LCI hydraulic levelers

I have a Coachman Encounter 2013, one of the Lippert jacks was leaking. Had it replaced for $1,200
Can the leaky one be repaired? Has anyone
repaired their levels?

I personally don't know, but I've read on the Dutchmen forum of handy guys have done it. On the other hand I've heard around the campfire that it is proprietary and LCI says it's not worth it and they are throw aways. Hopefully someone who knows for sure will post.

Maybe. Some hydraulic stuff can be disassembled and seals replaced, if you can find parts. Unfortunately, most of what the RV industry generally uses is not readily repairable. Not to mention, not too many the techs are capable of much more than parts swapping. Also, I am sure labor costs factor into it. It probably costs about as much in general labor to remove a hydraulic jack, rebuild it and reinstall as it does to just swap it out for a new one. Swapping parts is usally the path of least resistance. If you are working on your own items labor isn't as big of a deal.
