I just noticed one of my foot pads is wet with oil

So, I assume the only explanation is a leak in either a seal or a hydraulic hose up above? Level-Up system. The trailer just ran out of warranty like 2 weeks ago. I hope this system has it's own warranty. I suppose I should check the fittings on the inlet and outlet hoses.

I took mine to Lippert before the fall rally, had it 18 months. They replaced a bad fitting a nd the auto reset breaker at no charge. Give them a call

About 3 months ago, had my rig in storage for 30 days. Went to pick it up and found the rt front jack had oil on the foot pad. It looked like oil had run across the asphalt from the jack. Oil level did not look low.

Raised jack, loaded for trip, have used the jacks probably 6-10 times since then, not a drop of oil anywhere. So do not know if it really did leak or if someone was messing with me.

I did add the CAT Anti-stiction fluid after the leak? maybe that helped if there was a leak. I do know that the popping at night has stopped and everything "seems" smoother.

Had three legs replaced under warranty for leaks. In my case each was a "cracked housing"! Goodsam replaced last one. No discussion about fittings or a simple fix?
