Power Gear (Power Level) Hydraulic Unit

I can hear clicking from the controls in the coach to the unit under the hood, but the jacks won't go down. Fluid level is good. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I have a 2005 SeaBreeze LX with probably the same unit. The is a 12v breaker in the breaker panel for the jacks. Might check that. Also what lights are lit on the jack control panel when you power it on? Should only be the power light. If Please Wait or Engage Park Brake is on that is your problem.

Thanks, yes only the power light. I'll check the breakers first. Any chance it's a fuse or a transfer switch? I was thinking no on the fuse since I'm hearing it click.

These are actually complicated systems. If it is clicking you are probably right about the fuse. I attached a manual that might help.

Thank you. If I can't solve it, I have this to share with somebody that could. I've seen this online but haven't had much time to dive into it.

Tried today and the unit worked. I can't explain it other than it sat for 24 hours after a fluid fill and it works fine. I did nothing different than I usually do to power it up. I then lowered and retracted them 3 or 4 times to get the fluid moving. Checking fluid level again in a day or two.

More times than not our RVs can be temperamental. Glad to hear you are level again.

If you have an intermittent problem like this, check all of the connections to the main power unit, positive, negative and all the plug in connections. Chances are that you have an intermittent connection issue that will pop up and do it again at the most inconvenient time. Good luck 👍.

I forgot to mention that it could be temperature sensitive, when things are cold they contract, and when they warm up they expand. Might have something to do with it as well. Again, good luck.

I had a similar problem
I was told to grease the jacks they have little nipples that accept a grease gun . And clean the down tubes with silicone. I did this and they started working smoothly again. This should be done every 25 cycles.

(Likely) SOLENOIDS ARE BAD. They can CLUNK and not connect. You can buy replacements from $8/ea to $70/ea, both will work, higher $$= silver contacts= more rated cycles (double that of copper), but cheaper may last 10-yrs past when you sell rig, or only last a year/two? MOST JACK/ SLIDE problems related to LOW battery or loose/ corroded connections.

Thanks, all good now. They're working but I do have a leak at one jack. Sprayed pistons only. Still need to crawl under and investigate.
