I have noticed a lot of people having the same problem with their jacks as I am having. My jacks operate from the same reservoir as my slide outs is this normal?

Donald, if you would provide more information on your unit, it would be easier for the members to respond.

I don't have hyd slides, however I am surprised the jack system capacity is large enough for both.

I have two hydraulic slide outs and one electric.. I have power gear jacks. All are run on the same unit. I was wondering if this is normal. I am having trouble with the jack light comming on indicating that the jacks are down.

I take it you place the jacks up and you are say driving and the warning light comes on?? Could be as simple as low hydraulic fluid level. If not that possibly the fluid level sensor is out of adjustment. There is also a float sensor that could be faulty. I'd check fluid level first. For the record, hydraulic fluid is supposed to be changed every 2 years on the Power Gear set-up.

Donald, can you provide the # off the touch pad? This will help me to pull up the serviec manual on the system in your coach. This newer system from Power Gear does have a larger resevoir and many solenoid valves and hoses to incorporate all of the hydraulics into one unit. Make sure all rooms and leveling jacks are retracted and verify that the resevoir is full. The warning light now, works off a pressure switch instead of the float switch or sensor previously used. This pressure switch is on the end of the manifold where the motor is. You can check to be sure the wire to this switch has a good connection. Once I can determine which system you have exactly I can get back to you with more diagnostics.
