Before I take her to the shop, any suggestions of where to "kick"? The front jack does not operate when the extend switch is pushed. Worked fine all week but when I tried to park her at my house, the front does not respond. Back jacks operate fine.

Recently I was told that if the system finds level without using a specific jack it does so. For me it was my left rear that did not operate. The local Monaco certified repair shop was my source of this info.

I think I'll "reboot" by moving the coach a few feet and doing an air-dump then see what happens. I suspect the contact on the manual toggle switch.

Thanks for the input.

I removed the fill cap on the hydraulics oil reservoir yesterday and found that the "dip-stick" attachment was broken off! Probably jammed up in a valve somewhere! DOH!

Dude -
So what are you waiting for? Get out the Saw-Z-All and start looking for that dip-stick attachment! Tim Taylor would be so-o-o-o proud.

In all seriousness, how much is left on the cap? Or did it all go inside? OUCH!!

Man, as soon as the blade pierced the tank, I got a face full of hydraulic fluid! Sure wish I had drained it first!

Actually, I don't know how big a piece is missing. I can see where there was a piece about half the diameter of pencil broken off even with the bottom of the cap/plug threads. I assume it was the "dip-stick" with a marking section for fluid level.

Ron the jacks on your coach are made by RVA here is their web site http://www.rvajacks.com/
I dont think that the breather cap has a dip stick on it, If the jack is extending but not lifting it probaly trash in the valve (middle valve for the front) extend it and release pressure by opening the T valve, If it dont move at all give RVA A call they are nice folks and will help you at 760-746-5732
