I have had a small hydraulic leak from the pump system for a while. I finally narrowed it down to the o-ring between the plastic tank and the pump itself. It's a 3.5" o-ring. Looks like whoever installed it did not get the o-ring in level all the way around as it had a twist in it. Ok, I'll just get a new o-ring from Lippert and replace it. Well, much to my surprise, Lippert will not sell replacement o-rings. What a crappy way to treat a customer who spends mucho money on their products. I could probably rotate the o-ring to the top so that it's above the fluid level but I'd rather fix it right. Other than Amazon, where could I get a replacement O-ring that has a flat surface? Lippert stinks!

I would guess that any hydraulic shop should be able to help you. Most any area will have a shop that repairs the millions of farming and construction equipment that uses hydraulic rams on the equipment. I am sure that Lippert did not re-invent the wheel and probably used an O-ring that was already in use on another ram.

I would clean the aluminum and the plastic tank and dry. Thes use a Permatex type gasket maker and put a bead and reinstall. There is no real pressure on the system from the reservoir tank. Other than the pressure of the liquid sitting in the tank. Doug

Wonder why the lady told me Lippert doesn't sell o rings??
The ones on their site don't appear to be the right size.
I did email Lippert with the specs to see if someone else can help me.
Thanks for the responses!

Have you looked at the pump? Odd's are Lippert doesn't make them.

Right on!
FWIW, I have an "O" ring kit that is a "make your own" kit. It comes with various diameters of "O"ring material and a special glue. Cut to length and glue ends together.

So you are right, alternatives are out there.

That's putting it mildly LOL.

That's typical Lippert for you. $10.95 + $19.00 shipping for an O ring worth about 2 bucks.
