power gear jacks

anyone know where I can get an item called (float sensor or float switch) for main reservoir tank for Power Gear Jacks. my rv dealer has had my rv for weeks & say they haven't found parts yet. I asked they to put old one back in but they said it was destroyed when they took it out. I'm beginning to think they are giving me the run-a-round on this.

Power Gear number (kit 500119: float switch, connector adapter
#14-1103 ,and tip sheet #54). I contacted Power Gear & they say parts are available and don't know why dealer hasn't found any.

makes me think they're giving me some BullS&^$ on this one.

Either someone goofed up and forgot to order it or something has has happened to your coach. Do not accuse them of anything, but go by and check your coach over carefully. It could be they damaged something and are covering their a$$es.

No thats not it. mine is metal shaft with a 90* angle (not plastic) according to Power Gear printout sheets. they have another number also -
(14-1106) trailor connector right angle "bobber" style float switch. at least that's what repair shop told me.

I appreciate you trying though.

You contacted info@powergearus.com and they told you the sensor was available. Tell the dealer the same thing. Tell them you want them to contact Power Gear. This seems like a no-brainer and I agree that the dealer is giving you a run-around for some reason.

You could just disconnect the wire to the float switch, install a regular toggle switch, and as long as you have oil in the tank, it should work fine. And you shouldn't be prevented from driving at all if the jacks are retracted.

It's outrageous they would have your rig for such a long time when there are a couple of ways to work around the problem until the part arrives.
