automatic jacks

I currently have electric jacks on my 2008 Fleetwood 32' motorhome. They do not seem to be working correctly. They raise and lower just fine, no problem there.

However when they stop and indicate that I am level I am actually not. First, is this something that can be adjusted in order to fix the problem? Second, does anyone know how costly it is to change to hydrolic jacks? Third, is the change over worth the cost?

Absolutely any information/comments will be appreciated.

Here's the Power Gear tech doc on
calibration. I had an. 08 Bounder with the electric jacks. After an initial problem with water intrusion in the brake , all was well. I would think it's not worth the expense to go to hydraulic.


Here's another link to a thread which will assist .

It's very long but worth it.

I also have an '08 with the electric Power Gear jacks. They are very easy to adjust for level.

I do the electric jack calibration so the the refrigerator is plumb left/right and front/back.

They are also easy to "confuse", if you kill the ignition while the jacks are leveling they will enter an "alarm" mode. Also easy to reset and return to normal. I discovered this feature when I killed the engine after noticing our door steps were extended out over the sidewalk and the jacks were lowering...

If I buy another mh, PG electric jacks would be a + to me.
