2015 Hurricane 34 J - Leveling Jacks leak down

2015 Hurricane 34 J - Leveling Jacks leak down

I finally have mastered the leveling jacks on this unit (whether resetting the zero point or manually leveling). At our current site the front wheels had to be ever so slightly off the ground to reach the level point for the rig. But within 24 hours the wheels are touching the ground and you can begin to "feel" the unit is out of level. There is no fluid leakage anywhere that I can find from the leveling system. What to do or check??

Doesn't have to be visible external fluid leakage. The cylinder O rings could leak, allowing fluid to bypass them ever so slightly, allowing them to lower a bit.

Did you check for sure that the coach was out of level? Could also be that the front springs "relaxed" a bit after a day with the wheels in the air.

Just walking around the coach you can tell the front has ever so slightly dropped, but I will follow up and confirm. I will also start measuring the coach and see if it's dropping based on the frame rather than the tires. Thanks for the idea.

Mine leaks at the pump or reservoir, it took 1-1/2 qtrs. to bring it
up to full. But this was after a month of traveling.

But I have started using wood blocks under the front wheels before
I use the jacks.

Seems to work better that way. MH is in shop for repair now.

I stopped by CW yesterday to talk with my service advisor about the work being done on my Hurricane 34E, tech said that the pump vents fluid out the cap and it is normal?

If leaking fluid is normal, my 2015 Windsport 34f is broken!

Well depends on how long you have it up on the levers, we spent a month
out on the road and I had it in one spot for 5 days, another for 9 days and
a third for 3 days?

It took 1-1/2 quarts to fill the reservoir back up to full, but this was after
the month long trip.

No way!

I have a 2014 Hurricane 34E that is permanently setup to live in full-time when not being used on a fun excursion. When it's "in storage" it's really just a relaxing getaway for the family in the back yard. It has been level on it's jacks for months at a time.

The jacks have been down currently since the first week of June, so for about two months.

There is just sits. Level. No leaks. No dropping.

I agree with you and others that if a leveling jack leak is normal I better get mine in for warranty work. My coach was on the jacks for a month and leaked nothing. I let it down from the jacks for a day or two and I'm getting ready to level it off and extend the slides at my wife's request. She wants to take inventory for our next trip out.
