Power Gear Levelers fail to extend fully to level coach

2001 Fleetwood Expedition Motorhome

Our Power Gear levelers will extend and retract and put enough pressure to stabalize but will no longer extend fully to level the coach. About 3 yrs ago they stopped working and we replaced the motor and it worked fine for about a year. We do have a leak in the left rear but it is a small leak and doesn't deplete the reservoir at all. The repair shop didn't seem to think we needed to repair the leak since it was so small.

We read about using transmission fluid stop leak and tried that for the leak but it didn't work. We drained all the fluid out of the reservoir and refilled with new. We have been using them as stabilizers for about a year now.

We cylcled them numerous times in case we had an air bubble but that didn't help.

Does anyone have anymore suggestions?

Hello and . We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy the website and forums. Good luck, stay safe and keep us posted.
I am sure you have tried operating the system on an un-level grade but my question would be does the system perhaps show the coach as being level? Regardless a zero point reset might be in order. Do you have the manual to go through the procedure? If not I believe you can download it from Power Gear. Good luck and let us know how you do.

Zero Point Reset

The jacks are manual and don't stop when the coach is level. It has option for lowering the front, rear, and left/right on the rear only. I have never heard of a zero point reset but will look it up to see if it applies to our model but it doesn't sound like it.

If the system is not automatic and the pump runs but there is no movement of the pistons, then you have a hydraulic issue. Could be bad valves, most likely the shuttle valve inside the manifold.

If the seal is not cut, try using this and only this product. Add each time you need fluid.
