Experiencing puddles of fluid beneath your RV? If those puddles are clear or nearly clear, the leak is most likely from a hydraulic cylinder or from one of the hoses within the hydraulic system. When we’re called to assist RVers, diagnosing a leak from the RV’s hydraulic system is usually a simple recognition. The difficult task can lie in locating of the exact source of the leak as sometimes the fluid runs along structural components before it reveals itself below the under belly of the RV. If you need roadside repair for your RV’s hydraulic components, give RV Repair New Mexico a call. We can dispatch mobile mechanic technicians to your location and get your system back in operation almost as quickly as you can put together your favorite, on-the-road dinner salad topped with your own, vacation specialty, olive oil dressing.

If your RV, coach or 5th wheel travel trailer is on the road experiencing a leaking hydraulic cylinder or is exhibiting less than optimal function with the operation of the hydraulic system, the problem could lead to further degradation of the hydraulic system as well as contribution to the contamination of the environment. Driver observable symptoms of such a condition can be one or more of the following:
- Hydraulic oil may be dripping or squirting from the piston rod end of the cylinder
- Hydraulic fluid in the reservoir could have recently needed refilling with a larger than normal volume of fluid or you may notice it needs refilling more frequently than is typical
- Slow operation – Longer cycle times. i.e., your pop-out takes unusually long to pop out or retract
If the hydraulic activated components of your RV have slowed and you have observed any of the above symptoms, RV Repair New Mexico’s Mobile Roadside Repair can assist you at your current location and get your system back into top form.
The following disassembly sequence is typical of what RV Repair New Mexico would perform when the seal is leaking in the cylinder’s gland (end cap).
Source and purchase the rebuild kit from the number stamped either in the gland or cylinder housing.
Brace the weight of the implement (RV pop-out, trailer bed, RV frame, etc.) that the cylinder moves in & out, back & forth or up & down by moving it to a resting position. If moving it to the resting position conceals the hydraulic cylinder from access for repair or if it cannot be moved to the resting position, support its weight by solidly bracing it in its current position or in another position that ensures it is steady.
Release all pressure from the cylinder. Loosening or removing all of the hydraulic lines from the cylinder will help to remove all pressure stored in the cylinder.
Remove the gland. If access room is not adequate, pulling the pin from the piston rod can assist in providing more room.
Unscrew the gland (end cap) from the cylinder. Tapping the gland removal tool with a sand filled mallet can assist in breaking the gland loose. Completely unscrew the gland and if possible, remove it from the cylinder.
Pull the piston rod from the cylinder. Support cylinder housing with a boom, hoist, winch or other mechanism.
Return the rod end of the piston rod back into its pin connection. Unscrew the piston rod retaining bolt. Heat it if it appears it won’t loosen due to thread locker having been applied. Be careful to not get the piston too hot.
Inspect the piston rod for possible surface imperfections that could cause premature failure of new seals. Do the same for the interior of the cylinder to rule out premature failure of new o-rings.
Remove the o-rings and seals from the gland and piston. Clean each groove.
Reassembly – Replace O-Rings & Seals
Carefully seat each new o-ring and seal.
Reassemble in reverse order, returning the piston to the rod with thread locker, oil all parts and return the piston back into the cylinder housing.
Screw the gland back into the cylinder (without thread locker). Reattach hydraulic lines. If the system requires bleeding, properly bleed it.
Perform all tightening of bolts, etc. according to specifications.
Check to make sure there are no leaks while cycling the hydraulic activated component (wall, jack, steps, leveler) in & out, up & down or back & forth. Keep an eye on any system related hoses or lines and then be sure to observe the complete system during future operation until you are convinced it no longer leaks.
