I'm planning, hoping, to fix it myself. So I will need parts. Coachcraft is a viable place to start the conversation if they can provide parts.


The kickdown cylinder is off the jack now, and I think the whole assembly just bolts to the frame as an assembly, so R&R of the entire unit shouldn't be a big deal. I just need to know what I have, what my options are, and how much.

HWH will not sell you rebuild parts.
But,any halfway decent hydraulic shop will have the parts.
Its simple stuff.
We have a couple of local hydraulic shops that always have the stuff i need for hwh rebuilds.
Sometimes there is a magic trick or two to get the stuff apart,but most of that has been documented here on wog.
Use the search feature,enjoy!

I've seen some of the tricks listed, like how to get the locking wire out of the jack body to completely disassemble it. I'm hoping the work will be limited t replacing the kick down jack. We do have a hydraulic hose place down the street from the local truck parts house. I'll try them and see what they can do.



Any idea if I can get a complete leveling jack unit from HWH? And if so, any idea what model I need for the rear of a 1980 FC35? I haven't thoroughly cleaned one of ours up yet to see if there are any defining numbers or other IDs on it yet, perhaps that will happen this weekend.

Grabbed the actuator and headed out to the local hydraulic shop. Looks like they’ve been ‘Covided’. Place locked up and sign has been removed. Since they were on the same road, I stopped by the truck parts house, but the counter guy said they didn’t have anything like that.

So so far, no luck.

Default HWH Actuator

Gene, a few years ago I purchased a HWH actuator and replaced it myself. I sent the old one back to them, they repaired it and I carried as a spare. It went with the coach when we sold it. Before that I also sent a complete jack to them for repair of major leaks. The jack repair was $435 in 2010 and the actuator was $202 in 2015. The jack was the rear unit our our 80FC and I believe the part number is 1/AP2381
