Default 2000 LX HWH leveling system

2000 LX - both front hydraulic jacks keep slipping slowly. I have a repairman out to service them. Can anyone please tell me how to find access to them. I am always nervous when having someone to work on the coach. We have new solenoids to replace but he is trying to find out why the HWH keeps slipping. Thank you in advance !

Right front behind the step. Crawl under the front bumper and look up.

I assume by slipping you mean leaking down. 2 possibilities with the most likely being a solenoid.
There are 4 solenoids in a line. One for each jack. They are accessed from under the coach near the entry steps.
Each has a relief valve, which will either be a T-handle or a flip lever. (The new ones have a flip lever)
If the current ones have a T-handle you have to open it PAST RESISTANCE to get it to raise the jack.
To determine which one is which, lower the jacks some but do not let them touch the ground. Craw under and turn one of the T-handles counterclockwise until a jack raises.

You simply unscrew one solenoid and screw in a new one (with the jacks up unless you want a bath)
ATF is the fluid and the system is refilled by removing the middle entry step (just lift it up)

Paris,
On my 2000 LXi, the pump and solenoids are accessed from the middle of the front bay. In the middle of the front bay, look forward and you will see an access panel. Remove the panel and you will see the pump and solenoids. To the right of the access panel is the HWH Electrical control box.
Good Luck
Randy B

Default Dump suspension / leveling jacks

Along the line of the leveling jacks, the manual says to dump the suspension prior to activating the leveling jacks. When doing this it is tough to get fall on the holding tank discharge hose. Is there a problem activating the leveling jacks with the suspension aired up? Sure would make hooking the sewer line up easier.

I put the jacks down just enough to get level with the suspension aired up, then dump the suspension. I like having a little room under the coach and don't mind stepping up. Why make the jacks lift the coach if you don't have to?

I dump and hit auto level. With less stroke on the jack, you have more stability. I wonder if hwh wrote the directions to best get one pair of jacks from stoking out making forward aft movement on all four nill. I dont like to out think the engineers who wrote the directions. On the Jack issue in the inital post HWH has a bang up treouble shooting guide. I had an issue and sent them a video of me completing the entire trouble shooting task. That allowd them to come up with the exact fix within 30 min. Nice people. Here is their link to finding your product and service manual.
even if you use a technician it helps tyo know what they should be doing.
