levelers/slideouts question

We have pulled into a site and our jacks would not go down. Re-booting didn't fix it. Fluid levels are good. It's Sunday...I'll either have to call a mobile repair or go to an RV service place. IN THE MEANTIME, will it cause problems with my slideouts if my jacks are not down?

As long as your reasonability level there won't be a problem. Many Class "C" and Travel Trailers have slides and no jacks. If you have Air suspension, dump the bags.

What kind of rig? What kind of levelers? Some won't work with the key in ignition or try putting key in accessory position.

Jacks & slideouts

Do you idle the engine while dropping the jacks & extending the slides? My Sunrise likes it when I do it that way ( more volts ) good luck.

Depends on the rig and how its wired. Our Damon requires the engine to be running to raise or lower the jacks. Requires the engine off to move the slides.

In our Suncruiser the same motor lowers the jacks and moves the slides. Our motor failed last winter. It was easy to change and not too expensive. If you have the HWH system give them a call they were very helpful.

What does your owner's manual say? Ours says not to extend the slides until the coach has been leveled with the jacks, so if the jacks don't deploy then we won't be putting the slides out.
