Cardinal 2005 M-29WB Hydraulic & seals

Hi everyone. Yes, I have the infamous Lippert tubular hydraulic pump for my 2 slideouts.
Question; does anyone know if the fluid holding tank should be filled to the top or, should an air space of an inch or more be left for heat expansion?

Also, if anyone knows where to get new slide out seals that would be great. Mine are just worn out
Thanks fellow campers!

If your tank doesn't have min/max lines, mark the fluid level with slides all the way in, then move slides out and mark level. You don't want the tank to be dry and suck air. If you have sufficient oil in tank when slides are out, all is good. If you're low add a little, but remember that the tank will fill when the slides come in.

As for the slide out seals, there are a hundred different types. Check this link to see if you can find something that looks like what you have.

Hey, again, thanks for the tip. I removed about an inch or so of fluid from the holding tank and ran the slides a few times. I was surprised at how little fluid it took to actually move them both in and out. Bottom line; no more fluid leak. My father in law, rest his soul, kept the tank full and it was coming out of the vent a bit with each use.
Thanks again.
