Has anyone having a unit with the 3 point RVA Jack system experienced leakage of fluid from any of the jacks, and if so, what was required to stop/repair the leak. Perhaps some of you may have repaired either an RVA Jack or HWH Jack. If so, how much trouble was it, and was it basically just replacing the "O" rings. I searched the database for info on the RVA Jacks, but found nothing. HWH however, is well represented, but didn't see where anyone had tackled a repair job. Thanks for any constructive info anyone might be able to provide. Take care all.

After a new search of the database older than 12 months, I found someone who has made a repair to one of their jacks. I'm going to give it a try. If I fail, I can always send it back for a rebuilt/replacement etc. Thanks for your words or wisdom. Take care.

If you need a new cylinder... ask them for a rebuilt if available, much less $$

Check your pump and resevoir. Ours had 2 problems from the factory the cap wasn't screwed on completely and the actual coupling attachment for the line wasn't tightened completely.

RVA was only a Monaco supplied product. They did not make or sell to anyone but Monaco. Sadly, Monaco discontinued RVA a few years ago in favor of Powergear jacks. RVA still supports the product and if you call the number listed from the previous post, they will tell you how to send one back for rebuild. Doug

Two of my three RVA jacks started leaking just out of warranty. I was at Monaco and ended up buying two new ones. The two leaking ones are still laying in my garage. Must question the quality of these jacks.

I have RVA jacks on my 1994 Monaco Dynasty. I have had since new. I have had no problems with the jacks. Just replaced one valve. They are very helpful in dealing with any problems.

I have 3 RVA jacks on a 2000 HARNEY COACH Riata, and so far have had no problems with them at all! Good Luck.

If your jacks are just seeping don!t be afraid to try one of the transmission stop leak additives.These products soften seals and really can!t hurt anything.I have had good luck using these products on various hydralic rams including marine tilt cylinders and within days no oil slick on water 100%fixed cheep and easy.
