Customer reply replied 6 years ago
yes it is 6 wire double throw switch. there is ground wire 2 motor leads one 12 volt supply one wire attached to 12 volt supply lug which goes to one limit switch and a wire from the sixth lug to the the other limit switch. i hope this helps i sent email to levelrite co. they did not respond. i realize diagnois from a distance is almost impossible i hope this helps thank ypou
RV Mechanic: Michael Reush, RV Technician replied 6 years ago
Thank you for responding, what the swich is doing is reversing the signal to the motor so ck where the pos and neg are on the switch, depress it, you will see it 'passed' to terminals on one side, then when you press the switch you will see the polarity reversed on the other end of the switch.........

i not sure i understand. when i depress the switch one way i can switch motor leads and it will run jack up or down. when depress switch other direction i get nothing it is not reversing polarity i don't know if it is toggle switch or problem with limit switch arrangement. i have had switch apart and cleaned contacts can not see a thing wrong with toggle. one limit switch had corrosion cleaned it up even replaced one wire connector. i dont think limit is any good it does not click when button is depressed on side of limit other limit clean clicks when actuator button depressed. tried to contact leverrite co. would not respond.

YES I TRIED TO JUMPER IT OUT BUT NOT SURE WHETHER I GOT THE RIGHT 2 WIRES ONE IS HOT LED TO BAD LIMIT. GOT BETWEEN IT AND GROND AND SMOKED MY JUMPER. THERE ARE 3 WIRES ON EACH LIMIT. I THINK ONE IS HOT, ONE JUMPS 0VER TO OTHER LIMIT AND LAST NOT SURE, OTHER 2 WIRES JOB I APOLOGIZE I KNOW THIS IS NOT MUCH HELP. I KNOW JUST ENOUGH TO BE DANGEROUS AND BY TIME I FIGURE IT OUT I HAVE MESS SOMETHING UP.

i am sorry you have not been paid. all i have is what i gave you initially. i have no paper work or instructions the only thing i have is what is on the jack. "level-rite hi-power 3000" barker mfg battle creek mi. i sent them an email a week ago and have heard nothing. "just answer" should pay you they put 4 charges on my card totaling 66 dollars 4 days time and had one question answered. i do not understand the charging methods. the experts have been great including you doing all you can. in the future i will be more carefull about submitting questions and charges involved. i am sorry i have not been able to provided more information. i will accept your answer so you can be paid.

RV Mechanic: Michael Reush, RV Technician replied 6 years ago
Hi, I looked at your questions, Customer's Questions and Answers and it looks lagitimate, just wanted to make sure there wasnt a glitch, and your paying for something your not receiving....................You do not have to accept my work with you as I have not been able to do any more than you have already done, I had hoped to get a wiring diagram as you are, and that would have been worth it............So Thank you for getting back to me...........Do not accept.......thank you
