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.

RE: HWH kick down jack springs

mrwizard has it right. use a ratchet strap. hook one end of the spring in the foot, then hook one side to the yoke. loop it around the top of the jack. hook the ratchet strap into the end of the second spring. tighten it up to stretch the second spring, long enough to hook it into the other side of the foot. use a hammer on the yoke to move it into correct position. i know you've done this before, so this is for first time dyi folks.

RE: 96 thor motorhome slideout rubbing floor

if its a level out room, the slide does ride on the floor. theres no fix. there is a nylon glide piece that is supposed to lessen the marks. just the way its designed.

RE: 04 Winnie Brave 24 foot gasser bedroom slide issue.

a simple test will help. open the retract valve for that room. hit the switch, if it comes in at the regular speed, replace the solenoids. hwh normally recommends both because of people replacing the wrong one. if you are sure of the right one, order just one. both make sure the job is done the first time. also look at the seals. if one is out of place, it could also restrict movement one way. more likely to hang up one one side though. theres more pressure to push the ram out. about half bringing it in.

RE: Mountains on I40 from New Mexico to Las Vegas

they are paving areas of i40 west of flagstaff now, both sides. there are areas of traffic backups, but nothing difficult.

RE: HWH jack manifold on Allegro Bay

there is a kit you can order. the part number is RAP1635. this is a plunger and guide kit. it has four plungers in the kit. those is the needles of the valves. this is not guaranteed to fix your problem, since the seat of the valve might be damaged. you can remove the whole joystick assembly, send it in to be repaired if you want. contact hwh by email for a rga.

RE: HWH jack manifold on Allegro Bay

as doug explained, the joystick assembly is the manifold. the 200 hwh system had the valves built into the joystick assembly. that is the so called manifold. if you download a service manual for your system, you can see how the valves are incorporated into the assembly.

RE: weepy, dirty HWH jack connections

that depends on the year and manufacturer. they make the decision where to put the pump. mine is a 2005 36 ft itasca meridian, and the pump is under the step. on my 2002 39 ft chieftain, it was under the front of the slide out like you described.

RE: Slide Out Creaking

the service and operators manual will give the correct information. its not a good idea to rely on word of mouth info. the manufacturer of the system will give you the correct info. in the case of hwh, its ok to use dry lube on the slides if you want, because you own them. hwh recommends wd 40 for the jacks. dry lube is not recommended. however as i said, you own them. use what you want.

RE: motor on hwh leveling system

coyote, i have not seen a hwh motor for 600 dollars. what part number was that? was it an obsolete motor, and they wanted to sell you a basic pump assembly? just curious

RE: HWH levelers

it depends on what is required to fix the cylinder. some only need new seals, and others have a bent shaft. thats where the difference is. either way, when its done, you get a one year parts and labor warranty on the cylinder.

RE: Adding Levelers?

the hwh system is bolt on. the ford chassis does not allow welding. i know its done, but not required by hwh. the complete system is available at camping world, and can be installed by a reasonably mechanically inclined person. yes they are worth the money,

RE: Leveling Jacks issue

verify what leveling system you have, and download a service manual for it. they are available on the internet. whether its power gear, hwh, or atwood, the service manuals are out there. follow the diagnostic steps to find the problem. all we can do here is give you an educated (?) guess. there is no substitute for a hands on check. if its hwh, please feel free to give me a vall. mayve i can help. i do work for hwh. 1-602-549-3638

RE: How do they jack up big coach when replacing tires?

there is a section in the owners manual that expressly says you should not do that. yes you can lift the coach, and many people do, but its not safe, or good business practice. the reason is liability. what happens if the jacks fail and some one is injured? there is a real danger of that happening. why did they have YOU run the jacks instead of them? because they can say you did it, thats why. it transfers liability. if this sounds alarmist, thats ok. better you have the information than not. what you do with it is your business. as i've said before, you own the jacks. do what you feel is right and safe.

RE: HWH Jack switch

was the insulating washers reinstalled on the new circuit board? that may be where the short is.

RE: HWH Jack switch

remove the top plate and check the springs underneath. these are the contacts for power to the joystick. make sure they are at 90 degrees from the plate. clean all the contact points and the ring inside the joystick with a pencil eraser to remove oxidation. that switch is the same as any light switch the same size. nothing special. buy at any rv store if they carry them in stock. if you are blowing the fuse, you have a short in the harness somewhere. i know that sounds obvious, but it could be a bad circuit board also.

RE: HWH leveling system 310

use the service manual. do you have hydraulic rooms? do they function ok? if so, check the 50 lb pressure switch on the manifold. a low battery wont let the pump turn fast enough to close this switch. this switch is labelled on the harness. to insure a good 12 volt supply, try running the engine while leveling. go thru the diagnostics. make sure the touch pad is plugged in. a loose plug will cause some of the problems described. check all the grounds. then, use a 12 volt tester to find where you are losing power. its not likely that all four solenoids are bad at one time. check the fuses on the control box. again, the service manual will guide you thru the steps needed to find the problem.

RE: HWH Hydraulic Jacks

download a service manual from the hwh website for your leveling system. it has wiring diagrams, and a diagnostic section that is easy to follow. it should lead to a solution. it sounds like a failed 12 volt solenoid, but a hands on test will tell. pm me if you need help. i do work for hwh.
