After owning my "Previously Used" coach for 9 years, and Full-Timing for 8 years, we went to Moscow, Iowa and got our jacks replaced.
For two years we have been having trouble. Mainly with the front jacks, but sometimes with the back jacks too. We initially used a flat blade shovel to "scoop" under the jack, prying it up until it stopped buzzing. Then, we put landscape timbers under it so as not to have to raise them up so much. They we put down a 10x2 under the landscape timbers. They I went out and bought a hydraulic jack to jack up the jacks!
What is wrong with this picture??
Finally the DW said, "That is enough!" We were park hosting in Illinois and she figured out that it was not far to Moscow---Iowa.
We took it in to have it checked out. I had heard that it was $ 1,200 for a
The BAD news was that after checking them out, HWH said that all 4 jacks were "dead". The GOOD news was that they have rebuilt ones that they sell for $ 293.02 each. Or, they can rebuild YOURS.
We got there at 11:30 AM and though our appointment wasn't until early the next morning, they were able to go ahead and take us, since they had finished with another person early. They began after lunch, then worked about an hour over-time to finish us up, then suggested that we just "spend the night" at their place since it was late.
They charged us $ 293.02 x 4, plus 3 hours labor @$90/hour, plus I got 2 new sets of springs for my back jacks (I had already changed out my front in an attempt to fix 'em)
I didn't WANT
to spend the money, but the next morning when my "new" jacks just zipped up, I was a happy camper. They had NEVER
worked as well.
