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.

RE: HWH Leveler Replacement Parts

yeah, all you have to do is use one of those new fangled printers you run the faxed copy thru scan, hit print, and there you are, a paper version of the solenoid. as foghorn leghorn says, i say, its a joke, son

RE: Norcold 682 IM Refer fails to light on propane.

some of the salvage companies may be able to supply the part. you have to admit, its is quite old. maybe its time for a NEWER refrig. those can be found on the internet or at the salvage companies colaws in carthage missouri, or arizona rv salvage are good places to start. making your own parts is a good idea if you are sure to use the original sizes, and lengths. as far as the gas tube, size doesnt matter, as long it can be readapted to fit the original. the fuel/air adjuster should be as close to original in shape and size as possible.

RE: HWH Leveler Replacement Parts

doug is right. open the solenoid to one jack at a time, and see if the jack extends and retracts ok. it will go down, and right back up. if it does not. its the cylinder.sometimes there is a groaning sound with the process. the solenoids are normally full open or full closed. if it had debris in it, the jack will leak down. that should not affect extend.

RE: HWH levelling jacks fluid tank

as doug says, dexron 3. doesnt even have to be any specific brand. autozone, napa, oriellys. if you have clear fluid, its hwh brand of dexron 3. just be sure to not use any other fluid, like power steering fluid, or brake fluid. they eat the seals. as a side note, hwh does sell a fluid that is pourable at minus 50 degrees, for those who do winter camping. it provides very low retraction times.

RE: Coach style level system for PU/TC

if you want to do the installation yourself, camping world can sell you the parts. measure the clearance from the ground to the bottom of the frame. this is important to get the right length jack assembly. because if you get it wrong, it may be a problem returning the assembly without a restocking charge. it will also determine whether straight down or kick down jacks will fit. it is not advisable to mix the two. look at the frame. is there room to mount the jack. you need about 8 inches of room lengthwise, and if you use kick downs, you need about 15 inches of room horizontally. please contact me at 602-549-3638. i may be able to help you get the right parts. the joystick system is the cheapest. it starts about $2400 or so. i dont have the figures right in front of me. but i can check. its on the internet.
