Leveling jacks

I have had the coach in storage for 3 months. It is under cover and always connected to shore power. Went out to get set up to leave and had problems getting my jacks to retract. They did start on auto retract, but, then stopped and it took awhile to get them to go up in manual mode. Any suggestions. Thanks Bill

I have the same problem but think its the manifold and solenoids.
If you can extend your jacks again wipe them down with silicone spray or transmission fluid and wipe off excess and see if they retract.
In QT's 1 & 2 there is info for jacks.

I've read where people will use spray silicone on the shafts when they are extended. Then retract and extend again. I think wiping them down with a little bit of hydraulic oil on a rag would do as well. The packings get dry if not used for awhile and will stick like your explaining. If you have hydraulic jacks that is..

Those methods are for hydraulic jacks. The op probably has Atwood electric. Let's wait to see.

I would like to thank everyone for there words of wisdom and experience. After getting the last one down by hand. I cleaned them w/ WD40 and applied silicone. They work like new now. This will be something I will and to my checklist. Again Thank You Very much and have fun in your travels and be safe. Semper Fi Bill

I just looked at your past posts and see you have an 07 which would have been power gear. They do not condone lubricating the jacks.
