Stabilizer Jacks Will NOT Go Down
Good morning and happy Saturday. In short my stabilizer jacks/levelers will not go down.
We purchased our 1999 Four Winds Hurricane 33SL (with the slide) last summer. In essence it feels like we have rebuilt everything except the frame... There was extensive roof damage in the back, which required the rear bedroom to be stripped to the studs and replaced. We also replaced all plumbing, water heater tank, shower, tires, brakes, roof membrane, refinished the cabinets, replaced the flooring, and fixed some other mechanical issues including the step would stay out 1/2 way, one Jack wouldnít go up without some coaching, and the heater didnít work. By the time we got it all finished it was winter time and we were able to camp one time, in October. Everything worked just fine last fall except for two residual issues (but didnít affect the actual operation of the motorhome more of a nuisance).
1. There is a ďrelayĒ in the BCC that keeps clicking every 5 seconds. I have purchased the relay but havenít replaced it yet. This issue has been occurring since we bought the motorhome.
2. We believe we have a ground issue somewhere with the chassis lights. The headlight switch cover was on the floor when we purchased the motorhome and the previous owner said that he would use a screwdriver to turn the lights on. The headlights are always on and when we turned the switch to actually turn the headlights on the left turn signal would not blink but rather stay illuminated. This spring when we took it out to prep for thus camping trip we noticed that the left rear back up bulb was blown (which was blown when we bought it) and the left turn signal actually worked.
When we arrived to the campground last night the stabilizer jacks will not go down. We have a manual powered jacks/leveler system. It has two control panels the one that has the on off buttons and the other one is the actual control levers. I checked the fuse at the panel and at the motor under the motorhome. Both fuses are good and I have power at the panel. My parking brake is engaged and Iím getting the brake light on the dash. When I engage the control levers the motor clicks but it will not engage. I have tried it with the motor on, off, plugged in, unplugged, and with a combination of the batteries being on/ off. I also tapped each Jack thinking that something may have been frozen. Iím currently at a loss as to what to do next. I didnít check the fluid levels as I cannot figure out how to get the cap off to check into the tank (I donít have the right tools at the Campground). Note: the jacks did work last summer/fall. Any thoughts?
