2000 Fleetwood: The dashboard alarm for the hydraulic jacks..chassis…

Customer Question
The dashboard alarm for the...
The dashboard alarm for the hydraulic jacks constantly beep while in Drive mode although the jacks are already completely retracted on our 2000 Fleetwood Southwind. It is a Workhorse chassis if that helps. Is there a solution to this?
Thanks!

Hi There!!!

 

Thanks for Choosing Just Answer...

 

The first thing to do is verify that the jacks are up all the way and to check the level in the hydraulic reservoir. There should be a float switch in the reservoir that will sense the level. When the fluid is low it thinks a jack is down and would sound the alarm off. The best way to find the reservoir is to operate the jacks, you will hear the pump/motor running and the reservoir will be near the pump. Most have a cap that is vented. It is also possible the float switch is bad or not in the correct position.. These can be checked by removing and testing with a volt meter set to ohms. Also when you check the fluid level make sure the jacks are in the stored position, when the jacks retract it pushes the fluid back into the reservoir and raises the float switch... This is what I would look for first..

 

Thank You!!!! Please hit ACCEPT for my efforts, Positive feedback and BONUS welcomed!!!!!
