Cool 1995 Monaco Dynasty

Help! I just got the coach out of inside storage from the winter weather and it started right up and ran great. When I got to my destination storage yard for the summer I activated the jacks to take some weight off the suspension. The jacks quit working and won't retract. I also now notice some oil along the left
side of the coach. Where is the tank to check the oil level and possibly trace the lines to to inspect for a leak. Can't move the coach without retracting the jacks. Help!

On my 2000 dynasty, the hydraulic reservoir is in the front right of the coach, in front of the stairs. Extend the generator and look down and to the left. There are three T handles, one for each jack. Turn it counter clockwise to release the jack.

The hydraulic reservoir on your coach is in the left front. Open your generator door and look down to your right, you'll see it just below the windshield washer fluid jug.

Thanks. I found it. I got the jacks to retract but now they won't cycle back down. I tried to see inside the reservoir but couldn't. There is no dipstick so I don't know how much fluid needs to be in there. Could I have an electrical issue as well? All the lights on the control panel function and the red light went out when the jacks retracted.

Ya, I know. Where the reservoir sits you can't see inside it. There's no dipstick. I use a stick of some sort, just make sure not to drop it into the tank!

Yes. You could have an electrical issue. The switches on the leveling pad can be a little finicky sometimes. I've always attributed it do dust accumulation. Sometimes playing with the switches on-off-on helps. If you don't hear the pump running when you press the switch to lower the jack, then I'd say you have a switch not working.

Sounds like a dirty switch problem, spray with a good contac cleaner. To fill the resivor tank extend the front Jack 6 inches leave the ignition key on and fill until the alarm stops dinging. You might want to check out the info on your Jack system so to better understand it on this link.

Yep. It was the switch. I bought a new set of switches and it works great.
