Angry Power Gear Jacks Not Working 97 Bounder 34V

Well spent 4200 last fall on new brakes, shocks, wheel bearings, belts and hoses, now the Power Gear Jacks stopped working!
Worked fine last fall when I parked it for the winter. Fronts went down, rears wouldn't, retract, rears went down fronts wouldn't, retract and now only a clicking sound when then buttons are pushed.
Green power light on, batteries up, fluid level up, float switch properly adjusted.
Read many posts about tapping the assy with a hammer, tried that several times while the wife pushed the buttons, nothing, natta, zip!!!
Pulling what hair I have left out.
Thanks in advance.

Sounds very much electrical to me, possibly ground. There are power gear manuals listed in the [more] pull down above. They will give you the information needed to solve your problem. Good luck.

Sounds like you need to test the pump.
Issues retracting - those can originate from worn springs, dirty gear, or they can be worn out rams... I've had two RVs that were both about 10 years old, both required work to the leveling systems.

Typically not terribly hard to do yourself on the pump side. Removing the rams can be more challenging, but it sounds like you've got a power or pump problem..
