HWH Jack Problem

As I was leaving the CG I stored my HWH (325 system) jacks and all went up and stored except for the DS rear which stopped 2" from being all the way in. I continued on our trip as there wasn't any danger of damaging the jack. Then the PS front jack extended about 1/2" as we were traveling. When we stopped for the night the only jack that would extend and retract was the DS front jack. Everything on the control panel lights as it should and I checked and/or changed out the fuses on the circuit board. I talked to HWH Tech and he wants me to recheck my fuses. I get the yellow led lights for the jacks but only get the yellow and red light for the front DS jack. Oh, right before all this happened I had to change the chassis battery but have double check that everything was hooked back up correctly. Any other thoughts on the problem? Sorry for the length of thread but wanted to get the info out there.

Have you checked the oil in the Jacks reservoir? If it has plenty of oil then try opening the valves on each of the small tanks and raise and lower jacks then close valves and try leveling again.

Good luck.

Hi The Bay I,
I have the same system as you do. What does your manual say based on the lights on the control board? I have found the description on the manual to be very accurate.

As to replacing the fuses, do it. I know it sounds dumb, but I have personally experienced where a fuse from the HWH checked good, but did not work in the HWH. The HWH tech said to replace the fuse and by golly the system worked. Absolutely unbelievable.

Good advice.

If, however, you replace a fuse and it immediately blows, then you have a bad solenoid.

Thanks for the replies, I'm hoping for a little warmer temps here in NW Ohio so that I can work on this. I will replace all the fuses and also check the level of the hydraulic oil. I appreciate the tip about if the fuse blows right away then it's a bad solenoid. I can't believe that 3 solenoids could go bad at the same time but you never know. I will give an update as soon as I get a chance to check it all out. Thanks again
