Default Who fixes Leveling Jacks both leaking

At my last stop in Biloxi MS I used my front Leveling Jacks for the first time everything seemed to be good till I noticed that I was lower one day and looking under and I could see red fluid all over the front passenger side jack and on the ground the jack had failed it was still down but not holding us up.

Then the driver side front jack it was still working and holding but I could see it has leaked fluid to.

I was able to get them up with no problem and the both back jacks worked with no problem and no leaking.

I am not sure if it is the jacks leaking or the hoses going to the lacks leaking I am not wanting to get under it. My new wood blocks I made are covered with Fluid from it leaking

I would like to have them fixed.

A ? if the jacks are not pushed out much could that of created to much weight on them to make them leak as I was using my 4 inch wood blocks so they did not need to come out much

I am on the way to Galveston TX for a week starting Friday staying overnight tonight in a Casino parking lot in LA Lake Charles.

Then heading up to the Fort worth area to have some new hose's put on.

Any place from Galveston to Fort worth that works on them or can take a loot at them to see what is wrong that knows about them?? I guess they would need a drive in bay with under area.


Also what battery starts the generator? I went to start it and it almost had no power to turn it over and would not start I had to turn the bus motor on and then it was able to start getting more power.

Thanks

Ed, not an easy cure if you need the jacks rebuilt. they have to be removed and sent to a hydraulic shop, all taking time. You can live without the jacks if you park on half way level places. If you can make it to HWH in Moscow IA as part of your trip, they can pull them and repair them while you wait.

A good hydraulic shop should be able to fix them. I fixed mine and got parts from a hydraulic shop.

This sounds like fun thanks for the list and links

What part do you think is broke on them?

If the fluid is running down the shinny piston, it will be internal seals? "O" rings. If the fluid is running down the outside of the jack from the top its a fitting or hose.

I had problems with the seals which I replaced but another problem was the sendor at the top, that was a real PIA.

My front jacks were leaking on my 84 PT 40. I removed the jacks and took them to a hydraulic shop in Augusta Ga (near where the coach was located when I bought it). The shop said they tried get parts and HWH would not sell them the parts. Both the jacks then had to be mailed to HWH in Ia in order for them to be fixed. I still have not received them back and the ordeal started 3 weeks ago.

One thing to remember if you do take them off ( I learned the hard way)...... If you do take them off, don't attempt to operate other hydraulic items on the coach unless you cap off the open feed lines. I opened my generator slide and hydraulic fluid went everywhere due to the open lines and this will cause air to get into the system. Your's may be different but wanted to share my learnings. I should have known better, but was in a hurry.

You do not have to get the parts from HWH. This has been posted over and over. Any good hydrolic shop can match the parts needed to reseal the Jacks. First they have to want to do the job. Next they have to match the parts themselves. HWH will not sell the parts to rebuild the jacks. I know of a shop in Springfield, Mo. They have repaired 3 jacks for me and 1 for Mark B. None of them have failed to date. Last one I had repaired was 140 bucks to get the job done. Voris Hydraulics 417 869 7933

I had one resealed by a shop here in Weatherford. Reasonable rate and quick turn around.

I had it off and carried it in I don't think they will do the removal and replacement for you. I would normally be happy to help but my schedule has gotten overwhelmed and I can't help.
