Thanks for the reply.
I will get underneath it tonight when I get the ramps under her again.
(Please note these ramps are made from 12" X 12" rough cut 6 ' timbers cut at an angle. They are super safe to use.)
I will first try lubricating the pivot points to see the results. The batteries in the Motor Home are all less than 6 months old so they are in great shape but I will try lowering them with the engine running if the lubrication thing doesn't work.
I also have to figure out how I check the hydraulic fluid level in the tank as the thing is located right where impossible to see meets no freaking way you can look. I just purchased a computer probe viewing thingamee and will try to see if I can see the levels with that thing.
I do believe designers stay awake a night dreaming up new ways to frustrate us owners.
DW claims we could fund our trips by selling ring side seats when I attempt repairs.
