Maybe only HWH, but definitely not all systems are passive. My PowerGear/Kwikee jacks have hydraulic return hoses, no springs. (I wish they did have springs - I think.)

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

My buddy bought a new 2013 Winnebago Journey. We accompanied him on the maiden voyage. The first day was good, the second morning we were all set to leave the camp and his leveling sytem engaged by itself, dumped the air and lowered the stands. After 30 minutes of trying to stop it from turning itself on and starting the levelling process we thought we were good to go. Nope.... half way out the driveway the system came on, dropped the air, rang the alarms and flashed the Jacks Down light. It wasn't able to drop the jacks but it did lower the air ride. We ended up raising the jacks, shutting off the system and unplugging the controls. He will be taking it back to the dealer when we get back. For now he plugs it in to level but unplugs it after raising the jacks.
