RE: Should I use leveling system for tire repair/maintenance?

most leveling systems are designed to be able to lift more than is necessary to raise the coach. so, yes you can, but for liability purposes, all leveling system manufacturers state in the warranty portion of the manual that that is not to done. you should always use jack stands or some safe blocking when you remove a tire. if it falls on you, you assume all cost.

RE: HWH

pirate, if you use the on line form. thats different from a call about how to service your system. someone will call you back, most of the time, the same day. they will quote the price, and the shipping cost at that time. the reason they have to call you back is that they do not store credit card numbers. there are a lot of federal regulations that apply, ans a lot of cost, when you do that. it takes a lot of experience to help someone over the phone. it also takes a lot of time, depending on the callers own expertise. calls can take 5 minutes, or sometimes an hour or longer. we dont cut a caller off, because he doesnt know what he needs. there is never a charge for this diagnostic service either, even though we have 15 to twenty people answering the phone for all types of calls, from engineering, to just how to check the fluid level. in a pinch, call me at 602-549-3638. i work for hwh also. i can help ,and am available on weekends, and evenings.

RE: Location of leveling jack reservoir on a 2005 Itasca Horizon

thats why its important to read the whole manual. the operators manual tells you how to operate the system. if you really want to know about the system and how it works, there is no substitute for a service manual. i know i harp on that a lot, but it gives you information that is just not in the operators manual. in the service manual, it explains how to identify what goes where. the harnesses are marked at each connection. in the event you cant find what you need, please feel free to call me at 602-549-3638. i can help. im the first one to admit that i dont know all the answers, but i know who to ask, and i have their phone number. paul maddox

RE: Checking in at RV parks Venting

dahkota, you are right. most of the counter people are not young people. many of them are retirees. you wonder sometimes, if you had made different choices in life, if that wouldnt be you. be grateful for the blessings of a good education, and good choices. also be patient, because of todays political climate, by all involved, you will be served by people who hold various college degrees in basket weaving, mountain bike riding, and other worthless areas.(prescott collegec in prescott az will allow you to chose such degrees, and tailor courses to give you a degree in that field.) im just venting too. i get tired of people who cant even make change. i know theres a learning curve, but the road should be straight somewhere along the way. HAPPY CAMPING!!! be happy you are on the other side of the counter.

RE: HWH Leveler Parts

i just looked up that part number RAP7194 on the hwh price list, and the price is #31.80, not including shipping. i have access to the hwh list, not some guy quoting a price off his head. it hasnt changed since lune 2014.

RE: Replace Solenoid Valve on HWH Leveling System?

doug is right. the old ring is usually cut in the process of removal. if you do remove solenoids,just to check, order a seal packet or o-ring kit hwh number R92101. there are o-rings enough to do it several times.

RE: Help Identify this Class A (Criminal Case)

bigblock, that what i was trying to say. it is entertaining though to read thru some of the answers.i go thru all the different sections, looking for hwh problems, and stumbled on this one. it was just too much fun to stop reading.

RE: HWH Levellers

you are going to have to either replace the cylinders, or have them rebuilt. call hwh, and get a rga number to return the cylinders. thats the cheapest way to go. any other thing you do is a temporary fix.

RE: Help Identify this Class A (Criminal Case)

rather than help,most just commented. all he asked is, if you could identify the coach. here is what most should have said. i dont know. that is my answer. if you cant contribute?

RE: Hydraulic leveler not working

jerry, check the roller bearing at the top left corner of the jack. it has to turn free for the jack to pivot. spray it with wd 40 or some type of penetrating oil and loosen it with a pair of pliers. download a service manual at www.hwh.com. it covers this repair. the manual says use wd40, not silicone. sorry, but hwh does not recommend silicone... please feel free to call me at 602-549-3638 if you need help. i work for hwh. thanks, paul maddox

RE: How to level without popping a windshield???

the cap has to be twisting further than the rubber gasket is capable of covering. most of the time, the opening is just too large. check how far the edge of cap sticks into the gasket groove when the windshield is just sitting normally. sometimes its not enough, and you will have to apply some fiberglass to the edge of the cap. this is normally the cause. ive had to do this to a lot of coaches, especially fleetwoods. with tiffins it has been a rare occurrence.

RE: HWH fluid is everywhere--how much can we lose?

doug is correct about the rooms. if your coach has below the floor mechanisms, the rooms have to be retracted. if they have above the floor mechanisms, the rooms have to be extended. jacks should always be retracted. in any case. one inch below the top of the tank is the right fluid level. if you're not sure, check it with the rooms retracted. that normally good enough. it doesnt have to be that accurate. just dont overfill.

RE: Location of 40 amp fuse for HWH Levelers

download a service manual for your system from the hwh website. it will show the location of the fuse as related to the pump assembly. the location of the pump is wherever the manufacturer chooses to put it. the fuse holder is part of a #10 black or dark blue wire. that wire is installed on the master relay. it is on the same stud that the 12 volt battery supply cable is installed, about 3 inches from the stud. the location should not vary from one coach to another. please feel free to call me if you need further help. my cell is 602-549-3638. i do work for hwh. i do not sell parts or leveling systems on this site. i am available for diagnosis only. paul maddox

RE: Difference in levelers

hikerdogs, i wanted to point that out also, but as an employee of hwh, i thought it would be better coming from someone else. hwh now uses a process that uses nickel as a plating/bonding agent. as i understand it, the process is different than plating. its a molecular bonding that is supposed to be better than plating. the rods of the cylinders are now covered with nickel, as well as the hydraulic solenoids. i haven't found any rusting or flaking in any of my field contacts with customers. we are trying to use less black paint, which because of the flaking, tends to contaminate the fluid during installation.

RE: Hydraulic slides and leveling

if you have a hwh system, go to the website www.hwh.com there is a wealth of information about your system. download a service manual to start. go over the diagnostic steps. they will walk you through most situations other manufacturers have similar sites.

RE: leveler spring noise

the bolts on the bottom retainer bracket on the jack housing may have been replaced with longer bolts. the springs sometimes hang up on the end of the bolt while extending. you can grind down the end of the bolt. sometimes that helps. other than that, its the nature of the beast.

RE: Front hydraulic leveler not kicking out and lowering.

ken, what size jacks do you have? the 6k jacks get rust in the pivot bolt area, and can cause that problem. the 9k jacks have a roller bearing above the actuator that also causes that problem. before doing any parts replacement, do the diagnostics. download a service manual for your system from the hwh website. they are free. go thru the steps to find the problem. if you have problems, please call me at 602-549-3638. i can help.

RE: Auto Leveling on a TT??

i have seen hwh systems installed on regular travel trailers. there are limiting factors in all jacks, because of the short distance between the frame and the ground. the front isnt the problem. the rear jacks have to be mounted behind the rear axle to keep from twisting the frame. please feel free to call me at 602-549-3638 if you would like to talk. i do work for hwh, but i do not sell the jack systems. i only repair them. i do a lot of work with camping world.
