Jacks leaking down

My neighbor has a 2022 Entegra Odyssey 27U. Today she called me and said she wanted to take her coach out and buzzers were going off because the jacks were part way down. I went over and the front 2 jacks were down around 2 or so inches. She told me when she parked the coach she did not put the jacks down. I did not ask how long ago that was. 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?

On anthem if you backed in. I myself need to put coach back in drive. For a moment. Before shutting it down. Or it will leak down. Slowly. Now this is my experience. Swenster my old buddy taught me this.

Were you friends with Tom? I sure miss him. We use to talk several time a month and see him every year when he came to Naples.

Itís normal to have to hit retract after the coach has been settings. Itís not normal for the jacks to have dropped down. It will take a long diagnose that issue because it must show up while at the dealership. I wouldnít mess with it unless it does it every time you turn off the coach.

Small world. That was Casey, his Golden retriever. Head for the Golf Cart and he was the first one in. Great dog.

Jacks issue Vision XL

I have encountered the same alarm when starting my RV. Pushing retract usually fixes it.

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.
