Hydraulic jacks

I have a 33 ft 2010 Georgetown - new in April. Took it out this past week to attend a family function and then was going on a holiday. But, got warning chime that the hydraulic jacks were down, they weren't and most of the fluid leaked out. Can't find the problem myself so am taking it in next week. Has anyone else had problems with their hydraulic jacks?
Thanks for any information.

We have a 2010 Georgetown 341DS......had a problem with the hydraulic jacks. Our system is the LCI Electronic Leveling System. The problem was in the control panel on the dash. After talking with Lippert and the tech at our RV dealer, I took the 4 screws out of the panel and looked behind to find a broken wire. It was over crimped during installation and worked for a period of time before the vibration of travel broke it completely. Lucky of us we got the jacks up one last time before the final break.

I have the 330TS that we got in March 2010 and the first time out noticed a hydralic leak while at the park. I pulled the step cover off to expose the batteries and hydralic pump. I found a plug that was in the manifold was loose and leaking. This worked for a while, and then started leaking again somewhere else. It is at the shop right now getting stuff fixed, so I don't know what the leak was this time. Should get it back soon.

Had a very small leak on the front driver side leveler. Dealership looked at it but never found anything. I noticed it wouldn't show up for about 3-4 days so I kept an eye on it. Found the leak in the threads at the top. This leveler was never as straight as the others. The hydraulic lines were not quite up and down. I took it apart, added teflon tape to the threads and actually got another half turn on the tube with a pipe wrench. I only lost about a cup of fluid. Filled up the tank to the correct level and ran the coach up and down about four times to purge the air and it's been fine since.

Replaced both front jacks on our 2008 Georgetown. Ist one leaked when we bought it, and the second one about a year latter. Forest River replaced both. I also found one of the fittings near the pump was leaking and fixed that myself. I leave a paper towel in the bottom of the pump housing to check for leaks. No problems for over 2 years and 19000 miles.
