Hydraulic Jacks Beeping

The day after we bought our MH we took it to a General RV Center (we bought it at another General RV) and told them how it beeped, a lot, while driving. They said it was just the fluid needing to be topped off. That worked for our drive home, except the last few miles it did beep a couple times.
I had it in my drive way with the jacks down for a few weeks, then today i put the jacks up, waited for the "jack down" light go off then i turned off the control pad. I did a visual on the jacks and they were up, I also checked the fluid and it was up to the fill cap. It is a Power Gear Level Series but I guess it was bought out by lippert. I took it for a little drive and the beeping started again.
Any thoughts?

Depends on your model number. Here's a link to all of their service manuals.

Model number is P/N 140-1226. I saw that and even printed out the manual because I couldn't find anything in all the manuals they gave me. All it says in the trouble shooting it to make sure it has the fluid filled up for the beeping.

There has to be a level gauge on the tank and the connection could be bad or the sensor bad. I would start there.

Keep checking oil level, if there is air in the system from being very low on oil, every time you extend/retract the jacks it purges more air until it is all purged. In fact, that is how HWH jacks are purged of air.
Another reason for beeping can be the sensors that detect jacks are retracted, before turning off the system after jacks are retracted, wait a minute. This gives the hyd oil time to depressurize in the jacks and lines, which might be pushing them down enough to trigger the alarm.

The service department called and said they found the problem, was some kind of sensor that checked the fluid level. When I pick it up in a few days I’ll post exactly what it was..

Thanks for reporting back. Thats what it sounds like. There is a float switch that senses fluid level. If the internal switch is bad or the float is contaminated, its probably giving out false fluid low alarms.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.
