    Paul,
    Hope you can help with this problem. My best friend and I are trying to get his 1990 Holiday rambler ready for a trip in January. Leveling jacks would not respond at all through series 400 hwh paddle switch jacks. We have removed the control board and using momentary switches have all jacks responding. Not sure how to handle the stabilizer solenoid. Since we are going totally manual would it be ok to just not connect the stabilizer solenoid ?? Also plan to use switch to break +12 volts instead of ground to pump relay. I guess wires will be around 12 to 14 feet from switch to relay. will this be ok if we use heavy enough wire. What gauge?? Thanks so much, Jerry

    Paul,

    Thank you so much for responding to my phone call yesterday. That was a big help. We went on down the road to Phoenix with DW periodically pressing the "Raise" button to get us to ride height. The drive-ability, tracking, and handling was almost normal.
    Our plan is to continue to Tucson this morning. I spoke with Premier RV in Tucson yesterday afternoon and they are going to see if they can get us in today to look at it, if nothing else. If they can't do anything soon, they agreed to refer us to a truck shop.
    If you have any suggestions for a truck shop in Tucson, please let us know.
    Again, thanks for taking time to call us back and give us the benefit of your expertise.
    Best,

    Dave

    Hello, Paul. I have posted a problem with the HWH system on my 2003 Alpine Coach today. Could you respond with your opinion, please? Thanks.

    I pm'd you with a problem about my slide out, HWH powered, not retracting. You said "check the switches". You were right on. Pulled the main toggle and a wire had just pulled loose. Easiest fix I've had on this thing. Appreciate the help. Thanks

    Thank you. I have a friend who is a retired electrician coming over for the 4th. That brat isn't gonna be free. Just got to get him out there before he has too many beers.

    You seem to be the go-to guy for HWH stuff on here. Bought a 2002 Rexhall Vision last Nov. and have had to replace almost every damn thing on it. Slide out had worked fine until today when it wouldn't retract. Had to release the valve pressure and ratchet it in by hand. Switch just makes a clicking sound when retract is pushed in. Pretty vague I know but any pointers and most likely suspects would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    AzPete,

    Recently asked for your assistance in a 325 series HWH jack issue and your suggestion worked. I had the rf jack solenoid replaced and the jack works.
    I am now having an issue with lf jack dropping about 1/4-1/2 inch when I travel on long stretches of somewhat rough highways. This of course causes the jack down alarm to screech. What is the most consistent reason this slight dropping occurs? Do I need to have the solenoid replace on this jack also?

    Thanks

    Thanks for responding to my message regarding a Hydraulic leveling Jack leaking down. Here are the details:

    A 2003 Mountain Aire with the 610 series Hydraulic leveling system.

    The problem: Under load the left rear jack retracts a couple of inches overnight, no external leaks.

    From what I've read here, it sounds like a solenoid valve is leaking back. I don't know if there's a check valve that can cause this. I sucked the fluid out of the reservoir and it was clean ATF.

    Questions:
    What would be the fix? Replacement and/or cleaning? description of parts required?
    Is ATF acceptable or HWH fluid the way to go?
    Any tips on work required, I'm reasonably handy with tools.

    Any advice is most appreciated.
