HWH Leveler Jack problem RESOLVED!! Cheaply

AS an owner Of a 2001 Georgetown Class "A" MH, I follow these postings very carefully, and it has been a great help. I am writing this post, to hopefully help someone else. My jacks are 310 series Kick down/spring return type. For over a year, and several visits to service facilities, I have always gotten the same answer. " You have a bad solenoid and it should be replaced" Knowing that a new solenoid is around $200, and having tested mine several times to be OK, I learned to live with it. After all, it sometimes would extend. Yesterday, while deploying jacks, I noticed that the left rear, the problem one, did kick down, but slowly retracted when I let go of the button. BINGO, there must be a leak. And so it was. Each solenoid has it's own check valve. Sure enough, I unscrewed the check valve and found a damaged "O" ring. Replace it and the jack works like new. Total cost= 10 cents. Total repair time= 10 minutes. ...Advice, buy a box of assorted "O" rings and keep them handy.

Good to know Free Bird. My left front is slow to retrack even after replacing the springs so who knows, it could be an oring. Will find our later.
