Hi my name is Robert..

Normally when you hear the jack alarm going off the reservoir tank is low on fluid, there is a float switch inside the tank as the jacks retract the fluid gets pushed back to the tank and raises the float switch. I would find the tank and make sure the fluid level is to the top with the jacks retracted. IF you do not know where the tank is run the jacks and listen for the motor, the tank will be connected to the motor. IF you still need more help please tell me which leveling system you have for the jacks, it should say on the controls that you use to operate them.

Robert

Sorry I can not do a phone service at this time, also there is an added fee for that as well.

DID you check the level in the tank for the jacks???

Had jacks serviced 7/16. Is cold weather the alarm still goes off until it warms up as we drive down the road. Now it just goes off all the time. There seems to be enough fluid in the tanks. Is there an alternative way to shut off this alarm? Is that what you want to say
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 5 years ago

I would still verify the level in the tank if you can.

What you might be able to do is disconnect the control panel inside and see if that allows you to drive with the alarm OFF. I am not sure which Jack system you have..
