hydraulic levelers

Wondering if anyone has had problems with the jacks not responding up or down. The computer pad lights up and dings crazily put no go with levelers retracting. Have called a service specialist and will be here in a few days to look at the problem but if anyone has had the same issue I'd like to hear your take on it. Thanks

Please give us the make and model of the system. Do you have the owners manual and does it have instructions on how to reset the system? If so, have you tried a reset?

If your system is HWH and all fuses are good then look at the control box main control card. Up in the top right hand corner is a 1" long metal strip that will burn up if it overheats. If you have to, you can jumper or bypass that strip for a temporary fix to get the jacks to raise.
Good luck, Rick

Had the same problem with my 36 ' discovery and my hydrolic fluid was low and it did the same as you describe, check fluid.

RV Wizard, it is a kwikee and have no idea what model #, I may be looking at wrong manual for that info. I have tried to reset the sytem already and a no go, park break set..don't know about the fluid level as yet and have no idea where to check the fluid level at and manual is instructing as if I should know these things already, as you can no doubt tell by now I'm the unmechanical mind part of the duo.

You will want to get this to a good repair facility that has experience with the Kwikee leveling system. Some of the systems are obsolete and parts are hard to find since Power Gear bought them out. Power gear does make replacement pump and motor that is compatible but is not cheap. The old Kwikee pump manifolds had some issues for sure.

repairman says it's my auto leveling, I can level one jack at a time up and down sooo it's a shop job but alas, I bought an extendend warranty with the rig so I guess alls well with that. Shop seems to be a well liked rv repair service in the area so fingers crossed Thanks for all the help everyone.. so appreciate it!
