How about explaining what's happening for you to replace a part six times. JM2...

If you are going to the auto parts store and buying a solenoid it will be a starter solenoid. It will not take the load of your system running for any length of time. They are designed for a short load time, spinning the starter and then off. You need a continuous duty solenoid. they are designed to rub for a long period. A good RV dealer or auto electric shop should have or get you one.

Solenoid has stopped working after trips of over 3-4 hours on smooth roads. Also has stopped working after short trips on forest service roads. I have thoroughly cleaned every electrical joint that i can find, checked all fuses, and the only thing that relieves the problem is changing the solenoid. It's getting expensive.

What is the function of the "hydraulic" solenoid? On my unit, the hydraulics are for my leveling system only and the system does not have a trembella type solenoid. What is the make, model, and year of the MH? Also a description of the problem - other than it stops working - needs to be provided. After replacing the solenoid, does it work for weeks when the MH is stationary? Does it work after operating on smooth pavement? Would the thing work if the MH was stopped and cooled down? Need more information in order to help. JM2...

2005 forest river georgetown xl. 34 foot with v10 gas engine. The function of the solenoid is to activate the forward and reverse action of the two slide outs and to activate the hydraulics for the levelers. I have also replaced the electric motor that activates the hydraulic system. The motor has worked ok for the past four years. We did the alaska trip this early summer and everything was fine during the trip. The problem seems to be very intermittent. The problem does not go away if the mh is cooled down. Once the system stops working, that's it....no function.
