front leveler slowly sags

Hi forum, when we are parked for about 4 days or more i notice the leveler piston under the driver's seat area loses some height and starts sagging.

i talked to the manufacturer for the leveler and they told me to turn the allen bolts on the fluid valves counter clockwise to make it stop leaking...

but i gave the piston a visual inspection and it sure looks like it is leaking. it has oily dried up crud all over it and the others are clean dry and just dusty.

is there a good way to confirm the leak? i was thinking to clean the piston and hydraulic line going to the piston and then watch it.

is there a good way to tell if the leak is the piston, the connector between the piston and the line, the line, or something else?


ours is a 2012 with bunk beds

Clean it well then keep a good eye on it and if it is and external leak you should be able to determine from where.

You never said that you did verify the allen screw to be fully counter clockwise. All of the valves allen screws should be snuged counter clockwise. What jergeod said.
