Jacks Losing Pressure?

We have had to relevel the coach once a week, seems like the jacks loose pressure over time. Any ideas?

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I have moved your thread here to the Class A forum where you'll get far more views. I've also put a more descriptive title on it in place of your screen name.

I believe it is possible for the jacks to lose pressure over time if you have a leaky solenoid. I believe each jack has it's own solenoid though so I would suspect that you are always having to make the same adjustments since the same solenoid is leaking? Before doing anything else though, be sure to check your hydraulic fluid level.

Including the year, make and model of your rig in your signature line will help you get responses more specific to your particular rig.

Best of luck.

Since you seem to be saying that all your jacks are dropping, the common device to them all would be the 'Retract' hydraulic solenoid (depending on type and model of your system). This valve can be held open a tiny bit by a contaminant. Since it seems to happen regularly then you'd probably need to remove and clean the valve. If it's only happened a couple times, you might dislodge debris by extending and retracting several times.
