I had a similar problem at Quartzite, no HWH jacks or air dump. E Mike found the problem.
Look at the fuse block above the batteries, back wall, there should be a 15A fuse labeled House Power. I believe it is second from the left, bottom row. Some HWH functions seem to go thru this fuse.

Ed and dinane... checked out ur suggestions, from an earlier post, and found a questionable fuse in that location. Replaced it, with an audible click upon install, but still no results.... The problem probably has a simple solution, the trick is finding out what it is. DUDLEY DO RIGHT. 2006 Apex 40MDTS

Did you check the wires on the back of the push pull parking brake button?
I don't mean to be a pest, but it could be the simple solution your looking for.
It happened to me.
I know my 04 is not the same as your Apex but I'm guessing that you have the same parking switch?

RE: "checking for loose ground wire" Your'e not being "pesty" at all, I did look at the back of the parking/airbrake switch, briefly, while looking for something else, and saw that there are two studs on the back of the switch upon which were attached two wires, one of which I'm sure goes to a ground conn. somewhere; however I didn't trace either one of them out... maybe I should.
Thanks Dudley, (Dudley Do Right)

I also talked to engineer Mike yesterday, and cried on his shoulder for a while...am going to talk to him again this PM and tell him results of something else I did in the interim.

I'm going to check the TM102 in the tank bay to see if the plug with the red wire is the issue with my water pump. Maybe your issue is related to this plug as well?

Thanks for checking. The members that are trying to help you are far more educated on these rigs than I am.
All I have to offer is that parking switch sends a signal and the Jacks will not go down without that switch telling the system it's in park.

The 15A fuse Ed refers to in post#15 above powers a red wire marked HSE-PWR which runs to the TM102 (and may splice to some other space junk as well, couldn't say w/out tracing it).

Dudley- if you heard a "click" when replacing that fuse, it might have been the fuse popping. I'd check both sides putting my volt meter on the little metal nibs visible on the outward face of the fuse to see if there is 12V in & out. If yes then the fuse is still intact; if no the circuit is clearing that fuse w/either a short or overload.
