I have a gulf stream class a RV with dewald leveling system.

Customer Question
I have a gulf...

I have a gulf stream class a RV with dewald leveling system. When I operate the rear jack switch it functions correctly but any other switch wit will continue running & not shut off even with the power switch

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make/model/year of your RV?

2002 Gulf Stream ultra

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '02 RV?

Ultra supreme

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I am. I went to lower the leveling jacks & the pump would not shut off so it melted the solenoid before I could the wire off. The pump was running & sounded like the jacks were bottomed out but they were not moving. I changed the solenoid & it continues to do the same thing but it is only on the left, right & front

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fluids recently?

Yes

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

This can be caused by any of the faults listed below.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/a0j7rl7qix4f64y/11486_Dewald-Hydraulic-Leveling-System-Manual.pdf?dl=0

You will have to have this system tested further unfortunately to then locate the cause and repaired from there.The control module may be the issue with it needing replaced or the pump itself possibly.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
