hydraulic jacks

Hi - we are having a problem with our hydraulic jacks - the driver side is not staying in the level position and we have to constantly level the coach - a class A - do not see any hydraulic fluid leaking. What could be the problem??

What kind of jacks? HWH? Could be a solenoid in the jack itself or a check valve. If you have the HWH system go to their website or call, they are extremely helpful

you have a solonid that has to open to let fluid in or out of the jack. when it opens the fluid runs back into the storage tank. It is leaking and allowing the fluid to return to the tank. That is why you don't see a leak.

I had simuliar problem and turned out to be the selonid. If you have HWH you can call them, and they will walk you thru, to find the problem.
