They rebuilt mine. When talking to HWH you should inquire about the cost of rebuilding vs new. Also warranty on each option if any?
Good luck and keep me posted on progress.

Gary and others,
Well, after much labor, some serious stress, a tad bit a cursing, a bunch of rags, we got it out, found the problems seal, could not get a hold of HWH for advice for three days, I finally took the ram to a local hydraulic repair shop and they took one look at it and went over to their supply of seals etc and placed new ones in there. It took them about 20 minutes to disassemble, analyze, procure new ones and reassemble it. The cost, right at $30.00.

Now, it was time to re-enter the demilitarized zone of zillions of cables, hoses, water lines etc to re-install that cylinder. Really, it wasn't all that bad. But, trying to hook up the hydraulic lines and then make sure they're real tight, now that was a chore. But, when all was said and done, it was about two hours to get the unit out, and about an hour and a half getting it back in and working. I did have to put new screws in where the little panel came out for extraction and re-insertion of the cylinder, behind the house batteries.

Incidentally, HWH finally called me this morning, (after about 3 days wait) and the tech confirmed many things I was wondering about in the process of the operation. A bit late but, helpful none the less, for the next time, not if, but when it happens. So there you go, all done.
Scott
