Power Gear Hydraulic Jack Problem
This trip was great so far except for this problem with the hydraulic jacks. It started a couple days ago when I tried to bring up the jacks, which is a Power Gear system on a 2000 Fleetwood Southwind, 36 ft. As soon as I pushed the retract button, they came up a tiny bit and then nothing. No up, no down, it would only turn on. I discovered the yellow wire pin in the main connector near the pump was broken. I clipped the wire on each side of the connector and crimped it together and all was fine, till I reached my destination today and was starting to level. When trying to bring the jacks up, exactly the same thing again. All that worked was the power button on the box. I still had power at the harness, but pushing a jack down button would not get power to the blue wire to the pump solenoid, so I cut that wire as before and crimped it together, and now the pump will activate when pushing a jack down button, but nothing happens. I thought it might be the dump valve solenoid, which tested fine when I removed it, but doesnít seem to activate when put back in place with the 2 wires going to it. Might anyone have suggestions? All fuses are good. Pump runs, but jacks wonít go up or down. Nothing was loose down there. I even bypassed the connector to the dump valve solenoid but that didnít work, so Iím thinking the green wire that was in the connector might be the issue, as the red wire to it has power. I wasnít sure if the green is a ground or a control wire, assuming it gets itís ground from contact with the valve itself. Hoping someone with more electrical know how might have the answer. Thanks.
