Power Gear problem fixed

Thank you Graig1959 for your suggestions. Clifftail, thanks for the link to download the manual to my computer so I will always have it handy. wa8yxm you were spot on when you said the float in the tank is what activates the jacks down light(this was not in the manual). I purchased a multiuse quart pump to fill the tank with fluid without spilling. The result of a proper fluid level, resetting the control, and cycling the jacks a few times means everything is working great. It is wonderful to have gained a support group available almost immediately as we start traveling around the country in our motorhome. Again everyonethanks for the quick response.

There are two manuals for your jacks,, I have the "Advanced" one (the service manual) which is where you see photos of the float and such I'm not sure it describes operation though.

That, I found out the hard way.

NOTE: in an emergency if you can identify the connector, and if it uses flat 2 connectors, You can unplug the thing and just plug one pin back in,, That will disable the sensor. NOTE: Keep exposed pin away from metal parts. Or make sure the exposed pin (The one where the metal is exposed) is the one that does NOT go to the tank. (That one is not hot).
Home is where I park it!
