Hydraulic leveling not working

I'm looking at a 1998 Bounder MH. It has hydraulic leveling that does not work. When you turn the switch on the green light comes on, but nothing else. No clicking noises or noise from the pump. Any ideas that this may be and what interventions I might try first? Thanks, again.

If this is a Power Gear system, make sure emergency brake is on and that the coach battery disconnect switch is in connected position.

First step is to read the fine manual. Some systems the engine must be running for the system to work, some want the engine off, The parking brake must be set and the transmission in park on many systems.

Beyond that you really need the owner's manual and the service manual on your hard drive, Find out what system you have and either go to the manufacturer's web page or post and folks here will provide a link as they did for me.

There are many things that can go wrong, Though "NO OPERATION" is one of the easiest to diagnose hands on.. It can be a real pain "Long distance"

The next thing you need to know is where they hid the dang thing.

NO CLICKS, suggests blown fuse or bad control system but,, the key word is "Suggests" ton of other possible answers as well.

I have a HWH system, had the same symptom, and on mine it turned out the pump solonoid was shot. I jumped across it and the pump ran, quick trip to an auto parts store, problem solved

If you find the pump for the jacks you may find a fuse in one of the wires. Make sure your house batteries are charged.

My fuse was in the control panel on the floor, and on mine if the green light comes on the fuse is good.
