LED display

We have had a 2005 Damon Intruder 391 since 06 and about 3 years ago our LED display just faded out. You can read it but not real good. Has anyone had this problem and if so is it a DIY fix. Plus since new our auto jack system alarm seems to go off at will any ideas on this.

THanks have a great day.

IF you mean the LCD display on the dash and if it is a 391W (Workhorse chassis) contact Workhorse (now Northstar) you may be in luck.. I can not guarantee but I believe there may be a TSB on the dash TSB's are sometimes referred to as 'Hidden warranties'.

Mine had to be replaced, I am in an 05

As for the alarm on your hydrolic jacks going off randomly, your reservoir is possibly low on fluid, this causes your alarm to go off when you hit dips in the road,etc.. All you need to do is top it off and I suspect the problem will go away.

DIY fix could be just removing and reinstalling the fuse. Fades on electronic devices that use very little power (called 'Dry circuits'), are often caused by low voltage reaching the device. That can be caused by corrosion or a poor connection. Either the hot lead or the ground wire. I would check the voltage right at the device to start with. If it's OK, then it's probably an internal problem.

In addition to what another poster mentions about your jack system beeping, if you're loosing oil on a regular basis, I've found that ATF stop leak works well. I had a pretty big leak on a rear jack, always a puddle of oil in the pad, added stop leak a couple years ago and it's still holding.

If you are referring to your dash guage, and it is an Actia, they are notorious for this. Good news, it can be repaired by Actia. I pulled mine on a previous motorhome and sent it to them. Quick turnaround and it was like new when I got it back.

Did you mean Navistar rather than Northstar?

Welcome to irv2.
If your display is on the Workhorse chassis it is a Actia display, this link will give you the instructions to get it replaced from Actia.
The coat will be about $375 and the old one has to be sent back to them to reset your mileage on the replacement unit.
Dependent on your dash it may only require the removal of some screws to remove from dash.
Your jack alarm maybe a jack that has not returned to the stop position due to weak springs or a defective sensor at the top of jack piston.
