I have one of my big foot jacks that wont lift all the way up. It goes about 7/8 of the way but will not go all the way up. I jacked up the motorhome and let the jack all the way down to bleed the jack but this did not work still same problem. Any help will be appreciated. I have a 34 foot Georgie Boy Landay 2000 model.

Does the motor stop prior to it being fully retracted? if not, have you visually inspected the piston and foot area closely for damage or possibly obsruction? I doubt it but hopefully it is not bent. Please let us know what you find and what the fix is.

I made a mistake when I wrote the note. The jack wont go all the way down lifting the coach all the way up. It will lift until it tries to lift the tire off of the ground. It loses power and will not lift the rv up anymore

If you read the owner's manual you will find that Qudra suggests checking the fluid level every year. I usually need to add a little to most of mine.

So everyone one agrees that the way to go is to get the new 100 sq. inch pad 10 x10 Big Foot by Quadra complete system installed on all four corners.

Not sure that "everyone" is accurate; but I sure love mine. I have a friend with the HWH system and he likes them and someone else with the Power?? system and they say it is great too. I guess it all depends on your personal experience. The Quadra system is my first levelers so anything that allows me to push a button and the coach self-levels is wonderful.

I have a bad back and stacking wood or "lego-blocks" is a real pain...literally. I have been happy with mine so far and I hope they last me a long time.

I agree with SteveR about personal experience. I bought my first coach with BF on it and thought that was the way all levelers worked.

I blew off all the posts I read about HWH problems thinking they just didn't know how to operate or maintain their jacks. I didn't know until I <span class="ev_code_RED">personaly</span>experienced HWH on our current coach how poorly designed and manufactured they are. Operation and maintenance isn't the problem. Poor quality materials (cylinders and hoses) and poor design (return springs) are the problems I've personaly experienced.
