Normally when you have one jack that is not retracting it could be a solenoid problem or bent jack. What I would do is run the jacks down and then spray them really good with some silicone spray and then see if you can assist the one that is not going all the way up bu pushing on the bottom of the jack. IF that does not work then you might have a solenoid issue if this is a hydraulic system. IF you can get me the manufacturer of the jacks I may be able to assist you some more on this. The name should be on the control panel you use to operate the jacks.

Thanks, Robert

is the soleniod mounted at the jack
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 2 years ago

It depends on the system, if it is hydraulic it is normally mounted at the pump/manifold. Who is the manufacture of the leveling?

power gear
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 2 years ago

OK

Need to check on the control panel for a small p/n number in fine print. IF you have the(###) ###-####pad I need to know if your jacks are all electric or hydraulic. They use that particular control panel for both systems.

Click HERE for a service manual this should help you out as you will be able to look at the wiring diagrams, you will need a volt meter. See page 17.

i will check make checks listed in service manual...do you know where the pump is located
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Could be up front under the grille so you open the front access and look down towards the passenger side or it could be in a storage compartment, sometimes they are under the top entry step as well if your batteries are not in that location. IT varies over the years hard to keep track of. Also if you run the jacks down you should be able to track it down with a helper.
