We have a Grand Design with the 6 point hydraulic leveling system. The hydraulic line going to one of the rams has a leak. If I disconnect it at the point of the leak, put thread tape on the fitting and reconnect, do I need to be concerned about air in the hydraulic line? Is it like brake lines that need bleeding?

Yes, No need for sealant, as the threads don't seal, they just hold the sealing surfaces together. No need to worry about air, it will work itself out. Cycle the levelers several times after replacing the line, this will speed the escape of the air.
