Powergear jacks?

I went through this with the pace arrow too, and I had everything ever written about power gear jacks saved to my laptop, and I can't find a spec of it...

2008 monaco, powergear automatic hydrualic jacks with 140-1226 control panel

There is no manual in the bag. My previous system on the old coach was manual. On this coach, automatic works, but levels a lil down in front and off to the right.
I can't get manual to work at all. Nothing happens when I hit the manual button. I don't see an indicator light ( don't know if there should be one) and no response at all when I hit any of the arrow buttons.

hey powergear has a new website!
And the first doc I found was mine.
http://powergearus.com/documents/Ops...evel_Rev0B.pdf

Solution 1. To go to manual operation, you have to hold the manual button down for a few seconds. When I did, I was able to level manually.

Solution2. The pdf above refers to a tip sheet #153 which explains how to zero out the automatic lewveling system. I'll search that out now.

I suppose I could search out the answers before posting here... but I didn't. Hopefully this is amusing if not informative.

found it. http://powergearus.com/documents/429.pdf
Procedure is complicated enough to printout before trying it.

ok. done. My driveway, downhill and off to the left, is too much for the automatic program, but leveling manually, when the powergear logo lights green, the coach is level.

Thanks for listening.

No, thank you for the recalibration link. When ever I'm backed in to a site with the slope toward the front, the rear jacks will not move at all if the incline is too steep. Hopefully, the re-cal procedure will help in this regard.

My touch pad is the same as shown and I've found I have to turn off the system after trying to self level in "Auto". I can't go from Auto directly to Man. After the system is turned off, I then can push the Man button for five seconds, and then I can do whatever the need is. Bob

I am new to this site, I joined because of a problem with my power gear systen. I do everything that I have always done but when the rear jacks hit the ground the fronts also go down. It seems to me that something is doing a bypass also when you go to level left to right the front goes up. if anyone can point me in the right direction I am sure it will help. I hate being ripped off everytime I go to a dealer its cost me a fortune and nothing is small its always a new system. its a power gear system

1998 bounder 34ft, chevey chassis, 4 leg 7.5 v8. When you ask elec or hydro I think it may be electric because you have to turn panel on and you here the pump when you lift.

If you hear a pump, it's hydraulic. Power Gear also makes (made?) mechanical jacks that are electric motor driven. Do you know which ones you have? Is there a hydraulic reservoir somewhere?

Have you gone to the PowergearUS website? They have a great technical library.

The tank, motor and control solenoids are all located just in front of the right front wheel. Make sure all wires are connected. It sounds as though you have a loose or missing ground wire. Here is a manual that explains all you ever wanted to know about your levelers. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15918372/Jac...ice_manual.pdf

thanks loulong, I almost think you may be right because the problem seems to have all kinds of misfunctions. I am going to the beach next week and right now I can manage to get the system to work enough to stabilize the coach as long as I am on level ground ( will be on a concrete pad) at the beach. I really dont want to mess with it right now last thing I need is to let the family down. The system does work (jacks,pump,etc) it just doesnt know what it whats to do. It more then likly is a wiring or control panel issue.
