2002 Sun Voyager

Has anybody ever repaired a leaking cylinder seal on the hydraulic jack? I can retract them, but in a few minutes the 2 front jacks have started to extend, the 2 rear are fine but I can see hydraulic fluid on top of one of the front pads. I think it's a seal that leaks from the one jack and because the 2 front jacks can raise and lower simultaneously, they both creep down.

Of that vintage, you need to identify brand/ model and (hope) repair kits still available and not "obsolete"; otherwise, believe I read other owners finding new cylinders about $600/each Parts ONLY?

Default hydraulic shop

Hi, I had the exact same issue. You can remove the cylinders and look for a hydraulic repair shop. The seals are not available at an RV repair shop, but a good shop will find replacement seals for you. With labour you should be around 200 each cylinder. Cheapest option. New cylinders if you can even find the same model are 600 to 800 each with no fittings

That is an insane price for a replacement, but I did get it off and repaired for $200.
