Default HWH Jacks - Manual Release Valve Location

I have a jack stuck down, and despite spending several hours looking, can't find the manual release valves. Anyone per chance have any ideas on where these might be located on a 1999 43 LXI?

Thanks,
Mike

Mike,

The release valves for mine, which has a similar chassis, are located under the passenger side, front, between the steps and genny. It's up high.

A warning!

As ours was installed from the factory, we could not release them without getting under the coach and reaching up. Didn't like that idea too much with the coach about to come down on me.

While at HWH last year, had them turn the release manifold around and now it can be reached by bringing out the genny, reach in from the side and release the valves.

Look for them there, just in case BB decided to do it correctly after 97.

Default Thanks Paul

Much appreciated.

I will make double sure she is up on air and off the jacks before I try and release them. Goofy place for BB to have put them - I had hoped they would be in the back with all the other hydraulic plumbing!

The stuck jack came up today - they are finicky things - I think I'll take it in for a mechanic with a pit to spin them around as you suggest.

Much obliged,
Mike
