Leveler leaking
« on: September 08, 2022, 07:51:20 am »
Our 2012/2552 had a pinhole on top of one of the rear levelers, possibly a faulty weld or crimp.  Hard to say how long itís been seeping as the leveler has been wet in the 2 years we have owned it.  Iíve never been too concerned thinking it was just a weeping seal.  Being frugal, I patched it with JB Weld.  While another leak may pop up, for the moment itís as dry as a bone.

I'm thinking you should check the hydraulic fluid. The tank is under your PC on the generator side (if in the same location as our 2020 2552) The level should be checked when there's no pressure on the hydraulics. When there's no pressure on the lines most of the fluid runs back into the tank. Jacks up, no pressure & most of the fluids in the tank. Hope this helps, Chuck :)

Checking the level was the first thing I did.  It was about 1/2 quart low.  Some times you fix one hole  only to find another leak.  So far itís holding fine;  sure beats replacing the hydraulics.  Thanks for the advice, the forum has been a great help over the past couple of years.
