Slides and Leveling Jacks won't respond
Hi All,

We have a 2006 Itasca Ellipse 40KD Motorhome with hydraulic slides and leveling jacks that will not respond.

When pushing the slide in button you can hear a slight click but no response from any slide. Leveling Jacks will not go up or down.

We have added 2 quarts of hydraulic fluid, have manuals but cant find the fuse. Took chassis batteries and had them checked but they were good. Tried the battery boost but that didnt help.

Any ideas?

Our Class A has to have the parking brake applied before either of those systems work. Is yours the same way?

look for a circuit breaker in line near your house batteries, might have a round pop-up button or a flag arm that pivots out. had it happen to me, also generator wouldn't crank.

If your system is HWH , the main 40 amp fuse on my system was within a foot of the pump/solenoid. Inline.

Mine looked like this; photo below;, lit up the control pad , but wouldn't pass enough power to operate anything.

If I have a picture showing location I'll post it.

EDIT: If you added fluid , when the jacks were extended , it will spill out as they retract, and overfill the reservoir..

Re-edit ; second photo ; zip tie; shows the location where the fuse was and I installed a 12 volt circuit breaker.

Ginny; if your slide drive leveling system isn't HWH, please add that info to your post , as a few of us could be barking up the wrong tree .:whistling:

Thank you everyone for the advice. Yes it is HWH. Going to check some of the things you all mentioned and will update later.

Thanks again,

Purely a FYI consideration, but when our hydraulic slide wouldn't come in on our 5er about 17 years ago, those "supposedly in the know more than us", kept adding hydraulic fluid.

Finally when I went into the bedroom with bare feet I felt a wet carpet and huge stench of the fluid = turned out that manufacturers had put the hose under the bed slide out and over time with it going in and out had created a hole in the tubing = just saying in case it's none of the above, might be worth checking any bad placement caused by friction as was our case.
