HWH Jack Noisy

Hi All,

I recently had a jack that was retracting slowly so I ordered some new springs and installed them. I then tested the jack a couple of times and it retracted nicely. I let the coach sit for a couple of weeks, before leaving on vacation. On the first lowering of the jack after sitting for two weeks, it started making a screeching vibrating type noise while lowering but quiets down and lifts fine as soon as the weight of the coach gets on it. I have been forced to use it like this as I am on the road for a couple of weeks. It is still working but very noisy. Does anyone have any ideas what is causing this type of noise?? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I had the same thing happen recently, and just as suddenly. I cleaned the shaft, wiped it with HWH fluid and cycled it a few times and that seemed to do the trick.

Check your fluid level in the fluid tank, with all jacks retracted the level should be between the two lines on the shaft of your bell vent on tank.
You can use HWH jack fluid or transmission fluid.
