Bigfoot levelers

I have the older style Bigfoot revelers. I always get a red alarm light on any assortment of the pads. They are all the way up. I have tried adjusting the sensors to no avail. It appears to me that the feet have play to the cylinder end which may be causing the alarms. Has anyone tried putting in a washer to take up the play? My thoughts are that the vibration of driving with the end play on the plates is what may be causing the alarms. Thoughts?

i'd suggest giving bigfoot a call. I've talked to them several times and they are super super folks. I'm sure they could help point you in the right direction

As mentioned call Big Foot. There is play in the foot to the actuator because of uneven ground. They must be able to assume the tilt of the site.

If you have an older panel these had issues and some people upgraded them but in saying that have you cleaned the switches on the cylinders.

The switch has a ball that will corrode and stick. A touch of water proof grease on the ball will prevent corrosion as well on the threads.

The switch on the cylinder is a Pollack 21-478P


The stainless pin that slides up and down in the barrel may be bent or need cleaning.

These are the SS pins.

I installed my jacks back in 2013 so being a newer system I don't know if my observations apply. When the jacks are fully retracted the base plates are hard up against the jack cylinder with no play or movement.
