Leveling Jack Problem

I'm having a problem with my driver side rear Jack loosing pressure. I don't see any fluid leaking. I've tightened the manual valves. The fluid is full.
Any thoughts on possible reasons or things I should check?

These are RVA JII jacks

Put the jack down and then loosening the manual valve like you are using the manual retract method, this will force fluid back through valve and possibly dislodge any contamination in the valve. I had to do this and it solved the problem.

If this doesn't work you may have to remove the solenoid valve and check O-rings etc.

Here is a link to RVA site for parts.

I extended all the jacks and retracted them using the manual valves. Then I followed the RVA website trouble shooting by extending all the jacks, cleaning them and spraying them with WD40. Then I extended and retracted them all 3 times to bleed any possible air. Now all the jacks hold solid at their extended lengths.

Thanks for the advice.

I have found that mine does this when the front jack is extended a lot. Try adding a 4" pad under that jack or any jack that has to be extended a long ways.
