HWH Hydraulic Stuff - Slides n Jacks
I just wanted to share this with anyone who is experiencing issues with leaks to your rooms and/or leveling jacks...
My new to me 02 had a few leaks from hoses that went to my bedroom and the living room slides.
Also was having a front jack not retract issue....
I had asked a local HWH service place to look into leaks, said he would not touch it, I did have one jack that a seal got tucked and screwed it up and they did replace that.
After several months of talking to local to me folks, seems no one had staff or time or patience to address my concerns.
I broke down, called HWH, scheduled an appointment in late July for an onsite at HWH for 3rd week in August. About a 5 hour drive for me.
Arrived the night before Monday, they have electrical hook ups, no water or sewer, for you to spend the night in your rig if you have an appointment 1st thing in AM, mine was Tuesday.
It took them most of the day Tuesday to replace several fittings and rerun new hose, check fluid levels and test. Also got some great advice, make sure you keep MH running when putting jacks down and pushing room slides out and in, and make sure that you allow 3-5 seconds extra on the room and jack switches - pressure is good. So when sliding out a room, even after it stops, hold that switch a few more seconds, same when you retract. I was also instructed to make sure you have all jacks down and pressurized when leveling, and do NOT fully extend jacks - use blocks etc, if you extend them too far, they can misalign and will cause issued when retracting the jacks.
Total cost was WAY cheaper then expected... $650 for repairs.
I am literally a happy camper - no leaks, and all is dry now.
They finished my job later than they had hoped, I was first in and last out, met many fine folks in the lobby while I waited... but had to spend one more night due to storm and timing of my returning....
