The Jacks are still down. Lippert always says to add more fluid This works but the reservoir usually overflows a bit. Now the jacks are up and the tank is full. Put the jacks down and everything is fine. Try to retract and motor runs, then stops, add more fluid, jacks come up and tank overflows. Coach is parked on clean concrete and there are no visible leaks plus reservoir is full. Seems to me that the tank is undersized but would like to know if anyone out there has experienced this phenomenon and is there a fix.
not to mess you up even more
but my resivior in the tuscany will overflow about every 5th time the jacks go down and are retracted because it was blowing the cap off
I thought i had a leak and found it was from the fluid spraying back in the resivior, and making a mess as the lid lifted
so i zip tied the cap to keep it tighter in the hole. it still will dribble from time to time.
I think a bigger container would help as well.
