Lippert Level Up Slider Solenoid Leaking

Awhile back we had an issue with our level up system and had to use the emergency drive access with a drill to run the hydraulic pump until we discovered the circuit breakers on the power strips. While using the drill for power it was discovered that the system would not function from the control panel and someone suggested performing the slider and jack system independent of each other. In one on line commentary it recommended that we open the solenoid for the sliders with an allen key which we did. That solenoid was later reclosed but has an intermittent leak coming from the bottom. Is there a seal that could be replaced or would the entire solenoid have to be replaced. Also, during the problem when the circuit breakers were tripped we experimented with the 5 black twist valves listed as MAIN-OPPOSING-BED open-close and two unidentified valves above the antenna cables on the panel. Since these were "messed with" the hydraulic system does not operate properly and when you use the control panel to lower and level the jack system the sliders will also partially open. Is it possible that the leaking solenoid for the sliders could be allowing fluid to pass through when the jacks are used or would that be a problem with the position of the 5 twist valves? Thanks for any ideas, suggestions, help.

Not sure which issue is the main culprit but the leaking solenoid valve does give cause for concern. You didn't have to open the solenoid with a hex wrench, all you had to do was hook a jumper wire from the positive post of the battery to the solenoid that you wanted to function. You can see the wire connections at the top of the solenoid valves.
