Please give us as much information as possible. Year, make and model of the coach; the make and model of the leveling system, what things have you checked and what did you find?

I have a 1998 Fleetwood Pace Arrow. Do not know what to check. Both fronts work. Right rear worked, both rears worked, no longer moving. Can hear pump but rams do not descend.

Are you sure it's not low on fluid , that's what it sound like to me. The pump is running but the fluid is too low to pump anything. I own a 98 Bounder and have added fluid to mine before.

Could be. No operators manual. Where might I find the fluid fill?

If the fronts work by themselves and rears don't work by themselves, I think that would rule out fluid level. Re-seat all the connectors a couple of times. Tap on the solenoids with the wooden end of a hammer while trying to extend them.

It sounded like he was trying to put all 4 jacks down at once and I was thinking low fluid because it would flow to the closest jacks first then run low on the rears. Also he said the pump is running so that would indicate fluid as the jack is hydraulic ran by a electrical pump. I would just check fluid level and not rely on idiot light anyway just so you know where/how to check/fill. Put rears down first and see what happens. My control board went out many years ago and I replaced it but I can't remember what was going wrong with it. Electrical connections are always a issue on RV's because there are so many.

TdogKing, no need to defend yourself. My post was more of a suggestion on how to check for low fluid level. If it's like my reservoir, you need smoke and mirrors just to check it.
