I would think yours should also have these valves as they are an emergency backup just for this purpose. I have been told of 3 places where they can possibly be located: In compartment under driver, under the step, and also where I found them directly up underneath the curbside corner.

I believe that the T Valves will only be found on the Automatic Leveling Systems, but I could be wrong.

It is feasible that if you have the type of leveling jacks that flip up you may not have the T-valves, as you could always just flip them up in some manner.

Default Leveling Jack Stuck & Won't Retract - Need Help

Hi to all.

I will definitely have to go have a look at my coach for those T handles.

On the 84FC, with the air system down, I did not have a problem getting under the coach. On the 88 coach though, it is a little more difficult to get under, but I can.

When I rebuilt my system, I did just as Frank suggested, I loosened the hose off and the jack retracted somewhat.

To get the jacks retracted on the 88, which has been troublesome, I have been using the air system and a block of wood. I use my jacks after the air system is down, and raise the coach slightly. If I have problem the air system comes into play.

Bill,

If your 88 is set up like mine, all you have to do is look up directly under the curbside front corner and there they are.

Woody: I went out today and looked under my coach. I didn't see anything that looks even close to those T-handles. I don't think SP's have them. If they're under there somewhere, they're very well hidden!
