Windsport 29M Leveler Woes

2018 Thor Windsport 29M with Lippert hydraulic levelers.
Recently discovered after raising the levelers, the right front leveler drifts down, self lowers a few inches; not sure if it would sag completely down...never waited that long. Upon starting the RV the emergency retract takes over and raises it up again. Driving down the road, the emerg retract takes over and brings it back up as it apparently drifts - about every 2 minutes.
No sign of any leaks and the fluids level in the tank is fine. No problems with the other 3.

Also, given the popularity of RV's cant get in for service until mid August. Will i cause any problems if just use a zip-tie to hold it up in place while traveling and then cut off the zip tie to use the leveler while camping until i get it in for service?

Thoughts?
As always....thanks.

You have to have a leak. I would keep looking for it. Personally I wouldn't drive it until I fixed it.

If there is no external leak.
Then one of two things,
The manual over valve is not fully closed or the jack has an internal leak.

Trkyte is right. You have a work-around plan for the issue: I see no harm in implementing it until it can be fully diagnosed and repaired.

Maybe use a rubber bungee strap? Although your zip-tie solution is probably more fail-safe... just a thought.

Thanks for the info. No leaks had me confused.
