Unable to use the hydraulic Jack Circuit Board

I have power going to my 1994 Fleetwood Bounder curcuit board for my hydraulic leveling jacks, but when the curcuit board is pressed (the on/off switch) nothing happens ?? Any ideas? I just purchased this motorhome and the jacks are Milwaukee brand. Am I missing something here?

Yes it is in park. The parking brake automatically sets. Is there a safety switch? Thanks

Hi bikerdude,
Welcome to iRV2. It is a long shot, check the ground connection from the jack pump to chassis. Also, consider posting this in the Fleetwood Owners' forum. There you will get the largest Bounder owner exposure.

Power Gear makes notice to have the engine running and park brake set to operate leveling systems and slide out rooms. Check for electrical connections on the back of the touch pad, the level sense/controller and at the pump assmy. Verify that you have power feeding the solenoid and that the in-line fuse is good. Let us know as much info that you can as to what you find.

Jack solenoid

More than likely it's the solenoid under the hood and on the right as you face your engine. There are two that look identical, silver in color,and were known to fail.

If you are handy and can't buy a new heavy duty one, you can remove the top of the solenoid and turn the copper disc over. I can't recall which of the two controls the jacks.

Those two solenoids are controlled by the two switches,about head level on the left, as you exit your Bounder. Sometimes you can simply flip those switches on and off a few times and they'll engage. Once they start messing up, you really need to at least carry a spare solenoid.

Bikerdude,

I just experienced the same thing on my coach last week. First trip after the dealer had it in for repairs. Reach back behind the control panel and make sure the wire is attached! It should plug into the back of the panel, and if you reach back there and can run your hand across the back of the control panel and not feel the wire than it's probably come loose. After some searching I found the wire stuffed behind the fuse panel! The wire does not have a lot of play when plugged in, but I don't feel the tension was enough for it to have pulled loose and flown back behind the fuse panel on it own. Not saying the dealer was responsible, but I have a hard time imagining to any other scenario! Might be good to check that as well, just in case...

IMO, there IS no other scenario. And these scenario's are exactly why nobody I'm not familiar with personally touches my stuff but me, unless it's something I can't, or don't want to handle myself--and if someone ELSE does it, I watch.

That said-- if you've verified power to the board, and verified ground, and the board fails to respond to the on/off switch-- could very well be the board!

Jacks

I own a 1996 Bounder 34J on a Ford f53. We had the same problem. We had two RV service locations test the system and both said it was the control panel on the dash. Called Power Gear and they suggested using bottle jacks. There is a new upgrade which PG wanted $800, NO WAY. tried a used panel from a salvage yard. It was also no good. Finally found the upgade part on EBay for $200, brand new. Plugged it in and jacks now work. I do not remember the sellers name but I entered the part number from the panel and his site came up. The the panel off the dash and the number is on the back. Hope this helps

I found the vendors user name on Ebay. It's rvpsrtsmart. You can type Power gear jack parts, it should get you to his site. The part number for the panel on my 1996 Bounder is 500455 which replaced 500210. He has one for $199.99.
