2005 Monaco Knight rear roadside jack wont extend.

Other RV owners have said this might be because the fluid is low. I've looked at the manual and can't find where the hydraulic fluid goes. Any help is appreciated. Thanks is advance.

Make sure the bleed valve to that jack is closed.

Working from memory. Seem like there was a three valve manifold on top of the pump. One for each jack. Their purpose was to release oil back into the reservoir in case of solenoid failure. Make sure all are closed tight.

As I recall, the pump was in the compartment behind the rear wheels on the driver side, the one with the round key.

OldGerman.....If your 05 is like mine, you should have a louvered door just in front of the left rear tire. It will take a round barrel key to open. Open the door and there should be another lock that opens the cooling unit which is part of your dash A/C. Behind that you'll see a large pump on the open floor of the compartment. There should also be two fuel filters and the other large filter is your air dryer filter.

The large pump, valves and tank will have three "T" handle knobs on the top. Make sure all of them are snug, (hand tighten).

If your Knight is like my Ambassador, it's in the front on the non-driver side. Producer in manual how to fill and test.

Did you find the pump yet?

If not, have someone run the switch to one of the working jacks and follow your ears to the motor.
