I have a 2019 Redhawk 31XL and the hydraulic pump did have a leak. Of course it was out of warranty. The bottom of the motor kept getting wet with oil. I found a person close to me that would check it. I removed the unit myself. If you do this make sure you mark the wires (5) and hoses (5) so they go back on the correct places. We at first thought the seal between the motor and pump was leaking, but it was an o ring that had not been installed properly from the factory. I would expect Jayco buys these pumps already assembled (from China). The cost to repair was $250.00. If I was to take it to an RV dealer I am sure I would have got a bill for $1000.00. If this is the problem get if repaired right away, if oil gets in the motor it will be expensive to repair.
