leveling jacks

I have a 2004 Holiday Rambler Ambassador. It has RVA leveling jacks. Why would the jacks settle. We have checked the fluid level and have inspected for external leaks and all looked well. Sometimes it settles so hard it will shake the whole coach. We have checked the level and it has remained the same.

There is a solenoid that activates the hydraulic fluid for the jacks. It is likely leaking internally and needs to be replaced. It is not an easy job. Good luck.

x2. In addition to the solenoid there are also valves for the jacks that might be internally leaking

Thank You for your replys. We rechecked everything and found one lid on the manual controls was a little bit loose. Since we tightened that it hasn't moved. I'm not sure if that was our problem or that the coach finally settled in. Either way the annoying settling is over.
