PowerGear problems.

Recently my "Jacks Down" light will not go out after retracting the jacks. Sometimes it will go out but, takes 10-20 minutes. According to a trouble shooting guide I found, it's either:

LOW FLUID LEVEL - FILL TANK WITH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
FLUID SEE PAGE A3 AND TIP SHEET 140

FLUID SENSOR MISADJUSTED - SEE TIP SHEET 30, 54 OR 81 FOR FLUID
SENSOR ORIENTATION

FLUID SENSOR FAULTY - CHECK FLUID SENSOR FOR CONTINUITY*
WITH JACKS EXTENDED, IF NO CONTINUITY,
REPLACE SENSOR * : PRE 2001 MODELS,
RESISTANCE SHOULD BE NEAR ZERO. FOR
2001 AND NEWER UNITS, RESISTANCE
SHOULD BE NEAR 1 KW

My fluid level is fine. I can't find anything on " TIP SHEET 30, 54 OR 81 FOR FLUID SENSOR ORIENTATION" Does anyone have these or have experience with this problem?

I have had that problem, several times. Mostly all I do is add some fluid and the problem goes away. If it is cold weather, the fluid is thicker and sluggish. This condition will cause the alarm to sound also. As soon as it warms up, the jacks retract properly.

Be sure the fluid level sensor base has the point in the 6:00 position. Also verify that you have good clean connections. Good luck and keep us posted.

Apparently the fluid level was a tad low. After adding a bit, all is back to normal.
