Hi all, We're new to the site and to rv ing. We recently bought a 1989 Fleetwood Pace Arrow, in very good condition. However, beeing the age it is things are needing replacement. The latest is that one of the hydrolic levelers is not working. The other three are fine. The indicator light on that one not working does not light. All others do. Any thoughts??

I purchased a 1995 Southwind last year on ebay. I also had three of four levelers working. In the end, I replaced the control panel, one hose and 2 of the limiters (rust). It ran me about $600.00 but it all works fine now. Was worth it to me in the end.

Did you check for fuses in the control box? Or out near the pump/tank assembly?

If those are OK, what you could try is to measure the resistance of the solenoids. If they all measure fine, then swap wires from a working jack to the non-working jack. If the moves to a different jack, then the control box is probably bad. If it stays on the same jack, might have a stuck check valve in the hydraulic assembly. But first, it wouldn't hurt to check that the contacts in the connectors are all tight. Then squirt some contact cleaner on them.

Good luck.
