Sharing what I've done to stop severely leaking hydraulic leveling jacks .
Our 2000 Monaco has Power Gear leveling jacks . They leaked a little over the last few years , but , the leaking reached the point of leaking fluid pretty bad . I had to readjust the level almost every day and , of course , the leaks left puddles of fluid .
I thought I'd have to remove the jacks and replace the seals .
Trying to avoid that task , I thought I'd try a transmission stop leak first . I bought Bar's Leak Automatic Transmission Repair ( pictured below ) . It is compatible with all automatic transmission fluids . Our system uses Dexron 3 .
Being there was more than enough fluid on the ground , I wasn't too worried about over filling the system . Just to be sure , I retracted the jacks and applied the 'repair' .
To better mix the 'repair' with the fluid in the system , I cycled ( extend and retract ) the jacks 3 or 4 times .
That was a few days ago . The first day the rig settled a bit , but not as much as before . I readjusted . Since then , the rig has not sank a bit . And , no fresh fluid on the ground .
So far , I'm a very happy camper .
I'll give the fix a fair amount of time and report whether it held or not .
