I just had a one jack repaired. On this last trip the alarm would not stop even though the jacks were completely retracted. What do I need to look at first?

OB Bear...
Welcome to iRV2! I am sorry to hear about your jack problem and I don't have an answer but I have put a shortcut down to MH Problems so others may be able to help you.

You may also want to head down to the Country Coach forum...and ask for some "karma" while you are there.
Again.. welcome to iRV2...please visit & post often!

G'morning OB Bear: We encountered same problem on our rig back in Williams, AZ some months ago. R. front jack alarm would NOT shut off even though the jack WAS fully retracted. Pretty uncomfortable driving with that blasted alarm on, so we called HWH and they talked me through disconnecting that alarm until we could get in to have it serviced. For what it's worth, here's what they had me do. With the jacks retracted AND when your rig is aired up so ya can have the room to reach the area atop the jack cylinder (the housing the jack stand retracts in to) you'll see a group of wires probably bound by a nylon quick tie. They had me cut that tie so the small group of wires were able to be somewhat separated and among these wires was a small, in our case black, plug or disconnect which they had me unplug. We just left it unplugged and this did NOT affect extending or retracting the jack and wires did NOT dangle to interfere. THIS effectively silenced the alarm so we could travel in peace. The jack still worked although the extended red warning light on the driver's control panel will not show when that jack is extended so MAKE SURE you eyeball that the jack is retracted BEFORE hitting the road after being parked. Then at your convenience, schedule a time to have alarm fixed. Talk to HWH for help...it'll likely be under warranty although I don't know the age of your rig. Hope this at least get ya on the road.
