Slide cylinders rusted

We live in our (2nd owner) 2011 FR 355QBQ 5th wheel on the coast, our slides cylinders went from a little rusty to WTH with nothing seaming to help. My question is without taking my bottom off are these rebuildable at a hydrolic shop or are they cheap crimped throw aways? After repair or replacement next spring we will be unbolting and retracting the cylinders with the slides out for extended stays. Just wanting to know if I order new replacement or plan on taking them to the machine shop.

I would price new ones, then price out a rebuild if possible. Sometimes the complete unit is cheaper than the parts and labor to fix.

Figured after a week one of the FR guys might have looked it up and let me know but no love..local dealer was of absolutely no help.. I'll likely crawl under and look after winter as we're not moving it any time soon.
