HWH Leveling Issue

I have a 34' 1994 PaceArrow with HWH leveling jacks. I believe they are the 110 series. There is 4 controls, the center two are bent at an angle, leveling/warning lights and a rocker switch all at the console.

Recently my front left jack is very slow to go down, even as it swings in place. But you can hear the electric motor really struggling and if you force it, eventually the motor will shut off - I'm assuming getting too hot and it's a safety feature. At this point, it's only lifted the coach 1-2" is all. The jack is quick to store, though.

Any ideas what to look for or replace?

Thanks!

i guess you don't have slideouts.
with all jacks fully retracted (and slides), check the hwh fluid reservoir. it must be close to full with type a dex 2 fluid. if it is not, the pump will pump air and really struggle. don't add fluid with a jack down or you will have a mess when you retract them.

No slides and the level is full. All other jacks work perfectly. Even now, I can full extend the rear jacks with ease - just did it to replace the rear brakes

my suggestion is for you to open the manual release valve on the solenoid for that jack and then close it. the valve may not be properly seated, allowing some fluid pressure to bypass from the pump back to the reservoir.
my solenoid release valves for the jacks are operated by a t handle. yours may be different.
you should be able to find a diagram of which valve operates which jack on the hwh website.

CALL HWH @ 800.321.3484 and ask for frank. he will eventually call you back, but unless you have spoken with him before and have a reference number it may take a couple of days.

I have no interest in playing games with companies, so I left a message today for a company called Stuart something rather - sent them an email over the weekend and they replied saying they had some questions to call, but they close at 3pm, so I had to leave a message. The recording said they woudl return my call, so we'll see if they do that tomorrow.

I'd like to get it fixed for the weekend, as I plan on boondocking this weekend and I can just about bet that the camp site won't be level.
