Curb side rear jack will not go down.
All other jacks work OK.
Any ideas ?

The power gear web site is at http://www.powergearus.com/. Under manuals at the top of the page, you can find the complete manual for your model, and I think it has troubleshooting info. I've also had good luck calling them for support, and my unit is out of warranty. I think you'll find their manual helpful.

royis, one thing you should check if the pump motors does run when you are trying to extend the left rear jack is the vlave "T" on the pump manifold. Make sure they are all closed; turned clockwise. If not this could allow the fluid back into the resivoir. If this does not corrct the problem let us know with a little more detail as to what is going on.

Check with PowerGear, as Fred suggests.

I see two possibilities: either the valve in the pump isn't opening for that jack OR the controller isn't engaging for that jack. You didn't mention which mdel PowerGear system you have, but in most the rear jacks are separately controllable and I think the console switches is where the two are ganged togther. Might just be a bad switch or loose wire.

There is an outside chance that something has jammed or damaged the jack itself and there isn't enough pressure to force it down. It's a pretty powerful ram, though, so that is unlikely. You would probably notice it if there was that much damage.
