Broken automatic levelers

I have a 2010 forest river rv. After parking and auto leveling the rv. The rear levelers were on mud, they started to slide, and they bent. I had to cut off the metal shaft that is pushed out of the hydraulic canister. Anyways does anyone know if I have to replace the whole hydraulic unit, or can I just replace that shaft, or any suggestions would be helpful.

In my experience the shaft and seal kit somtimes is almost as much as the complete cylinder.
Call your dealer an ask them if there's a parts brake down.

If it's an HWH cylinder there located about 25 minutes from me here in Iowa.

Welcome to the forum and good luck.

search your area for a hydraulic repair shop. most of the time they can make a new rod and install new seals for a lot less than what the parts are from the factory
