6 point leveling system

Discovered today that the front driver side leg is covered in thin layer of oil.

Seems to be the bottom end might be seeping, not the ram but the cap. I will watch now to see if I can find the source.

Does any one know the spec for tightening the bottom cap bolts?

Anyone else had this problem? we have had the trailer close to 4 years.

Some of the cylinders get scratches in the bore during manufacturing. The o-rings then weep, top or bottom caps. Best to replace the jack. I was able to fix mine by polishing the bore but it took years to figure it out. It wasn't' worth taking it to a dealer for the small cost of adding fluid.
