Angry Another hydraulic leak

Well just picked up my Georgetown for a trip and noticed a puddle underneather the rig near the steps.
Well, It looks like a slow leak between the holding tank and valve body.
The level didn't go down much but I called Lippert and spoke to Don and he knew I was over the one year warranty but I told him to look over my records and see how many time I had it in the shop for hydraulic hose bursting and other leaks.

He was nice and said even though it wa sover a year they wouldn't leave me out to dry. So he wrote a note and gave me a reference number and told me to take it to a local RV dealer to have it checked and documented. They will contact Lippert for what parts are needed.

It looks like it is the output shaft O-rings that are leaking.
Here is a picture what I think it is on another forum.

Anyone have these O-ring fail and or have them replaced?

Thanks

Iggy, my 2010 378 leaked at the hydraulic motor...had that replaced with a motor that also had a new o-ring at the drive output. That stopped that leak but now after a 2000 mile trip, when I parked it in the driveway I noticed a nice pool of hydraulic fluid under the plastic reservoir. Crawled under it to take a look but can not determine source.

Mine hard to see also but it actually looks like the leak is coming from between the tank and the metal valve body and it is coming off the bolts on the metal plate that holds the tank
