Question My levelers sticky too

I have been searching and searching the net when I found this thread [ Sticky leveling jack ] and was delighted to find such wonderful knowledge at my finger tips.

I also have had a right troublesome passenger side HWH leveler. It was sticky and we would 'encourge' it as described in the above post. However, now, after my son was a bit rough with it...the whole system seems to have rebelled. The jacks are now up and won't go down. I believe the jacks we have are 325's and I've got the manual but what is happening now is not mentioned in the troubleshooting guide and wil probably call Tiffin or HWH if I can't figure this out with your help.

At this point, like I said they don't budge...the lights come on the touch pad and when level buttons are touched I can hear what I believe is the solelnoid opening and closing.

Long winded this morning....sorry...hope someone might have some suggestions. Thank you!!

oh ps...tried changing out the fuse...no go!

Just another little addendum: Turns out that one of the battery clamps on post was loose. Could it be that the system shorted out....or ?? and tripped a fuse. Have been reading the manual and it emphasizes the need for a continuous feed. Anyone??

Welcome to irv2.
What ever your son used did not help.
You should have maybe another post on your battery to use.
The jacks usually work off the chassis battery the same one to start your engine.
If you know where the fluid tank for HWH system is there is a fuse feeding the motor and one on some fuse panel also for the coach.
You need some information in your profile as to what coach you have, gas, DP.
Your system is located here and it asks if air dump, straight acting and so forth.
If its a gas coach you have this system, I hope your son did not interfere with the leveling sensor, you will need a dealer.

Hi cmkirk,
Have someone stand near the HWH pump. When you attempt to lower the jacks, dose the pump start? If not, you'll need to determine why. If none of the jacks will deploy and the pump does not start, gut feel says a fuse is blown or a ground has been lost. Both are notorious HWH problems.

In the manual, is there a picture of a control board? If so, there should be an explanation of the lights and what they mean. I have found this to be a very good diagnostic tool.

If you get a meter and have power to the motor, consider running a ground wire from the motor to the chassis.

Lastly there are fuses on the control board (if you have one). They will need to be checked.
