Big Country Hydraulic Hose Ties Slideouts to Level-Up, Heartland CS Comments?

I am in the process of replacing 2 leaking hoses on my right side jacks, middle to rear.

Nobody has a hydraulic plumbing diagram for a Heartland Big Country. I said a hydraulic plumbing diagram, they don't exist. Nobody at Heartland CS can tell me how these hoses are routed. I was on my own.
The 6 point Level-Up system is not supposed to tie into the hydraulic slide outs according to the aftermarket manual (last page) but they do. Apparently the slide out rams get their retract pressure from the L and R jacks! I replaced two hoses (orange and black) from the middle right side jack to the right rear jack. Tested them and the jacks worked great L and R. Tested slideouts they extended but would not retract. Apparently the slide out rams are the last devices on the daisy chained retract jack circuit, L and R. Any body from Heartland care to comment?

I would not assume that an AFTERMARKET installation would be the same as a FACTORY installation.

I would have contacted lippert for any advise the hydraulics, they actually make the system, heartland just buys a package.
