Has anyone had a problem with their levelers/jacks warning signal coming on while driving indicating that a jack has leaked down? I keep getting the signal on different jacks periodically and contacted HWH and was told to run with the jacks in the store mode when traveling. My concern is, am I doing any harm to my controls or jacks themselves?
Any ideas on this problem?

No problem. Just press store and drive. Frank

frank waldorf welcome to irv2
Make sure you have enough fluid in pump tank and also check a ground post on frame up front with muiltible white wires on it for loose nut dirty wire clips and clean connections. These come from your jack valve controls.
Frank enjoy the forums and post often.

I had the same problem and a tech at HWH suggested that I set the jacks to store as I finished up preparing my motorhome to leave and let the jack store self cancel - after about 5 minutes. I havn't had a problem since.

I have had that problem since the day I got my MH. Dealer check it a couple of times.

Like Frank says, just press the store button and keep on driving.

I don't worry about it to much because I can't hear the buzzer most of the time. Pushing the button is my wifes job.

Thanks to everyone for the information. It certainly makes me feel better about the information I received orginally.

Pushing the store button is what it says in my owners manual. It drove me nuts until I happened to actually read the manual.

Who knows, I might even learn a couple of things if I read all of the manuals.

Probably not.

As other have said, run in 'STORE' mode.

But, I have had a <span class="ev_code_RED">'Jack Down'</span> warning while driving. I cleaned lubed the jacks with silicone spray. This fixed all but one. The drivers side front still gave a occasional warning. But, with the help of HWH I replaced the 'magnetic switch' that sits on top of the jack and that fix it.

The customer support from HWH is nothing short of outstanding. I got returned calls as promised, the tech was knowledgeable and spot on with troubleshooting, parts arrived time, the bill arrived at a later date, I got follow up calls and last but not least I got a follow up to the follow up.

This was under warranty and I shipped the old part and invoice to Newmar for reimbursement. My labor was free. But, I saved a 6 hour round trip drive and at least a 1/2 day in the shop. The repair only took about 20 mins to complete.

I do not know how you can run in the store position. In order to turn on my system the vehicle must have the parking brake switch pulled and in the park position. If the vehicle is in the park position with out the parking brake switch pulled I get a red warning light.

I have had the activation warning twice, once on the PA turnpike northeast extension which is a very rough road really got my attention as I did not know if it was down a 1/2 inch or 12 inches. Later guessed the bouncing and slamming caused it the second was a relatively smooth road and when investigated could not really see a jack out of the store position. All jacks were sprayed with silicone when I got home.

Directions from HWH say run down highway in store position.

Which button do you push when you are ready to break camp and travel? Store, I'm guessing.
