1993 bounder with hwh jack problems
hello everyone and thank you in advance for any suggestions that I will get!!!
I have a 93 bounder 34j, it has the hwh system with the kick down jacks, and a 4 stick controller with a seperate level indicator.
My problem is that the jacks don't seem to want to retract! I have been reading the forums, and I guess I am just a bit confused by all of the information.
I think I understand that the jacks retract with spring pressure only. Does retracting consist of Raising into the store position? or with the cylinder returning into the housing? That is my trouble, the jacks not only will not raise without me "rocking" the MH from side to side, they will not slide into itself, which makes it sorta tough to set up. The inner cylinder is sticking out almost 5 inches all the time, they will not go in unless I raise the MH on a jack and extend the levelers and then lower them onto a block or something like that.
Also combating this trouble, I think I have found the resivior for the fluid, its under the passenger side wheelwell, but man that will be tough to get to, and fill or even check the fluid level.
Where do I start? I have read about selenoids, bleeding the jacks off to retract, new springs, new jacks ETC I am very mechanical, well at least i dont like to pay anyone to do something that I can do myself, but if I need to take it somewhere I guess I will !!!
ANY direction will be greatly appreciated and I will try anything at this point!
