Any one have a problem with the jacks while driving in hot weather? We will be driving along with the jack control in the store position,as per directions,and the jacks down warning buzzer and light come on.I beleive the cause is from heat from engine conpartment is heating the hydraulic fluid in the lines leading to the jacks and causing the right front jack to move down slightly,just enough to open the circuit and set off the alarm.The only way to get the alarm off is to get under the coach and force the jack up with a peice of 2x4.Itonly needs to go up about 1/8'' inch to stop the warning buzzer.The other way to stop the buzzer is to pull the fuse in the dash.I was told by a Newmar service advisor that it was the nature of the beast.I think there must be a remidy for this problem. Any suggestions or inputs would be greatly appreciated. The coach is a '04 ksca 3740. thanks,Bob

When storing the jacks it has been said to allow the control panel to shut of itself after the red lights have gone off. The jacks may travel another 1/2" to 1" after the red lights go off. The springs are what forces the fluid back to the fluid tank and hold the jacks up. If you have a weak spring or springs on that jack can cause the problem. HWH have newer springs to elimiate this problem.
Try allowing the yellow light to go off by itself first and see if that solves the problem.

I have found in the past when I have jack problems that HWH is the best people to call and they have always solved the problem.

I recently experienced the same problem while driving in snow and ice. As soon as we were in warmer weather, the alarmed stopped.
