Also, there is a 150 Amp circuit breaker on the 12VDC Distribution Panel that feeds both the Jacks Motor and the Generator Starter......will your Generator start? If no, check the Breaker. Rook

Generator starts and runs fine and powers the coach. I have also tried with the engine on and off and with the parking brake set and not set. I will try today to poke around under there, find the pump and related hardware for these things underneath and look at the fluid level of the resevior, connections, etc.

I have a feeling it's something simple that's has shaken loose as they worked great and then just suddenly stopped working after my horrendous drive through Chicago coming home. Literally 50 miles of bad road and road construction.......and I got to pay $50 in tolls for the priveledge of driving on that.

Chicago roads are very bad......but sadly, it will get worse. Why?. Simple, they are deservingly BROKE! Back to your problem....Low fluid stoppage is instant......one minute it works, the next minute it doesn't! So, check that easy one first. On my coach, the pump and reservoir is in the 2nd bay from the rear, driver's side. Rook

The resevoir and the solenoid are up front on my coach behind the grille. I emailed the manufacturer again and asked how to determine full and what kind of fluid goes in there. Haven't heard back yet. Hopefully tomorrow.

Typically if the jacks are fully retracted the reservoir fluid level should be up to the full mark. Generally the full mark is the fill plug, you put fluid in until it starts coming back out the plug. It must be done with all jacks up.

Well, jacks are up. There look to be two bolts on the top of the resevoir 180 degrees from each other. I'm not sure if one if a fill the other comes out to ask as a vent or what. Hopefully the tech support guy will clue me in.

Well after redoing all the connections on the solenoid and batteries, the jacks are working again.

Only now after checking over everything, I see that one of the front stabilizers is leaking. So now I'm going to have to address that. I found the rebuild kit. Just gotta find instructions on how to take it apart. Thanks all.
