Jack solenoid location

Looking for the location of the leveling jack solenoids. In particular the solenoid that controls the driver's side rear jack. I was told by a dealer they replaced a solenoid. I looked at what I thought was the solenoids, (next to the pump) and all 4 have the same amount of dirt on them. Looked at the jack and the wires going to it are just as dirty as the jack. I am hoping there is something I'm missing.

On my 4381, they're under the hood on the left hand side. You can see the pump motor, and they are the 4 round silver things connected to the manifold.

Jack Solenoid

That is where I thought. None of them have been changed, I was hoping there is something else that I was missing.
Thanks for your reply.
Be safe

Your HWH manual will identify the 4 solenoids and which jacks they control. From memory, the 2 larger ones control the rear.

Yes. Most likely the sight of the part that the dealer may (or not) have repalced.

The "Solenoid" is a 3 part device
One part is the valve, ODDS are when the dealer said he replaced it this is what he replaced. If you look at the "nut" at the base of the thign where is screws into the assembly. THIS part may show as "clean"

Slipped over this is the COIL, This part was likely NOT replaced. and it is what you are looking at. I'd not even disconnect it (electrically) When replacing the valve

Finally there is the plastic cap screws off and on and likewise not replaced, in fact on some of the valves.. OPTIONAL.

But look right where it screws into the housing, that is the only visible part that will show "Clean" on a new valve.
Home is where I park it!
