^^^ Seems like darn near every other company these days. Sad situation, for sure.

I retired after 30 years in my career. 29-1/2 years it was beyond fun. The last 6 months my tank was empty.

It's not getting any better either.

Remaining in business is the focus or every company. I would expect HWH has contracts to supply RV mfgrs. with leveling and slide mechanisms ther were signed before the pandemic. Those contracts must be their first priority if they wish to remain in business.

Every HWH leveling system made has remedies available for repair/replacement. Finding said parts is not so simple, HWH has many authorized dealers in the U.S.A., and have a listing on their website.

I just discovered my HWH slideoout does not move even though the pump runs. Diagnosing the problem and repairing same is my next goal.

Yeah, right, let's get the pity-party going for HWH....Right.

I needed to contact someone there to figure out what I needed to fix the leaking HWH pump system in our Tiffin Bus, and it took THREE DAMNED MONTHS for anyone to finally return my call. And YOU try to justify THAT kind of "customer service"???? C'MON, MAAANNNN.

YOU CALL GM OR FORD AND ATTEMPT TO DIAGNOSIS YOUR VEHICLE OVER THE PHONE AND GET PARTS. REPORT BACK. HWH IS NOT IN THE BUSINESS TO TELL RETAIL CUSTOMERS HOW TO FIX AND TO SELL PARTS. THEY DO THAT AS A CONVIENANCE. PEOPLE LIKE YOU MAKE PROFESSIONALS LIKE ME HAVE TO WAIT FOR PHONE TIME. Doug

I have to agree with Doug on this one. Most manufacturers rely on their dealers for service issues.

IMO HWH would be doing themselves a favor if they said so.

Sure we all want to talk to the people who built the product but the reality is, unless they decide to dedicate the proper resources to doing so it actually can backfire badly - and this thread just confirms that.

"professionals like you...right" Little hubris going on, do we?

I don't know you, and I have no way to know if you're capable of dealing with HWH jack system problems, so there's that. What I DO know is that there's no one I can call in my area I can trust to do knowledgeable repairs on my HWH RV system.

"Take it to a dealer", you might say. Sure - and be ready for them to park it out on the "Back 40" for 3 months, then put their minimum-wage teen-age wonder with his power driver on it, and then, STILL, screw it up. Not happening.

I don't call "GM or Ford" for service issues because AUTOMOTIVE dealers are EXPECTED and REQUIRED by manufacturers to take care of problems. Comparing the automobile industry to the RV industry is apples to oranges, and YOU KNOW THAT. Once an RV leaves the factory, it's on it's own, maintenance-wise - FACT.

Your attempts to paint RV owners as clueless and helpless are less than helpful. Many of us know a lot more about our own RVs than dealers do, and trying to get any technical or service help from dealers with most of the systems in our RVs often end up a frustrating, time-consuming, and expensive dry hole.

In many instances, our only recourse with service-related issues IS to directly contact the manufacturers, and YOU know that. It's a totally different ballgame from the automotive situation.

Lastly, I've been here long enough to have seen many of your posts. I'm not sure what you think you're accomplishing here, but my impression is that your objective is to denigrate RV owners. You can guess what I think of that attitude.

Your grim narrative is not the experience I've had owning several types of RV's in different states dealing with different dealers. I think Doug is spot on. Most times it's all about how you approach things.
