HWH solenoid

I have the HWH straight line 310 leveling system on our 2001 Journey32T. The left front of the coach will go off level after it sets for a day or two. I found that the hydraulic fluid is leaking out of the solenoid where the two wires come out. I tied a sandwich bag around them and have collected a few tbs. of fluid. Does it sound like I need to replace the solenoid and if so does someone know the procedure or have a link? Thanks, Gene in Idaho.

Is this the black painted brass fitting that screws directly into the jack itself. If so, this the jack position sensor. not the solonoid. There is a simple o'ring under the lip of this that is easy to change.

This is a solenoid that is connected near the hydraulic fluid reservoir. There are two on each side. They are 3 1/4" long and 1 1/2" wide and each have two wires coming out of them. Thanks for your reply. Gene.

HWH 310 solenoid

This is one of four solenoids connected near the reservoir (two on each side). It has two wires coming out of the end and that is where the fluid is leaking. The solenoid is 3 1/4" long and 1 1/2" wide. They are not the ones with the "T" valve handles.

Give the folks at HWH a call--they should be able to answer your questions and get you the replacement parts if needed. They have a good reputation for customer support.

I would remove the solenoid and check the O-rings. Fluid would have to get past them in order to get into the solenoid itself.

I changed mine out with a kit from HWH, but you may be able to find a replacement from local hardware store.

I agree Hwh is the place to call. Just call them and in my experiance they call back and walk you thru the problem. They determine the problem and the fix.

I think you did the right thing going with O-rings from HWH. The ones at the hardware store are likely to be neoprene, which probably won't like the hydraulic fluid.

I had a solenoid leaking severely where wires exit solenoid. Purchased new design from HWH Replacement Parts - Stuart's Services
These folks are very helpful over the phone. Part arrived quickly and was a simple change out. They will walk you through it over the phone if you need advice. Good luck!

I did order the new solenoid valve from Stuart's. They sure seem expensive for what they are but I suppose if we're gonna play we gotta pay. It looked different than the OEM because they have added a release valve lever to replace the 1/4'" release nut. I replaced it today and it worked out great. Thanks to all who have steered me in the right direction. Gene in Idaho.
