She said she has had that problem before and when she took the coach in for repairs they told her is was normal for the jacks to start dropping when it got cool outside.
In order for me to get them back up I had do drop they down and was then able to retract them.
The rear jacks did not leak down, just the front. Is this normal or should I tell her to take it in and get the problem repaired?
Cold weather does funny things
I would check a few things
1. Hydraulic fluid levels check it as per the manual for that RV.
( all are different )
2. I would put the jacks down once a month, then maybe 1/2 day and put them back up, keeps the internal seals moist.
3. Make sure when you put them up they are completely up, sometimes they need a very small amount of WD-40 wiped on the jacks to clean and lubricate it. Not much, a thin barely moist cloth or paper towel.
4. Power Gear recommends if you are near the ocean, then wipe the jacks weekly with WD-40.
My guess there is a solenoid that might have got a bit cold. If it isnít adjusted Perfectly you can get Jack drop.
Believe it or not, elevation above 8,000 ft will affect Jacks and make them slip due to air bubbles in the Hydraulic fluid.
