hydraulic levelers

Good day, this is my first time threading so here I go!!

I have a 2005 Monico Simba and I have a problem with my front right jack. It seems to be hanging lower than the rest of the jacks. also when I try to engage the levelers by depressing the parking brake I cant get the parking brake light to come on, hence the jacks will not engage. I do know that the parking brake works.. any help,would be appreciated.. thanks

Frenchie

We all help each other glad to see you here

Now for the issue there is a button on the E brake and has a wire on it the pedal has to push it in when it is up to turn the light off push the pedal down and try to move the switch they will get tarnished and break connection, can also try to push and release it to make it pop and sometimes it will clear it. If the jacks start working spray with silcone to lube them

What brand of leveling system do you have on the Simba? Power Gear? HWH? Atwood? Hydraulic or electric?

I'm guessing the jacks are hydraulic and have springs on them toh pull the leg back up once the hydraulic valve is opened. The spring may be weak, or the ram may be dirty enough that it needs extra pressure to pull it up. Some brands have a grease fitting on the jack leg and need an occasional shot of grease.
