Power Gear levelling system

I have just purchase a 1999 National RV Tradewind 7370. I got the fluid level checked and is OK. When I got to the camp site an tried to level it, with the engine running I pressed the off/on button and then the front down button, I could hear the pump running but no motion in the legs.
WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?

According to my manual. Engine running in park and parking brake set. Try setting your parking brake.

Actually there is a park brake on the Diesel Tradewinds. Mine has a square yellow knob that you pull up to set the park brake and push down to release. Mine is located on the left panel by the drivers window.

When you push the down button, it takes a few seconds before the leg actually touches the ground. Keep pushing and see if it raises.

Here is a picture of my 1999 Tradewinds with the Parking Brake and Air Dump Lever Identified. When using the jacks do it in this order....... Set Parking Brake by pulling up on the yellow button. Dump the Air by moving the Lever off of "AUYO". When all the air is out turn on the Jack Control Panel, you'll get a Green Light. The Ignition must be at least in the ACC position at this point and the battery Disconnect Switch :Salesman Switch" must be on, there is a "RED" light beside mine that's lights when in the on position.
Now lower the "Front" jacks until both are on the ground, my wife goes outside for this, saves me running in and out. Lower the rear jacks until both are on the ground, this takes a lot longer than the front on my coach. With all four jacks touching the ground you can now level front to back, Then side to side. Now put the slide out. We throw the stem control switch so they don't retract while were parked. It's very important to do the FRONT Jacks first so you don't tweak the frame and possibly pop a windshield out of the gasket.


If you didn't get a Documentation Package with your coach. Here is a link to all the docs that came with mine.

Check this paper for possible things to check on your Tradewinds. Nothing earthshaking but worth checking out.

Good Luck and Welcome to the National Club.
