Problem With Hydraulic Jack
 
Whew, great forum. Thanks for hosting it.

Hope this is the right place to post this problem with a 1985 Monaco hydraulic leveler, or two.

Last night the entire system seemed to collapse, causing quite a jolt to everyone. This morning the front levelers seem to be warped forward, though there is no obvious damage or broken parts or bent frames or misplaced hydraulics. Neither of the front levelers can be fully retracted, and they point forward rather than rearward as they did before. It can't be driven this way, so it appears that it will have to be fixed on site, by me, who is about as mechanical oriented as a EE (which I am, or at least started out as).

Rather than trying to describe this problem, pictures of the current condition have been posted at the following url:

It's a relatively painless process to create a free Shutterfly account to view these pictures, but if anyone wants to see them on an easier to access site like Photobucket, please let me know.

And thanks in advance for any possible suggestions, and particularly any possible solutions.

Sincerely,

John Knight

Just pour in tank you can also use trans. Fluid it appears you have kick down jacks that should have came up when jack came up they might need a little cleaning and greased at hinge joint you might try putting a board under them and lift.
