HWH jacks not going to vertical.

I have a niggly problem with my HWH system. yesterday I cured a small leak problem and last evening when I put it back where I park it I tried using the leveling system and the rear worked perfect but the front jacks would not achieve vertical and started to extend at about 10 degrees off vertical.

Any ideas why this would happen. Unexpert advice suggests the system needs to be bled. Any other ideas.

BTW 1994 Winnebago Adventurer
manual operation self leveling system.

Check for leaking hose

Small cylinder rotates jack, could have leaky hose elsewhere, all on same circuit, or valve not working correct

There are no apparent leaks. That was my first problem that was already resolved. The jack not going vertical is the new problem. How does one locate and check this valve that may be sticking? How big a hammer does it take to fix the sticking valve?

Should be a manifold full of valves and hoses.

Plug in connectors and blade fuses in rubber holders.

This valve will be different spot, 4 in a row for the lift, seperate one for the " kick down".

You can have a helper flip the switch while you wiggle wires.

If HWH they have great support, get copy of manual and it will lead you in correct direction

Reseat all electrical connectors and fuses several times.

I tried that and even threw in a reading from the Longshoreman's Profanity Gazette and neither helped at all.

Dunner's first rule of electrical trouble shooting. Reseat, reseat, reseat. For mechanical item... hit it, then hit it with a bigger hammer. Hope HWH can solve your problem.

Talking

If you do not make progress then get a larger hammer as different language has not worked ;-)

Torching a bottle jack in front of your coach may imply what is next if it does not behave...

Eleven in what time zone? I'm usually asleep by eleven and miss all you films.

If I knew what time zone, I can now DVR it. How long are the? Are they in HD. Are they in stereo? Are they in color?

Do you have straight acting or kick down levelers?

The straight acting have a pivot point built in and may or may not go straight down. The kick down ones should be straight as I remember from what my parents had.

Mine are attached to the frame at the top of the jack unit and are supposed to swing down 90 and then extend to raise the unit. They start extending at about 80 and try jacking at this angle.
