A new problem.

We bought a 2003 Holiday Rambler Vacationer this spring and everything worked flawlessly on our first time out. This time..... not so much.

We got to our campsite just before dark and the leveling jacks won't deploy. They worked fine at home.

I've checked to make sure I'm doing everything by the book. We even read the instructions step by step and followed then to the letter for the Power Gear jacks.

When I press the on/off button nothing happens.

When I turn the ignition key the on/off light flashes green but nothing.

Any ideas? Your help will be much appreciated.

My jacks will work with the ignition on and the engine off. The shift selector has to be in park.
My MH has a separate cable from the positive post of the house battery (s) going directly to the hydraulic jack pump motor. You might check your house battery connections and cables to be sure all is clean and tight.
