Hello,
noticed just back from a trip that there was a small puddle of fluid under my Power Gear leveling system. It appears to be comming not from the hose connections but from a copper/brass looking small cylinder just beside the hoses and is marked "Nason xm-69 1400R/WL" there is a black and a blue wire coming off this piece and it is threaded into the tank. The leak does not seemto be from the threaded area rather than the top where the wires are.

Any one have the tech experience to give me an idea of what I'm looking at?? My dealer is 4 hours away. The entire unit is the Power Gear leveling system Hydro power unit 1.6 gal size.


Thanks for any input,
Jim

Hi and thanks for the response...I started there before posing my question as I cannot seem to find what I'm looking for even in the tips section.

Thanks

This is probably the switch to tell the controller that the jack is down and may have an internal leak connected to the hydraulic ram. A new switch should correct the problem but I would verify that with Power Gear first.
