Equalizer problem

Recently tried to level the MH (2005 Travel Supreme 40 DS04) and found a problem with the Equalizer system. Turned power on and tried Auto Level. Air dumped as it should then the jacks started down starting with the front left until all jacks in the red and grounded. Then the level process starts and the left front starts up and then the right front tries but doesn't raise the coach. Have tried to manually level and while I can lower the jacks on the left side, I can not manually lower the right side. I get what sounds like a warning buzzer in the control panel. I have checked fluid and while i could add a couple of ounces it isn't drastically low. Just installed new batteries (coach and chassis). Also tried with generator running. Will try to call Equalizer in the morning but wanted to get a little insight from the forum.

thanks

Macado,
You need to do an Equalizer system reset. The reset procedure is in the Equalizer Manual. If you don't have it, you can go to the Equalizer web site and download it.

The manual will tell you how to 'null' the system but it had to be level first.

The system has a safety built in to prevent the frame from twisting. It sounds like you were out of level with the left side down. It will allow you to extend the left jacks to bring that side up to almost level but we t let you extend the right which could take the bus out of level even more.

I've had it where it seemed very picky about me being out if level and insisted a set of jacks be extended further before it allowed the jacks on the other side to extend.

Does that sound like your situation?

Thanks to all for your insight. After speaking to the folks at Equalizer about the only thing left was a trip to shop. I have the older 1703 pad and it is obsolete now. Couldn't set the null because I couldn't control the right side jacks manually. (even though the automatic function would let them down and bring them up) And as the man at Equalizer said they can replace the platform but not cheaply. I do have a service plan so hoping that will help.

Make sure your ground coming off the battery to the chassis is good. It is behind the battery tray. A bad ground causes weird and numerous problems.
