Steve,

The colors in the 84 310 are:

White with black trace wires (two wires) go to door bell button.

Black with red strip wire & solid white wire go to mercury door switch.

The two wires in the plug are as you indicated for the door lock actuator.

Hope this helps

Brad

Good info...
I will take a closer look at the weekend if I can.
Been feeling under the weather, so playing it by ear.

Just a quick update.
here is the old mounting...
Look how bad this is... look at the thinning of the metal structure at the top and the amound of junk and sediment in the tube...




Did a little inspection and cleaning up on the first jack.


The bearing that the actuator bears again is frozen solid on one Jack... and missing on the other!
I called HWH and they are under $10 each.

On the first jack, the welded stop on the top is bent.



I tried to beat it back to square, but it was not moving much.

Degreased and sanded it out.



Shot some red oxide primer on the parts.



I was trying to decide what color to paint the jack with..
Black was my first choice, but then I had a thought...
A lighter color would be easier to see... for example if it is not retracted or down straight when looking under the MH.
Also oil weepage or leaks would be easier to see...
So...

Thanks Dean!
I know its part of my affliction, but it made no sense to me to put them back as ugly as they were...

Both of the front ones were kinda greasy, but I did spray them down with WD40 liberally a few times in the last couple of years.
Its time to be sure they are not leaking, when they are reattached in the new positions.
Will be doing the pass side one this evening.

Question. I apologize if this was already answered and I didn't see. My levelers work great with the exception of the driver front. It extends and retracts. No oil leaking, but after a night of them being used I have to extend it again. It seems to loose strength. Any ideas?

The seals in the jack could be leaking internally or the control valve could be leaking. The simplest way to be sure would be to swap the jack with another one. The jacks are mounted with 4 bolts, the hydraulic line and the wire for the down indicator light. Not really a big job to remove. Just swap it with the passenger side and see which side goes down over night.

You could buy gauges and fittings to set up to monitor pressure but that might be more work and certainly will cost more than swapping the jacks.

Good luck.

And while you have them out you might as well paint them so they will be pretty like Steve's. I'm sorry I couldn't resist.

Myrtle Lynn, Not to pile on, but I think your rig will call for chrome plating them.

....Which makes me wonder why we've never seen any pics of the underside of your moho??? You're not hiding anything rusty under there are you?
I've always figured it was fully polished too.

Now, now, my underside is a bit personal. Lol. Not hiding anything. No rust under there. With the small oil leak that I was told to leave, keeps it very under coated. It's definitely not chrome plated under there, but it is well kept. My Moho I have to say is rust free. I payed on the top end for it. "Invested" ;-) a lot of money to make her run, drive, and sleep like it should. Don't think I didn't spend years working on her. I did! I just got one I didn't have to rebuild. I say that but a lot is replaced. It is 100% ready, thats the best part. My last thing is I want to remove my emissions and have headers installed. My friend here in town had two now only one( I helped sell the one) when I drive them it had so much power. Mine feels so restricted. She is running so good I am not going to disrupt her now. Next time she goes to the DR's she will have her arteries cleared. Anyone want all that emission stuff? It didn't have cosmetic stuff that needed to be fixed, just a lot of striping, and polishing. Took her out yesterday for a little drive. I found a place here in town that sells pure gas no ethanol. :-) I filled her up right away. It is a new gas station so now I am excited they are here. Oh! Sorry. I will snap a few pictures of my underside for you and post. :-) hope your not disappointed. No chrome. Dirty like the rest. :-)

Started on the other front jack...
It was also ugly, and has some other issues...


The roller bearing is gone... the stop is bent... well the area it is bolted to is! Also check out the tweaked spring wrap!
I am gonna have to get the BIG hammer out on this one!


Whats left of the roller...

What are those?

Sorry to be so ignorant but what are those jacks? Where are they? Do I have those on my MH? Paula

Leveling Jacks, for stabilizing and leveling when parked.
It was a factory option, but mine were added aftermarket I guess.
Your MH might not have them... there is a lever controller beside the drivers seat on mine.
