Power Gear Jack problem update

Well, some good news to report. After sending controller board out for repair, we were advised it was unrepairable and none were available. I decided to order parts to make a manual leveling system, basically a fused panel with four dpdt switches to individually drive each Jack. Since I was waiting for parts, I decided to reinstall old board and give it one more try. I first drove the jacks by directly applying power to the Jack connectors, LF 2” RF 4”, LR 6”, RR 8“ then held my breath and pushed retract all, nothing happened. Then crossed fingers, mini prayer and pushed Auto.... A MIRACLE, IT AUTO LEVELED., RETRACTED, AUTO LEVELED AGAIN . Divine intervention? Maybe a bad connection? The ONLY other difference, I cleaned the magnets. All seems to be working as it should. Time will tell. Moral to the story, never give up.

Afternoon sir, I'm having the same problems with my right rear jack. I'm going to replace the magnets to see if that does the trick but where is the circuit board located on your rig? I have a 2007 Fleetwood Providence and I have wires and boxes everywhere.

My 07 Discovery has the jack controller in the compartment the inverter is located in. It's to the left of your converter.
Suggest you familiarize yourself with your "wires and boxes"

Power Gear Jack problem

First, I would check to see if problem is isolated to the one Jack. You can cycle the Jack be applying voltage directly to the Jack connector at the Jack, somewhat difficult due to location. Or you can go to controller pcb , unplug connector- should be labeled and apply voltage to the connector + to red, - to black should extend the Jack if it’s working correctly. Use a 15 amp fuse in the circuit to avoid “trouble” if the fuse blows, probably a bad brake that needs to be cleaned or replaced. If the Jack works, next examine the magnet for a coating of dirt.
The board in my coach is located on the passenger side near the water pump
It’s mounted on the overhead of the compartment.
