I hope this find you in good health. I have a Class C Hydraulic Leveling System by Lippert (manual link
). It was factory installed on FR Sun seeker 3010DS 2018.
Issue: One of the rear jacks (driver side) started drifting down on its own while driving or while stationary. While driving, I had to retract it manually every 20 minutes to prevent it from reaching the ground. At this writing, it stops 2/3 of the way from fully extending. (see photo)
Note: All 4 jacks including the failed one works fine leveling the RV and doesn't lose strength and for extended period of time.
The fluid tank is full, no leak, and all fittings and hoses seem to be tight. I contacted LCI to check if a valve might be involved, but they excluded this because the other jack in the rear is working fine.
1. What is your thoughts and did you encounter this issue before?
2. Currently, the consensus by FR and LCI is to replace the failing jack.
A) Will this one below works with mine? I attached photos in hope you had a similar one and replaced it. Current one has 6 attachment holes, but they don't make these anymore.
B) How difficult to replace it myself? My main concern is fluids (pressured or not) during my disassembly.
Thank you - Sam
