HWH Model 610

Ok the dreaded jacks won't retract. On a 1996 Holiday Rambler Imperial, the rf jack will not retract on its own. What I have done: replace springs,lubed cylinder, opened t-handle on solenoid. The only think that works is applying pressure with a small floor jack under the pad while system is in store mode. But recently, it takes a lot of force to raise the cylinder and now the jacks down light stays on and the red indicator light for that jack stays lite on the control panel. I disconnected the indicator plug going to the jack and both lights will go out and the travel light will come on. Any suggestions on what to try next? Thanks for any ideas.

Call Chuck at Stuart's Service in Elkhart IN. 800-826-6267

He knows these HWH systems better than HWH knows them! He may say you need a new shuttle valve. Also sells any parts you need.

sc, the cylinder need rebuilding or replacing.
at fmca rallies, like the one in perry ga, there are lots of guys with 2x4's.
they know what has to be done, but wont do it. they keep putting up with it, hoping there is some miracle cure, but it just won't happen.
the solution is to cut loose with some money and repair the problem.
thats what i do.on my coach.
call hwh and get a tracking number. send it in to be repaired. unless its bent, the cost is way less than a new jack. the most they will charge is for a reman jack.
even at that its still cheaper.
if you just want a reman cylinder, call chuck stuart in elkhart. his prices are the same as hwh.
