if the oil reservoir is full it may be the sensor on the tank.

The reservoir sensor is what activates that beeping signal.

You know y'all keep saying that, but there are no sensors on the jack reservoir. Only a pump with 2 lines and that's it. At the moment I'm suspicious That it's the left front hydraulic jack. There are no wires for a safety switch on the parking brake, only air bag dump. I disconnected the alarm for the time being.

Clarify please. Did this problem just start, popping up from nowhere? On my coach, the tone you're hearing is the transmission alarm, indicating that the parking brake has been set with the coach in gear, or that the coach has been put in gear with the brake set. It almost seems your switch has been wired backwards.

Its important to know just what these alarms are supposed to be telling you. My jack alarm is a constant high pitched tone. In my coach, the jack alarm is NOT saying a jack is down, it is saying at least one jack is NOT FULL UP. Big difference.

By looking at the video, you have the old style HWH jacks. Each jack has an individual sensor. I don't remember if they are normally open or closed switches, ( I believe normally open ) but disconnect one at a time and short the terminals at each connection going toward the frame and when you find the defective sensor the alarm will stop. I would start with the suspect jack, ( you say the left front).

I think camper33 has it. I had avery much similar problem on my Luxor, the HWH sensor had aproblem. I bought a new sensor, but no satisfaction. It turned out it was the magnet inside the cylinder leg had fallen/broken loose. I ended up having to take the cylinder apart. It is much easier than it initially looked. As camper33 said job 1 is to find which jack is giving you lip. You can disconnect the wires from the sensor to quiet down the alarm system. The actual sensors are just a magnetic switch that are activated when the jacket is pulled up fully. Inside the cylinder there is a little metal piece that sits on the piston to activate the magnetic switch. HWH tech is really helpful if you have more problems.

If you have power gear jacks and the sensor (A float switch in the fluid tank) is not happy the panel should say JACKS DOWN *
That is the light should be on.

A problem with Power Gear jacks is that float valve, they did not put enough "headroom" in the tank so since Dextron III expands faster then the tank when it gets hot, come August, 100+ in the shade, the fluid expands and the tank overflows

Well it's not August today, and it's not 100+ in the shade so the fluid "Contracts" as does the tank, only the fluid contracts faster and you end up low on fluid.
