My right front jack will not stay down. What is typical solution to fix this type of problem?

Also, does anyone with a 2000 vintage Alpine with only one slide have a diagram showing, or can explain to me, what goes where inside the HWH compartment? I believe the coaches came with a diagram but mine is missing.

I'm off to Santa Cruz this morning for a few days of camping in the redwoods while my son plays in a golf tournament.

It sounds to me like you need to replace the solenoid for the jacks. Not a complex thing to do, but the the manual from the previous post should show that.

Tom and Laurel.

I have the schematics to our coach...one slide. They are up at our summer campground. I will try to remember to bring them back this Sunday with the schematics I promised EM about 4 weeks ago. IIRC all the jack solenoids are toward the rear of the coach.

I can probably scan them and e-mail them to you. You can PM me.

Tom and Laurel:

I'm not sure if it helps, but my solenoids are center-coach, right behind the front wheels in the first bay. They are covered by a little gray fabric and lauan divider and sit next to the drain for the water tank.

I just talked to HWH and their technical support person suggested I try the following...

1) Manually open both center solenoid valves that control the front jacks.

2) Lower the jacks until they touch the ground then let them fully retract. Do this three times.

3) Close the solenoid valves and see if they hold pressure.

The tech told me that sometimes a small object can get stuck in the valve and cause it to not seal properly. Opening the valve and cycling them a few times may flush out the object if that is the problem. If this doesn't work, he suggested a new solenoid will be needed.

I'll keep you posted.

UPDATE 7-21-08: The above procedure didn't help so I have ordered a replacement solenoid from HWH.
