Default HWH controller repairs

Well, I don't remember seeing any connector for those wires, I had to cut them. Also, where the wires went I do not know, sorry I cannot help you more.

HWH is still in buisness. You should be able to contact them Monday AM.

On mine the control board has a fuse. It it mounted to the side of all the solenoids under the door. Techs at HWH have always been great help over the phone. which system do you have.

The solenoids from HWH are around $30 bucks, they should have them on hand.
Good customer service
I traced my HWH problem to the solenoids and or to the motor. Getting it fixed next week.
The motor is in the step well and I just can't get at it to work on it so I'm going to Bleaklys and then Coachcraft for a pocket full of little stuff.
Looks like yours is out of the coach, check the motor as well if you got everything out and it's easy to work on.

When my motor went I couldn't see any practical way to remove it from below, so I removed the plywood over the steel step, then cut an access hole in the step itself. In my case the motor had been repeatedly overheated (some my fault) and the solder had been thrown from the commutator-coil connections.

Since the motor on mine is no longer available I was lucky to find (with the help of Macy Neshati) someone who could/would resolder the connections. Total cost was $80.

Attached the cut piece of metal to the plywood and reassembled - easy to get to if I ever need to get in there again.

I just bought new plungers and a microswitch from HWH.

Microswitch was about $14. 8 plungers were $59. If you have it apart might be a good time to replace those......easy job.

Don,

Sound just like my problem.

My HWH tank & motor assembly is a side mount and the motor is between the step well and the wheel well just below passenger seat.

I don't think I can get to the motor or the relays from the step well.

I would have to go through the left side of the step well, under the passenger seat.

Bill thank you for the rebuild pict's an all! I removed the LT front jack and replaces o-rings on the kick down valve and when testing the lights I pumped oil out of the hose I had removed. Well I fixed the o-rings and did not see any leaks but the LT front jack would not go back up. Removed the oil hyd lines and pushed it back up. Replaced the lines put a little pressure on it and it will not go back up. In your troublrshooting you replaced the LT front at the manifold with another and the jack went back up (RIGHT?). so did I mess something up or did the manifold just go out?
