Power gear Leveling System

Our control unit when out on the Power gear leveling system. I have a older unit 2005 that starts with 500. I have been quoted over $700 for the power unit alone. I have been trying to find out if I change the controller and the touch pad to a newer model will my pump work? I know I would need to change the connector on my wiring harness for the control box to the touch pad. All the other connector match up. I think the only thing that needs to match is the control box and the touch pad.

You should start at the pump to be sure there is not a problem with the solenoids or motor first. Then, if they function properly with 12 vdc applied you could have a control problem that might be repaired as you think with replacement of the controller and touch pad.

I built my own controller, Send me a PM for information if you wish. it is 100% manual and slightly more flexible than the one that came with the RV. I like it better, It does, however, lack one feature the original had.. But I added 2 more to make up for it.
Home is where I park it!

Power Gear touch Pad and Control Board

My control board went out and I paid the 700 dollars for a new one. It is a new touch pad and control board in one unit. they give you new cables and you have to make a one wire change at your pump solonoid. I just got my new setup and have not had time to put it in yet, to much company this summer. Search for Power Gear new control board instructions and you should find the directions how it is installed and the diagrams for it.
You may have already taken care of this.

I read in a recent post of yours that you made a controller yourself to replace a broken one. I have a Power Gear Leveler control board 500210 that has stopped working. I have determined that the motor and the levelers still work (crossing wires, etc). I had seen that someone else had also made a simple board with 5 or so switches but I haven't been able to get a schematic. Could you tell me how you made yours and possibly send a diagram? Thanks, Rick

Power Gear Control


Thank you for your email about my control board. However I am not the one that built my own control board. There is another post on here that did build one and offers to help anyone.
