That pump should do nothing until you push a button to make it do what you want it to do. Maybe it is stuck on auto/level which would make it do that I suppose? Try pushing the auto/level button a few times and see if it unsticks it. When I turn my jacks on nothing happens until I hit auto/level or one of the other buttons to make a specific jack come down. Then and only then do I hear the pump come on.

Argh, that's what I was afraid of. I did mess with the control panel when I first got it going again. Really don't want to burn up the pump any more than it already is, at least I can stabilize if not perfectly level.

I may see if I can track down a pressure gauge big enough, pretty sure I read that it was like 3500 psi.

On the solenoid I replaced there was a tag on the lead that activates the solenoid that says the following:


"This solenoid is activated by grounding this terminal"

It looked like a normal 3 post solenoid to me, but maybe that has something to do with it. Its the only major thing I replaced. I did replace one of the circuit breakers because I broke a stud off trying to get it undone.

At Pine Mountain for the WOG rally. Got a Safe-T-Plus installed, went for a test drive, came back a half hour later. Began deploying jacks, did not get to level before I got solenoid chatter. Given a little cool-down time it starts working again. Sound like a flaky solenoid? Seems simple enough if a Motorcraft starter solenoid. Thoughts? Thanks.

was the engine running while leveling. That HWH motor pulls a lot of amps.

Made no difference. Shore power has helped. Pump runs well when it runs. Thanks, Rick.

Clean up the electrical connection on the pump and make sure there is a good path to ground. Make the connections on the batteries shiny also.

This could be a symptom of a battery/charging system issue.

I am installing a new replacement kick down jack. I crawled under today and other then a heavy jack it should be no big deal. I have the manual levelling control. The new jack comes with a Weatherpac connector. The old one has no connectors. There are 2 wires. The Weatherpac is marked A and B but the Bluebird wiring is not color coded. I noticed that the BB wiring is almost like a flat extension cord. One of the wires is smooth and the other is grooved. I went to the HWH site but it just confused me! I think one is ground. I can check with an ohmmeter. Is my guess correct. Thanks
