Advice on replacing Lippert Hydraulic jacks needed

Hi

I have a 2012 Keystone Fuzion toy hauler with the Lippert hydraulic jack system. I noticed that the passenger side center jack is leaking. It seems to have leaked out a fair amount as the foot had quite a bit of fluid on it. The passenger side front jack also has a small amount of residual oil on it. I am looking at replacing both jacks. I would greatly appreciate any advice on this subject.

Thanks!

The jacks are easy to replace. Just make sure the pressure has been relieved. To do that, retract them, then extend for about a second if I remember. New jacks will NOT have the flare fittings so youíll need to transfer them. Pay attention to which color hose goes where. Also count the holes, so they go back at the same height. 15/16Ē if I remember right for the bolts/nuts.

Check locally for a hydraulic repair shop, they can rebuild the jacks for around $150, about 25% of a new jack.

That's what I was going to suggest ^^^^....have them rebuilt with new seals and you should be good to go..much cheaper option than total replacement.
