OK, got the starting issue fixed, and thanks to all here who offered help and suggestions. Now to a less critical but still annoying issue.

To work on the starter we had to raise the unit of on the front levelers. Once retracted they still say that the jacks are down (Power Gear Manual Leveling System). This has happened occasionally in the past and always straightened out after a little drive. I am guessing low reservoir fluid is the main culprit but I have two issue yet. Don't know where the reservoir is and I also don't know where the fuse for the system is. I have looked in the owners manual (2004 Holiday Ramble Vacationer 37 PCT) but the fuse diagrams do not show the leveling system or location of the reservoir.

Thoughts?

Have someone run the jacks while you listen for the hydraulic pump. The reservoir is attached to it in many jack systems. The fill on mine if the vent cap that unscrews.

I deleted the post because my voice was not interpreted properly. Also edit was giving me Fits.

When in re-tract Mode place a board like a 2 x 6 on edge and pry each foot up. One of them may just be off a little. You might also lubricate the ram when it is down.

Ok first VISUALLY inspect the jacks to insure no SLIVER is showing above the pads. (If there is hit the RETRACT ALL again and if it still shows take another jack (like a bottle jack) Center under pad and lift a bit and hit all retract.

If that does not do it or of no silver showing you got to find the tank, and the tank is.. Connected to the pump.. So have parther operate jacks while you do the walk around and use the ears to locate pump

Workhorse Custom Chassis it was front and center under hood behind .. well there is no bumper but that's what it's behind.


Home is where I park it.

On this MH, the pump and reservoir is curbside up front, access is thru the wheel well , I think they mounting is a Fleetwood thing, but who knows, maybe yours is also there

It sounds to me that your jacks are retracting all the way but your lights on your dash does not show that because they are still lit. Is that correct? If so I would look for a switch that controls the light. On mine it is a mercury switch mounted to the top of the jack itself and every once and a while I have to clean the ground to get it to go off. The ground is a wire with a terminal grounded by a small machine bolt.
